Our testing, certification and advisory services are delivered independent from each other.
DNV GL Netherlands will focus on the validation and testing of the project developments to enable their subsequent implementation at the three demo sites. Testing in DNV GL’s Flex Power Grid Laboratory will focus in the functional performance of the components, compliance with current standards as well as other reliability and security requirements defined for each of the demo sites.
DNV GL Portugal will focus on understanding the economic interest behind the concept and technologies associated with the demo sites. A cost-benefit analysis will be carried out, deviating from a typical smart-grid cost-benefit analysis of individual functionalities by taking into account the unique aspect which will be common to all proposed demonstration sites, i.e. the integration of different flexibility enabling technologies. Furthermore, DNV GL Portugal will enrich the technical scalability and replicability analysis (carried out by others) by an economic analysis.
