GRID COLOMBIA - “Estudio de factibilidad técnica y económica de soluciones de redes inteligentes para el sector eléctrico colombiano”
Dates: October 2014 – October 2015
Grant agreement number: CO-T1337-SN2
The study will address the development of the Colombian electric sector by means of Smart Grid solutions, carrying out:
Analysis of technical and economic viability of the solutions developed.
Best practises study for designing the architectures.
Cost-benefit assessments of the most suitable Smart Grid solutions.
The project, which is a collaborative project between Spanish and Colombian entities, will be supported by:
National Experts (Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira)
Expert in Analysis and Planning (AFI)
External consultant in Analysis and Planning (Eclareon)
Expert in ICTs (Universidad de Alcalá)
The overall objective of the consultancy is to:
Identify feasible solutions in Smart Grids and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) with a major potential for their implementation in Colombia, developing a Roadmap for their deployment in the country.
The specific objective of the study is to:
Define a Roadmap for Smart Grid development in Colombia 2030, identifying the most suitable specific strategies, standards and regulations for the implementation and deployment of a Smart Grid in the country.
CIRCE will be the entity responsible for the management and coordination of the project.
CIRCE will participate in all the sections described:
Smart Grids solutions identification considering their adequacy to Colombia’s needs
Definition of the methodology to quantify the contribution of Smart Grids technologies to Colombia’s objectives and to prioritize the most influential technologies
Definition of the KPIs needed to evaluate the improvements of the different Smart Grids technologies
Develop the simulations required to obtain the KPIs values
Coordination of the ICTs solutions most suitable for Colombia
