Special session in Powertech2017 conference for NOBEL GRID & WISEGRID projects: Smart energy for European consumers
These are both H2020 projects, with a total budget of EUR 30 million, in the area of smart grids and storage. They provide a set of solutions, technologies and business models which increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid and provide cleaner and more affordable energy for European citizens.
They do so through an enhanced use of storage technologies and electro-mobility and a highly increased share of RES. NOBEL GRID and WISEGRID focus on players such as electric cooperatives or public institutions – e.g. municipalities – since it has been demonstrated that these organisations are the most effective for tackling the transition to energy democracy.
