The INTENSYS4EU project has been selected by the European Commission to support the work of the European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for the Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) gathering actors from electricity, storage and ICT but also heating, transport and gas.
ETIPs have been created in the framework of the new Integrated Roadmap of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (the SET Plan) – Europe’s energy RD&I master plan.
The ETIP SNET will set-out a vision for research and innovation for smart networks, storage and integrated systems and engage stakeholders in this vision. It will also identify innovation barriers, notably related to regulation and financing. The ETIP SNET merges and replaces the European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) and the European Technology Platform (ETP) SMARTGRIDS.
The project INTENSYS4EU (full name: INTegrated ENergy SYStem, a Pathway for Europe) gathers Zabala Innovation Consulting (coordinator), TECHNOFI (technical director), the European Network of Transmission System Operators for
Electricity (ENTSO-E), EDSO for Smart Grids (EDSO), the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE), the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA), Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico (RSE) and Bacher Energie AG. The project started on the 1st of October, 2016 and will last 4 years.
