Pan European Technology Energy Research Approach

Project description

Sustainable energy for all Europeans

To ensure sustainable, secure and affordable energy supplies in the European Union, a fully integrated grid and energy market is required. Through integrated emerging technologies and common energy market rules facilitated through cross-border infrastructure, that can optimise the use of sustainable resources in the EU, meaning that energy can be produced in one EU country and delivered to consumers in another. Cooperation and collaboration are key. This is why the EU-funded PANTERA project will identify and implement initiatives aimed at raising the participation of EU countries in the needed R&I for developing technologies, systems and markets in support of the common energy market and the energy transition. The project’s main goal is to bridge the gaps in research and innovation in the energy field that exist between EU Member States. Its mission is to become the single point of reference for smart grids in Europe.


Collaborative work is pivotal in the development work that the consortium proposes through the PANTERA CSA. Through this coordinated activity the consortium is confident that it will deliver a multi-dimensional platform of pan-European status and influence capable of leveraging coherence and trust as a pull towards enhanced R&I in energy systems centered around an integrated grid active and responsive. This proposed platform, can work for Local Energy Systems in an integrated PAN European Smart Grid with specific emphasis on the less privileged / low spending countries. It will bring together the attractiveness of successful partnerships being national, regional or European building through them the will for enhanced adaption to areas and partnerships that can broaden active participation for mutual benefit. Emphasis will be given to develop an innovative top-down and bottom-up approach for effectively identifying the key challenges in accelerating R&I activities in low spending countries. Formalize a governance structure capable of delivering targeted objectives that will bring under the same umbrella all active entities / stakeholders in the field of smart grids / storage and local energy systems to leverage synergies and maximize benefits. Develop enhanced knowledge-sharing mechanisms that help identify, discuss and structure the key R&I challenges. Deliver through the platform ready-made tools that will facilitate the collection of real data / results from on-going projects, build a useful shareable data repository, capable of supporting case studies of exploitable results, scenario building and local energy system analysis accessible by all interested stakeholders. Organize dedicated workshops which facilitate exchanges of experience and capacities between members of R&I community in collaboration with already on-going activities aiming to wider participation, strengthen objectives and extent impact of achieved results.
