Welcome UNINOVA !

We are pleased to welcome UNINOVA as a new member of the Current/OS Foundation.

The UNINOVA Institute is a multidisciplinary, independent, and non-profit research institute employing around 150 persons, located in the metropolitan area of Lisbon. It was formed in 1986 by the Faculty of S&T of the University Nova de Lisboa (FCT-UNL), a group of industrial associations, a financial holding, and up to 30 companies. It is an active partner of Madan Parque (www.madanparque.pt), a business facilitator and accelerator, incubating Micro and SME’s through several layers of support to entrepreneurial activity. The main aim of UNINOVA is to pursue excellence in scientific research, technical development, advanced training and technology transfer activities.

According to João Goes and João Lourenço, members of UNINOVA’s Board, overcoming the limitations of traditional AC grids (considering efficiency, scalability, renewable energy sources integration), DC offers several advantages, such as higher efficiency, simpler infrastructure, scalability and better compatibility with renewable energy. Current/OS is expected to play a crucial role in terms of harmonizing voltage levels, protection, grounding and interoperability.

The Current/OS Foundation is extremely pleased to be strengthening its collaboration with UNINOVA.
