Kick-off meeting of the EMN Smart Electricity Grids

Join the Launch & JNP Kick-off meeting of the EMN Smart Electricity Grids

Ljubljana, Slovenia, 13 May 2019

The European Energy Union strategy puts high priority on renewable energy, smart energy systems, and energy efficiency in order to 'build a low-carbon, climate resilient future' via 'secure, clean and efficient energy'. This strategy has a profound impact on our electricity grids – the backbone of our modern society. At present there is no recognisable entity that represents the metrology community in discussions on measurement issues related to the future of the electric grid. Therefore, EURAMET created the European Metrology Network (EMN) on Smart Electricity Grids (SEG).

The EMN aims to provide a single point of contact for stakeholders and stakeholder organisations, to realise a coherent NMI response to their measurement challenges, and to maximise the impact of metrology R&D activities in the field of Smart Electricity Grids.

This event is aimed at launching the EMN on Smart Electricity Grids and its Joint Network Project. In the morning, the scope and purpose of the network will be presented, and several internal matters will be discussed. The afternoon is fully dedicated to discussing key network activities to align EMN activities with important target groups. This will include the development of the strategic research agenda and ways of addressing stakeholders.
