The Purpose of the IDE4L project was to define, design, and demonstrate the ideal grid for all, with an active distribution network that integrates renewable energy sources (RESs) and new loads and guarantees the reliability of classical distribution networks. The active distribution network consists of the infrastructure of power delivery, active resources, and active network management (ANM) and combines passive infrastructure with active resources, ANM functionalities, and distribution automation information and communication technology infrastructure. Active distributed energy resources (DERs) include distributed generation (DG), demand, response, and storage. The concept of a commercial aggregator offering flexibility services is also integrated in an ANM.
