UBITECH and UBITECH Energy participate at the kick-off of the ELECTRON Innovation Action on resilient and self-healed electrical power nanogrid

UBITECH and UBITECH Energy participate at the virtual kick-off meeting hosted by INTRASOFT INTERNATIONAL (October 14-15, 2021) of the ELECTRON Innovation Action, officially started on October 1st, 2021. The project is funded by European Commission under Horizon 2020 Programme (Grant Agreement No. 101021936) and spans on the period October 2021 – September 2024. The ELECTRON project aims to deliver a new-generation EPES platform, capable of empowering the resilience of energy systems against cyber, privacy, and data attacks through four main pillars, i.e. risk assessment and certification, anomaly detection and prevention, failure mitigation and energy restoration, and addressing internal threats and gaps through AR-VR-based personnel training and certification, while fostering the cyber protection standardization and certification via three novel authorities, namely the cybersecurity lighthouse, the cybersecurity training and certification authority, and the energy trading center.

UBITECH presents a scientific paper on verifying complex protocols using trusted computing at ESORICS STM 2021

The paper entitled β€œRoot-of-Trust Abstractions for Symbolic Analysis: Application to Attestation Protocols” has been accepted for presentation at the 17th International Workshop on Security and Trust Management, co-located with the 26th European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS) 2021, held virtually from October 4 – 8, 2021. Dr Thanassis Giannetsos, Head of UBITECH’s Digital Security and Trusted Computing Research Group, and his co-authors propose a methodology for proving security in scenarios based on services that make use of Roots-of-Trust (RoTs), by idealizing the internal functionalities of the security device, except those that provide explicit cryptographic functionalities for the service being offered.

UBITECH ENERGY is awarded by ENTSO-E a study about the β€œIntegration of the Power and Heat Sectors”

The European Commission’s legislative package (Fit for 55 package) aims to ensure that EU policies are in line with the climate goals agreed by the Council and the European Parliament by revising and updating EU legislation and by putting in place new initiatives. This set of proposals includes an Amendment of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), which showcases the importance that energy efficiency will play in the energy transition. In this context, the concept of sector coupling (SC) has been emerged, representing an approach to replace fossil fuels with energy from renewable electricity sources. One of the most prominent coupling of sectors is the integration of the power and heat sectors, i.e., either by direct electrification from renewable energy sources or power transformation in order to be used for residential/district level heating (power-to-heat, also known as P2H). Towards this quest, the Working Group 4 (WG4) Future of Energy Systems of the Research, Development and Innovation Committee (RDIC) of ENTSO-E awarded UBITECH ENERGY a contract to perform a study with TSO perspective on Integration of the Power and Heat Sectors. The goal is to conduct a comprehensive study, focused on the potential benefits, e.g., unlocking flexibility potential through sector coupling, increased VRES integration, reduced VRES curtailment, and challenges, such as grid impact assessment, energy adequacy and grid adequacy, that TSOs will have to address in the coming years.

Suite5 and UBITECH presents BEYOND on Sustainable Places 21 Conference

On September 29, the BEYOND H2020 Project led the β€œData and Intelligence sharing for transforming buildings into active nodes in the future energy system” workshop which took place in the context of the Sustainable Places 2021. Buildings of all types are a major contributor to global energy usage, driving much discussion on how to be decarbonized. At the same time, buildings produce large datasets providing significant opportunities for more efficient performance monitoring and optimization by enabling better understanding and offering further insights on all aspects affecting their operation through Big Energy Data Analytics. Actually, the real value of big data produced by buildings is hidden in their sharing with all energy market actors whose operations are directly or indirectly linked to the energy performance of buildings, spanning ESCOs, City Authorities, the Construction Industry, Network Operators, Energy Retailers and Aggregators, among others.
