European SmartGrids Technology Platform - Vision and strategy for Europe�s electricity networks of the future

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


Whilst current electricity networks presently have fulfilled their function effectively, more of the same will not be sufficient to meet current challenges and policy imperatives. In this context, the European Technology Platform (ETP) SmartGrids was set up in 2005 to create a joint vision of European networks for 2020 and onwards. The platform includes representatives from industry, transmission and distribution system operators, research bodies and regulators. It has identified clear objectives and proposes a strategy for the development of future electricity networks.
