Innovating grid technologies for sustainable energy

Contributed by: Greenovate! Europe

From 2017-11-22 to 2017-11-22, Belgium
Join Best Paths’ experts in Madrid, Spain on 22nd November 2017 for the workshop “Best Paths: Innovating grid technologies for sustainable energy” to share experiences and learn more about the latest developments in the state-of-the-art technologies for electricity grids.
Major development of the European grid infrastructure is critical not only to bringing renewable-generated electricity from far away generation sites to consumers, but also maintaining secure and sustainable power system.

With nearly 40 leading organisations from research, industry, utilities, and transmission system operators, the EU-funded Best Paths project aims to develop novel network technologies to increase pan-European transmission network capacity and electricity system flexibility. The project seeks to validate the technical feasibility, costs, impacts and benefits of the tested grid technologies through five large-scale demonstrations.
