EURELECTRIC Report Sets Out the State Of Play on Smart Grids

20 May 2009

Upgrading the current European electricity grid with 'smarter' technologies is one of the key priorities in the effort to overcome the infrastructural and operational challenges posed by the newly-adopted EU energy-climate legislative package with its triple targets for the year 2020. That being so, "we call upon governments and regulatory authorities to work together towards an optimised business model for all parts of the value chain, from generators to consumers, so as to minimise total costs". These are key messages emerging from a report - Smart Grids and Networks of the Future: EURELECTRIC Views - unveiled yesterday at a EURELECTRIC hosted conference on smart grids. The report is based on input from some 30 major distribution companies from 16 European countries.
