trondLast year's EERA JP Smart Grids General Assembly hosted by Tecnalia in Bilbao was a great success. This year's event will take place in beautiful Trondheim – also known as the science and technology capital of Norway.

The event starts with EERA JP Smart Grids Steering Committee meeting on September 20, and closes with the General Assembly on September 22.

On 21 September the focus is on two ambitious initatives in the Smart Grid domain:
• Opening of The Norwegian National Smart Grid Laboratory & Demonstration Platform

ELECTRA engagement and consultation following CIRED 2016 workshop


cired workshop electra 2016 engageNearly 50 delegates from the CIRED 2016 workshop participated in an interactive ELECTRA side event in Helsinki on 15th June 2016. The event started with an opening explanation of the Web of Cells concept and associated real time controls. The attendees then heard an explanation of the plans, use cases, and SGAM modelling developed for laboratory validation, and participated in an interactive online feedback session. The final session included a description of the control room visualisation and decision support needs of the future decentralised power systems, and was again supported by a feedback session. The results of the online feedback sessions will be collected and reported on, however there is an opportunity for another month to continue the debate and feedback here.

Moreover all the presentations and the fact sheets which illustrate the use cases can be downloaded here.
