Main objective of EMERGE is to define and validate a new measurement framework for emerging power systems and its validation for selected measurands: frequency, rate of change of frequency, voltage and current phasors, active power in at least two scenarios defined by the phenomena dynamics (and reflected in the selected reporting rate if the measurements and associated steady state flagging concept).
The impact of EMERGE can be seen as three-folded:
- (i) scientifically, following the 4M paradigm, an easier transition to the future sampled-values-waveform measurements and information retrieval will be enabled.
- (ii) economically, by an adapted control to the fast changes of systems with low inertial response: a methodology able to use highly time-granulated load demand and/or generation profiling (below 15 minute) of prosumers and their optimal temporal and spatial mapping with possible services to be offered in local electricity markets.
- (iii) environmental and societal, by pursuing the Green Deal  objectives of “supplying clean, affordable and secure energy” through the development of smart infrastructure building blocks for future energy systems
