The Spanish demonstrator has been carried out in Bilbao area (North of Spain) in a distribution grid operated by Iberdrola Distribución. I has been mainly focused on monitoring and control of LV network and network management methodologies for network operations, although it had to be underlined the selection of two sub-functionalities related to novel approaches to asset management.
