The Project TIGON has launched its presentation video on the new project website: Discover how the project will enhance microgrids for Europe’s energy transition.


TIGON aims to make a robust case for the widespread rollout of hybrid microgrids as a way to make electricity grids greener, more efficient and more resilient. Over four years, the project team will out together pioneering AC/DC microgrids to integrate solar power, energy storage systems, EV charging points and other direct-current loads.


The new project website features TIGON’s rationale and its 4 showcases along with their hybrid microgrid solutions. Throughout the project, the website will offer news, articles and insights on our work. You can also subscribe to the project newsletter. The presentation video, explaining the project in under 2 minutes is also available at the website, as well as the TIGON Youtube channel.


The TIGON project team consists of 15 partners from 8 European countries, led by Spain’s Fundación CIRCE. The website was designed and developed by Fondazione iCons, in charge of the project communication. The role of TUAS and especially the New Energy research group in the project is to replicate the developed and demonstrated solutions in Finnish conditions.


TIGON is funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme and has a budget of roughly 7 million euros. It forms part of the EU’s broader policy of building a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.
