Welcome to SGEVL

The Laboratory of Smart Grids and Electric Vehicles, which was a result of project REIVE, constitutes a cutting edge and unique technological infrastructure to identify, specify, develop and test innovative solutions to actively and intelligently manage electric power grids.

This infrastructure is intended to support the necessary developments for the new energy paradigm, characterized by a higher use of distributed renewable energy sources, in a framework of increasing demand-side management, increasing energy efficiency using a systemic connection between the generation and demand dynamics.

This project aims also to promote the creation of qualified manpower in the North region, based on the technological development and in the improvement of the efficiency of the industrial processes and of energy conversion

For the first time in Portugal!
This laboratory infrastructure makes it possible to test, for the first time in Portugal, advanced hardware and software to manage and control power grids in an almost real environment.
