In-house R&D

Microgrid MiRIS

The largest industrial green energy and microgrid test center in Europe.

MiRIS, for Micro Integrated Network of Seraing, is able to operate “on-grid” and “off-grid”. The whole site is optimized thanks to our Energy Management System – EMS, developed in-house. MiRIS allows to test different types of stationary batteries, installations related to electric mobility but also to make simulations of projects to validate the parameters such as the dimensioning, the technological solution recommended for the on-grid as well as the off-grid case, the management of the EMS, etc. The pilot site is operational since 2018.
