European Energy Research Alliance JP on Smart Grids: activity update

Fifteen leading European Research Institutes have taken up the challenge to found a European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). The key objective of the EERA is to accelerate the development of new energy technologies by conceiving and implementing Joint Research Programmes in support of the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan pool and integrate activities and resources, combining national and Community sources of funding and maximizing complementarities and synergies. The EERA Joint Programme on Smart Grids, that is coordinated by RSE from Italy aims at addressing in a medium- to long-term research perspective, one of the most critical areas directly relating to the effective acceleration of the smart grid development. In terms of human resources, the JP on Smart Grids gathers together a minimum guarantee R&D effort summing up to about 100 person years/year and the following Sub-Programmes (SP) make part of it: SP1 – Network operation, SP2 – Energy management, SP3 – Control system interoperability, SP4 – Electrical storage technologies, SP5 – Transmission Networks. The JP on Smart Grids has already accomplished several goals, among which the most relevant are the enhancement of research activities, the launching of collaborations and the publication of the first technical deliverables.

Fifteen leading European Research Institutes have taken up the challenge to found a European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). The key objective of the EERA is to accelerate the development of new energy technologies by conceiving and implementing Joint Research Programmes in support of the Strategic Energy Technology (SET) plan pool and integrate activities and resources, combining national and Community sources of funding and maximizing complementarities and synergies. The EERA Joint Programmes constitute strategic, permanent collaborations between major research organizations and institutes forming a virtual centre of excellence. In response to the EU’s SET-PLAN, the Joint Programmes implement the need for better coordination among Member States, maximizing synergies and identifying priorities for future funding. In 2009, the first four EERA JPs have been prepared, after their approval by the EERA Executive Committee and launched in the occasion of the SET Plan Event held in Madrid in June 2010: Photovoltaic, Wind, Geothermal, and Smart Grids. In the occasion of the SET Plan Event held in Brussels in November 2010, the following JPs have been launched: Bio Energy, Carbon Capture and Storage, and Materials for Nuclear. Finally, during the SET Plan Conference in Warsaw in November 2011, the following JPs were officially launched: AMPEA (Advanced Materials and Processes for Energy Application), Concentrated Solar Power, Energy Storage, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen, Ocean Energy and Smart Cities. All the JPs are open to research organizations with a public mission, industries may participate as associate to a participant; should you be interested into joining a JP, make contact with the responsible person mentioned in the relevant JP page.
