INFOCOM 2022Smart5Grid Partners26 Nov 2022Special Session ‘5G in the Smart Grid – The Novel Approach of the Smart5Grid European ProjectIn the context of the Workshop ‘Research Projects for creating the Future and Innovative Telecoms Market’, which was organised by OTE, in conjuction with the 24th Infocom World 2022, in Athens (29th-30th November), Smart5Grid partners organised a Special Session entitled ‘5G in the Smart Grid – The Novel Approach of the Smart5Grid European Project’. Smart5Grid Partners, OTE (Dr. I.Chochliouros, Mr M.Rantopoulos), Entra Energy (Ms R.Rumenova) and IPTO (Mr. D.Brodimas) contributed with 5 presentations, which introduced the project, communicated the Opportunities and Challenges for DSOs/TSOs and the developing of a modern network interconnection scheme by the 5G operators, as derive from UC4.Additionally, a presentation on Distributed Energy Operation & Maintenance in RES Installations was introduced as derived from UC3. Finally, the Essential Components and Core Features of the Smart5Grid Platform for Implementing the 5G Perspective were also presented.
Smart5Grid 1st RoadshowSmart5Grid Partners26 Feb 2023Special Event for Italian audience targeting experimenters and developersOn the 26th of January, Smart5Grid organized its first Roadshow event, in Cagliari, Italy, with the collaboration of the Italian Partners of the project: Enel Grids, Engineering, Wind Tre, Athonet and Stam. Targeting experimenters and developers, the Smart5Grid project illustrated how the use of 5G-based Cloud-Edge Computing technologies can foster the digital transition of the Energy Industry. The content of the presentations covered some relevant topics related to our experimentation:

-Overview of the energy scenario and need for digitalization
- State of the art of 5G implementation and milestones at Country level and next steps for towards the implementation of the full 5G Core functionalities
- Private 5G networks and applications in real use cases
- Orchestration and how to handle the distributed computation
- Our platforms (OSR and V&V) as facilitator for developers
- The project demos as concrete implementation examples and opportunities for further improvement from third-parties
- Advantages for third parties in participating to our experimentation
Smart5Grid 2nd RoadshowSmart5Grid Partners8 Mar 23Special Event for Greek audience targeting experimenters and developersOn the 8th of March, Smart5Grid projects organised its 2nd Roadshow event in Athens entitled '5G empowering the energy sector event', with the collaboration of the Greek Partners of the project: OTE, IPTO, 8BELLS, SIDROCO, INFOLYSiS, University of Athens.

Smart5Grid platform comes along with the required support and assistance through a clear and trustworthy SME experimentation roadmap. This event was an opportunity to interact with external stakeholders, with the goal to build awareness about the opportunity offered by the 5G network’s programmability capability for serving different energy use cases. In addition, we aim to create interest in becoming part of the Smart5Grid Network Apps ecosystem and experimenting in the project’s open platform.


5G Use Cases for the Energy VerticalSmart5Grid Consortium21 Jun 2022Τhe aim of this workshop was to discuss the application of 5G technology in Smart Grids via the following Use Cases:

- Automatic Power Distribution Grid Fault Detection.
- Remote Inspection of Automatically Delimited Working Areas at Distribution Level.
- Millisecond Level Precise Distributed Generation Monitoring.
