CALLIA – Open Inter-DSO electricity markets for RES integration

CALLIA is a European Smart Grids project within the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus framework of the European Union. The main goal of CALLIA is improving RES integration at the DSO level in a transnational context. Therefore, technology development and a consistent regulatory framework are required and will be realized in CALLIA.

In November 2015, CALLIA was selected by ERA-Net together with 20 other projects out of 50 applications. CALLIA’s start date will be July 1st, 2016. Twelve project partners from Austria, Belgium, Germany and Turkey will collaborate within CALLIA having a budget of around € 4.8 million available.

Dr. Langniß – Energie & Analyse was primarily in charge of developing the CALLIA proposal and of organizing and coordinating the application process. After the project start, Dr. Langniß – Energie & Analyse will be coordinating the project together with ISC Konstanz.


  • Comparison and harmonization of processes for collaborations betweeen TSOs and DSOs
  • Integration of multi-agent systems in transmission and distribution grids
  • Preparation of a transnational exploitation plan
  • Expert knowledge for energy policy and energy systems
  • Development of project plan and project description

Development Smart Grids Showcase C/sells

C/sells as an extensive show case project creates an east-west-solar arc connecting solar energy dominated "energy cells" solar cells with Baden-Wuerttemberg in the center. Due to the high solar generation and the mix of urban and rural areas, Baden-Wuerttemberg is predestined for the project. Furthermore a diverse interaction pattern provides optimal conditions in order to implement new cooperation models.

More than 50 partners from Electricity Supply Industry, manufacturing, energy consumers, municipalities, and academic research will work over a period of four years on building up the energy system of the future. Dr. Langniß - Energie & Analyse compiled a consortium with over 50 partners from business and academia. A detailed draft had been drafted coordinating the comprehensive input of the partners. The draft presented the project’s content, approach, cost structure and organization with an overall scope of 100 million Euros. Dr. Langniss – Energie & Analyse supported funding applications of the partners, and coordinated with funding authorities.

Business models for the energy supply industry in developing countries

Distributed generation based on renewable energies offer consumers in Developing Countries affordable electricity supply independent from partially unreliable centralized grids. By exploiting these technologies, the business models of existing utilities and investments in conventional power plans in these countries are both challenged.

In a short study the challenges and problems are sketched in detail and based on selected cases, potential solutions and new business models are sketched. Different scenarios are developed and courses of action for utilities and financing bodies are presented.
The results are documented in a report (English) and presented to the client in a presentation.



Expert for energy policy and energy systems; preparation of a short study sketching the problems, developing options of action and offering potential solutions.

Introduction of a Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff, Zambia

The Zambian government plans the introduction of a Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff (REFIT) which shall promote deployment of solar energy and biomass based electricity generation with fixed remunerations.

A study compares international experiences of such schemes with a focus on African nations. The findings of the study are discussed with stake-holders in a multi-stage process.
