One of the largest consortia to date has been launched under the Horizon Europe framework, the TwinEU project. 75 partners coming together to create a pan-European digital twin concept of the electrical system.


Granada, 27/02/2024 - TwinEU, an emblematic project for the implementation of the EU Action Plan: Digitization of the Energy System. It will harness a unique set of skills from network operators, market players, technology providers, and research centers to create a pan-European digital twin concept based on the federation of local twins, enabling reliable, resilient, and secure operation of the electrical infrastructure while facilitating new business models that will accelerate the achievement of Europe's net-zero emission climate goals. 

It will offer a set of tools to be demonstrated in 8 pilots across 11 EU countries, with the aim of ensuring the replicability of solutions developed in different geographical and market environments, testing a wide variety of use cases. These tools will enable in the physical and cyber network: 

  • Improved resilience
  • Enhancedobservability and control capability
  • Advancedforecastingforoptimizedmarketactions
  • Intelligent and coordinatedplanning

A project that will validate the framework developed and facilitate common practice among system operators, technology providers, and market actors. Digital twinning is addressed across multiple layers throughout field demonstrations. Most studies demonstrate the urgent need for digital twins that replicate the real behavior of the energy network and market. 

To achieve these objectives, the consortium partners will collaboratively work together for 3 years in a structured and efficient manner, drawing upon the advancements made in numerous previous projects within the Horizon Europe framework. 

The Iberian pilot will focus on the security and resilience of the electrical system. To achieve this, TwinEU will utilize a series of digital twins and a common framework for interaction between them, aimed at improving the security and resilience of the entire Iberian energy system, from generation, transmission, and distribution of energy to energy markets and end consumers.

Cuerva will play a fundamental role in the development of these activities as part of the Iberian pilot. As a Distribution System Operator (DSO), its responsibilities will encompass a range of tasks in collaboration with the other partners, bringing expertise to the definition of stakeholder requirements for the digital twin. This involves assessing the conditions and specifications of digital technologies essential for establishing robust use cases. Subsequently, it will act as a demonstrator, leveraging advanced digital infrastructure to facilitate network planning and enhance resilience. The goal for the Granada-based utility will be to effectively detect and address technical limitations.
