R&D+i projects that contribute to the business

Innovation in the Red Eléctrica Group consists of providing value, driving and promoting the incorporation of technologies, solutions and new ways of working as a lever of growth and efficiency that promote a cultural change to take on the Group's future challenges, supporting its longterm sustainability.

European project aimed at overcoming the technical barriers that the current pan-European grid could encounter to safely integrate massive amounts of energy from renewable sources. See more.

Grid2030 is a multi-year, innovation, collaborative program where Red Eléctrica de España and InnoEnergy together explore radically new socio-economic or technical innovations in the power transmission industry. See more.

Demand forecast
Development of new tools for forecasting electrical demand both in Spanish peninsular and non-peninsular territories (NPS) electrical systems. Completed in 2016. See more
Demand forecast
First-of-its-kind project for the deployment of demand-side management mechanisms in which more than 1,000 households in the Corredor del Henares area in the Community of Madrid are participating and which is serving to test how citizens can be more actively involved in the electricity system. Completed in 2015. See more
A project to identify a number of electricity demand patterns or profiles of small consumers, through the analysis of a sample of these consumers who already have a smart meter with hourly metering installed. Completed in 2015. See more
Perfila Project
Battery storage system in a substation of the transmission grid. Completed in 2013. See more
