The first call for the smart grid Researcher EXchange programme, ELECTRA REX, was published late 2014 and the six successful applicants are now approaching completion of their exchanges. The programme attracted strong interest with a wide range of interesting applications for exchanges in Europe and globally. The exchanges are proving to be highly valuable and relevant to ELECTRA's research objectives, contributing to exciting concepts for innovative voltage and frequency controls for 2030+ grids. A number of co-authored papers are already underway and preparations in progress for an exchange workshop in Vienna at EDST (8-11 September). Come along to learn firsthand of their experiences and find out more about the programme. More calls for exchanges will follow - next opportunity will open on June 22nd 2015. Follow the website for announcements.
