The 2nd Workshop on Electricity Grid organised by the Directorate-General for Energy and Transport took place the 2 April 2009 in Brussels.
The integration of renewable energy sources in the grid needs an impulse in order to increase its substantial contribution to meeting the Lisbon objectives. The workshop aims to concert all the actors playing a key role in shaping the European Electricity Grid from the conception to the development and deployment. It is addressed to the on-going grid projects coordinators/participants, Renewable Energy sectors, the TSOs, DSOs, the industrial IT and other related sectors. The workshop aims to facilitate the detection of the synergies that sets up or reinforce co-operation. It will contribute to the definition of the future orientation of research and demonstration work for the European Electricity Grid within the SET Plan of the European Commission.
