European Network for Cooperation on Energy Transition Electricity

TR@ NSENER challenge is to respond to RIS3 (Research and Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialisation) commitments of each region involved in the project (Spain, France and Portugal). The project addresses the issue of energy efficiency, one of the main challenges of the energy transition. Mobilizes partners in each territory involving experts recognized at European level, representing the different links in the value chain: from basic science to technology, social acceptance to the economy through legislation and training.

The challenge of the project is to increase the innovation potential of the regions in the field of technologies for electricity. TR@ NSENER aims to improve the efficiency of electrical systems addressing key actors and to make them more efficient technologies. It intends to respond to the demands of the energy transition maximizing the capabilities of the existing potential, through cooperation between companies and laboratories, by pooling knowledge and equipment for innovation and quality training.

The innovative aspect of the project is to create synergies in the transnational space between companies, laboratories and technology infrastructures serving companies in order to create innovations in the field of energy efficiency. The project considers the value chain from source to use, and incorporates public laboratories, clusters and innovation agencies. The emphasis has been on the presence of companies in the project activities.

In the end, collaborative research between companies and laboratories, the sharing of infrastructure, the training of excellence and cooperation between clusters should create significant synergies within and between SRI. Attention will be placed on the transferability of products (demonstrator), so in the realization of projects from the project workshops.

To stimulate the ability of SRI, TR@ NSNER will provide the tools necessary for all players in the value chain: the performance in terms of training will benefit both universities and businesses. The pooling of technological infrastructure and research projects will benefit both businesses and laboratories. Finally, a cluster network under the project will be set up allowing future collaborations, greater visibility and impact in terms of image.

In the TR@ NSENER project the main role of CeDInt is the development of a pilot in smart and efficient lighting. In it they will develop, test and demonstrate the applicability of new technologies.

The Open-IoT (Internet of Things) pilot for the intelligent campus will be developed within the UPM in the Campus of International Excellence Montegancedo located in Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid) (

CeDInt-UPM has installed and tested the Open-IoT Solution (Universal solution for IoT based on standard protocols IP supported) in order to improve energy efficiency in buildings, public spaces (exterior lighting) and other environments (greenhouses and factories ). The Open-IoT solution is currently deployed in several pilots: CeDInt Smart Building, Smart Campus of Moncloa, GreenLabs, Smart Street Lighting, Smart Homes and Industry 4.0.

The TR@ NSENER project will focus on the BATStreet Lighting technology enabling control lighting pedestrian walkways and parking lots. The control is performed individually in each lamp, depending on the level of illumination and presence detection measured. Thus, the energy consumption of the entire electrical system is optimized.
