Call for ETIP SNET working groups candidates

Call for ETIP SNET working groups candidates
23/12/2016
The new European Technology and Innovation Platform Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) just launched its activities last week and is seeking experts to take an active part in five Working Groups. The Working Groups (WGs) will address matters such as: the reliability and efficiency of the smart grid system, storage and interface to other energy networks, flexibility of generation, digitalisation of the energy system and exploitation of research results.

European Technology and Innovation Platform Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET)’s mission is to guide research, development and innovation (RD&I) activities to support Europe's energy transition. The ETIP SNET aims to set-out a vision for research and innovation for smart networks, storage and integrated energy systems and engage stakeholders in this vision. It identifies barriers and solutions to promote innovation, notably related to regulation and funding.

The ETIP SNET aims at elaborating a vision and a Roadmap for R&I activities for smart networks, storage and other sources of flexibility, and integrated energy systems, engaging all stakeholders. It also looks at customer participation and the impact of digitisation.

The ETIP Working Groups (see list below) are to ensure the involvement and contribution of all the stakeholders of the energy system as a whole, providing vision, inputs, guidance and continuous feedback for the development of the integrated R&I Roadmap.

The WGs gather experts representing the widest community of stakeholders related to their area of expertise. Experts acting in the Working Groups aim at providing strategic guidance about RD&I priorities and activities, ensuring the interaction and involvement of the entire expertise needs raised by the integration issues of the electricity system into the wider European energy system. Experts contribute to the WG on a voluntary basis and no reimbursement of expenses is foreseen.

The 5 active working groups of the ETIP SNET are:

WG1: Reliable, economic and efficient smart grid systems
WG2: Storage technologies and sector interfaces
WG3: Flexible generation
WG4: Digitisation of the electricity system and customer participation
WG5: Innovation implementation in the business environment
More information on the working groups and their Terms of reference is available on http://etip-snet.eu/working-groups.html
