The European Technology Platform on SmartGrids (ETP SG) celebrated on 29 April its 5th General Assembly in Brussels. It was attended by over 200 participants.

The assembly was the occasion to present and debate the ETP SG view on future Research priorities for the ongoing H2020 programme. The ETP SG launched detailed challenges and objectives of the future grid, funding needs for the next years, as well as regulatory barriers for the implementation of technologies. It is expected that it will serve as major input for the future H2020 Work Programme 2016-2017 to be released in September this year. The report is available for download here.

An essential part of the day was dedicated to the interaction between the ETP SG, National Technology Platforms, the Global Smart Grid Federation and other European initiatives in the area of renewable generation and smart demand. The ETP SG provides the link with National Technology Platforms, in order to ensure that European and National Research and Innovation programmes in the field are aligned, and that enhanced cooperation among national platforms is achieved.

During the Assembly, the 1st European Innovative SmartGrids Solutions Competition was held."Meltemi Community Pilot Site" promoted by the National Technical University of Athens was selected by the participants as the most innovative project. It consists on 170 cottages providing a perfect living test field that has been employed in several European and national R&D projects. It has been used to validate methods of intelligent load management and increasing use of RES.
