ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus is an initiative of 21
European countries and regions.
The vision for smart grids in Europe is to create an electric power system that integrates renewable energies and enables flexible consumer and production technologies. This can help to shape an electricity grid with a high security of supply, coupled with low greenhouse gas emissions, at an affordable price. The aim is to support the development of the technologies, market designs and customer adoptions that are necessary to reach this goal.
ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus is providing a hub for
the collaboration of European member-states.
It supports the coordination of funding partners, enabling joint funding of RDD projects. Beyond that ERA-Net SG+ builds up a knowledge community, involving key demo projects and experts from all over Europe, to organise the learning between projects and programs from the local level up to the European level.
