The workshop organized by ELECTRA and by the EERA SG JP, in cooperation with Cyprus University has been successfully held in Nicosia on May 11th.
In the first part of the workshop, the public authorities and local grid operators provided a detailed picture of their needs and problems, in a context characterized by a growing and rapid penetration of RES.
In the afternoon ELECTRA Partners delivered presentations on specific technical topics and outlined their experience in European countries.
Although not foreseen in the program a round table was held at the end of the workshop; hence a lively debate occurred and specific questions and clarifications were asked to the presenters.
