New chair elected to the European Metrology Network (EMN) for Smart Electricity Grids

Dr Stefano Lodetti

Congratulations to Stefano Lodetti, new EMN Smart Grids chair!

Stefano obtained his doctorate in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency at the Universidad de Zaragoza in Spain, an area he was drawn to as the impact of research in this fast-moving field provides tangible results in the real world.

On 3rd of May this year he was elected to the chair of EMN Smart Grids with a term to run until 2026.

Stefano considers his term to be the start of a new phase for the network. The first phase starting in 2018 with the formation of the EMN with support from the EURAMET EMPIR joint network project (JNP) SEG-Net, which concluded on the 30th April 2023. During this time the EMN launched its new website and drafted its Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), due to be published in the near future.

Now that the EMN enters a new era Stefano, based at NPL, the National Metrology Institute of the UK, outlined what he considers its aims over the coming years:

“Our aim is to enhance coordination of national activities, provide a single point of contact for stakeholders, increase coherence in R&D efforts and maximise the impact of metrology. I see the EMN Smart Grids as the single voice of European metrology for smart electricity grids, and I aim at strengthening our links with the electricity sector to promote the role of metrology and facilitate the delivery of our science to address measurement challenges of future electricity grids”.

EURAMET would like to congratulate Stefano on his election and say thank you to Enrico Mohns for his work as acting chair over the previous year and also to the first chair, Gert Rietveld, who did a great job in establishing the EMN.

EMN Smart Grids is supported by the joint network project 18NET03. EMPIR projects are co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
