Sylfen and the european project GIFT

European project GIFT

The GIFT project is a collaborative European project to help decarbonise the energy mix of the European islands. These islands must respect the regulations of their countries, which encourage the deployment of a greener energy mix to align with European and international agreements. GIFT wants to develop innovative systems to enable islands to integrate vast amounts of renewable production.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under a grant agreement No 824410.

To achieve this goal, the consortium brings together 17 partners from 7 countries.

GIFT partners

Through the development of multiple innovative solutions, such as the creation of a virtual power station, a better production between supply and demand and the visualization of these data via a platform, the creation of innovative energy storage systems between electricity and thermal networks. and mobility, GIFT will increase the amount of renewable production to reduce dependence on fossil fuels such as diesel generators. The goal is to reduce carbon emissions.

Sylfen will install a Smart Energy Hub system at one of the two test sites: Harstad in Norway, or Procida in Italy.

Sylfen is also responsible for defining the strategies for its storage system as well as those of the project's partners.
