FLEXGRID CEI: 33 new projects chosen

Call for Expressions of Interest in the FLEXGRID program

Final results of the FLEXGRID CEI:

133 companies proposing technology and service offers
106 of which are interested in involvement in the Flexgrid projects
60 new projects
or project components
75% from entities in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region

The two aims of the Flexgrid CEI were to:

  • Promote technology and service offers to:

– Flexgrid projects
– Major buyers and solution integrators
– Emerging smart grid markets

  • Bring new projects into the Flexgrid programme.


The first step in the assessment process focused on new projects, as they constitute new opportunities to bridge the gap between supply and demand, supplementing the regional and cross-cutting projects of the initial programme.

  • 33 new projects were initially chosen by the FLEXGRID steering committees, who met in late December 2016 and early January 2017. Those involved in these projects will be informed of their decision. The assessment process is continuing for the other projects.
  • Qualification of the product/service offers and applications to be involved in existing projects for this large-scale regional deployment “contract” has started and will continue until April 2017.

The CEI also found that there is a considerable need for discussions between the companies and the regions. This was identified during the 260 meetings held by Capenergies to support entities with building their projects and preparing their offers.

These discussions, and more broadly all the interactions with those involved in the projects since Flexgrid was selected in March 2016, have identified the support needed to ensure that the Flexgrid projects and tenders for Smart Grid contracts are successful, , including:

  • Building and developing projects and offers
  • Visibility of the offer and the application/span>
  • Financial engineering
  • Access to studies and key data
  • Sharing and cooperation initiatives, building relationships, dialogue with national decision-makers
  • Increasing the national and international visibility of projects, offers and those involved
