We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Innogrid2020+ is an EU event on innovation in electricity networks, co-organised by the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and the European Distribution System Operators for Smart Grids (EDSO).
This 7th year edition will focus on the next decade's challenges for the power grids and provide insights and solutions through innovative projects, demonstrators and pilots. Special attention will be devoted to sectorial integration, as well as data and cybersecurity needs resulting from an increasingly digitalised world, by including them in a transatlantic and global perspective. The conference will also look at sector coupling in light of the European initiatives such as ETIP SNET and Horizon2020.
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre will present its work on smart grid project observation and monitoring, cost-benefit analysis of smart grid pilots and mapping of smart grid and interoperability laboratories.
