The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and the European Distribution System Operators for Smart Grids (EDSO) will focus this year’s edition of INNOGRID2020+ on the next decade’s challenges for the power grids and provide insights and solutions through innovative projects, demonstrators and pilots. The conference will take place in Brussels from 15 to 16 May.
The issues debated will include sector coupling, notably in light of European initiatives such as ETIP SNET and Horizon2020; data and cybersecurity needs from a European but also global perspective, as well as many others important topics related to the power networks.
In addition to engaging presentations, panel sessions and debates, INNOGRID2020+ will run an exhibition session, enabling participants to interact, share knowledge and best practices. The work and results of R&D innovative projects with EU added value will be presented at the conference and at its networking exhibition.
EDSO for Smart Grids represents leading Distribution System Operators cooperating to bring Smart Grids from vision to reality.
ENTSO‐E represents European transmission system operators for electricity coordinating their activities related to system operation, development of market-related issues as well as research & development. ENTSO-E was established and given legal mandates by the EU’s Third Legislative Package for the Internal Energy Market in 2009 to draft, among others, Ten-Year Network Development Plans (TYNDPs) and network codes.
