The Project
 
The project Service Oriented Grid for the Network of the Future (SOGNO) will provide turnkey services for distribution system operators implementing next generation data-driven monitoring and control systems, based on 5G based ICT. It will combine hardware, software solutions and research activities on different areas, such as advanced deep learning, 5G communication, and cloud virtualisation, to build a new philosophy of electrical grid management.
 

THE SOGNO CHALLENGE

Our energy systems will increasingly be based on high levels of RES penetration and distribution system operators (DSOs) will need new insight into how their networks are performing to optimise their operations financially.

At the same time, the 5G mobile networks will be deployed by 2025 offering low latency, high availability services enabling data driven control. The evolution of the energy sector is increasingly focused on energy as a service.  

SOGNO will address the growing needs of DSOs to have real-time insight into the operation of their networks and to be able to remotely optimise their operations by supporting them in providing a cost-effective and seamless, secure power supply for their customers.

 

 


THE SOGNO VISION AND OBJECTIVES

The SOGNO project will provide turnkey services simplifying the life of the DSOs by maturing the services implementing next generation data-driven monitoring and control systems, based on 5G based ICT. 
It has the ambitious goal of combining hardware, software solutions and research activities on different areas, such as advanced deep learning, 5G communication, and cloud virtualisation, to build a new philosophy of electrical grid management. 

SOGNO will unlock a new service-oriented market making Europe’s energy sector the most advanced and open in the world.
  • An Open API will be provided to enable third parties to market their services in our eco-system creating further market growth.
  • Regulations will prioritise data traffic to ensure optimal operation of critical power distribution infrastructure.
  • Ethical business models will support the market introduction of turnkey services.
  • The results will be validated in DSO field trials.
