In most European countries SmartGrids initiatives are growing aiming to advance the SmartGrids development and to analyse the national needs for the future grid.
In order to achieve this goal, the European Technology Platform (ETP) on SmartGrid is striving to align its work with national and regional needs and thus aims at a close cooperation with regional and national initiatives in order to promote the European view on SmartGrids development.
Based on the first information exchange between the National and Regional SmartGrids initiatives in Europe, this map shows the top priorities in the SmartGrids area the involved platforms are working on:
