Welcome to PARITY Main Mission

“The aspiration of PARITY project is to address the “structural inertia” of existing distribution grids by delivering a transactive grid & market framework. PARITY will go beyond the traditional “top-down” grid management practices by delivering a unique local flexibility market platform through the seamless integration of IoT and blockchain technologies. By delivering a market for automated flexibility exchange based on smart contracts & blockchain, PARITY will facilitate efficient and transparent local flexibility transactions and reward flexibility in a cost-reflective and symmetric manner, through price signals based on real-time grid operational constraints and available DER flexibility. By deploying State-of-the-Art IoT technologies PARITY will offer distributed intelligence (DER profiling) and self-learning/self organization capabilities (automated real-time distributed control), orchestrated by the cost- reflective flexibility market signals generated by the blockchain market platform. Within PARITY, DERs will form dynamic clusters that essentially comprise self- organized networks of active DER nodes that will efficiently distribute and balance global and local intelligence, enabling real-time aggregated & P2P transactions through enhanced forecasting, optimization and control of DER flexibility. Finally, the PARITY solution includes novel tools for Active Network Management, including an innovative STATCOM and PQ monitoring device, that will enable the DSO to enhance its management capabilities, grid observability and RES hosting capacity.”

PARITY addresses the “structural inertia” of DGs by delivering a transactive flexibility framework that will increase durability and efficiency of the electrical grid, while simultaneously enabling the adoption of more RES through enhanced real- time control of DER Flexibility combined with novel Active Network Management functionalities.

#PARITY developed a privacy and security framework that includes mechanisms at different levels to protect smart grid equipment and users' personal data against possible risks, in compliance with #GDPR.

#PARITY wants to speed up the adoption of #LFM in Europe. However, there are barriers that hinder their proliferation. We studied them providing 6 themes: fit current lifestyles, administrative, standardization, trust, technical, & costs. (1/2)

Utilize the innovative #Oracle gateway, PARITY accomplished the first Lab Trial use case for pre-paid energy contract along with @QueTechnologies, @HT_EnergyLabs & @hive_power. (1/2)

In PARITY we are developing a Local Flexibility Market (LFM), activating flexibility for the local DSO, as well as a Local Electricity Market (LEM), which facilitates peer-to-peer trade among prosumers. Our proposed market structure will be published in October. Stay tuned!

Blockchain-powered local flexibility markets must be energy efficient and GDPR-compliant. #PARITY is solving that thanks to @cosmos network and pseudo-anonymization techniques. @hive_power

The residential pilot site of #AEM is located in the suburbs of #Lugano region #Ticino #Switzerland. 18 residential dwellings, a nursery, 5 PV installations and a 50kWh battery make this community a perfect living lab to validate PARITY @supsi_ch @EU_H2020 https://t.co/tqaS9lGrpZ
