Title

European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid and Smart Energy Systems Research, Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out – Second Edition

Concept

What will Europe's energy system look like in 10 years? The 2030 targets for decarbonising the EU economy have been agreed. The transition is underway. The integration of renewable energy resources and turning the existing power system into a smart grid are among the top goals. The EU-funded ERIGrid 2.0 project will address the challenges of the energy transition by widening and advancing access to European research infrastructure. Serving as a single entry point for researchers active in smart grids and integration of renewables, the project will develop a broad spectrum of improved services, methods and tools. It is the third phase. The first was the DERIri project, which focused on the provision of access around distributed energy resources. The second phase was the ERIGrid project, which successfully broadened the services to the system level.
