A joint and coordinated effort of all stakeholders is essential to advance energy research and innovation in Europe. With the goal to review the status of stakeholder cooperation in energy R&I in Europe, the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) organises a policy event on 3 May, 2017, in Brussels (BE).
This event will be the opportunity for the stakeholders in the energy R&I community to discuss their views on cooperation and how to achieve the objectives of the Integrated SET-Plan and the innovation goals set out in the European Commission’s 2016 “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package to support a more competitive, modern and cleaner energy system.

With the complementary technical skills and state-of-the art measuring and testing equipment available at EnergyVille and the several ENGIE Labs, this cooperation is an important step towards developing new and innovative solutions for the energy market.

Celebrating its 75th birthday in 2017, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland wishes to build further creative collaboration with partners and clients. Having identified five topics that guide their work in the long term, VTT is now looking for forward-thinking companies to host innovation challenges around these topics.
One of the topics is dedicated to climate and energy transition: “Climate action – Clean energy for the future”. VTT fosters novel technologies and digitalisation as opportunities to support systemic energy transformation.

With the goal to develop, deploy and evaluate advanced tools and ICT services for distribution system operators (DSOs) and electric cooperatives, the Nobel Grid project aims to facilitate active consumer involvement and market flexibility.
The project considers new demand response schemas and new business models for aggregators, energy service companies and the integration of distributed renewable energy production.
Recently Nobel Grid has publicised its latest developments by making all public reports available online. These comprise a wide range of crucial topics:
- Requirements and use cases definition in Nobel Grid
- Energy policies and market
- Smart grid architecture
- Unbundled smart meter concept and smart home infrastructure developed in Nobel Grid
- Tools developed in the project for the distribution grid, aggregators and the end user
The deliverables are available on the Nobel Grid website.
Electrification, rise of renewables and new technologies – supported by more data and IT systems, are transforming the power system. Join DNV GL each week for discussions on these changes with guests from around the industry.
Taking place in Bad Staffelstein (DE) on 8-10 March, 2017, the 32nd Symposium Photovoltaic Solar Energy will gather experts in the field to cover crucial PV and renewable energy related topics, such as
- PV system technology
- Market development
- Sector coupling power and heat
- Grid integration
- PV installation
- Energy meteorology / simulation
- Digitalisation of the energy industry: Opportunities and risks
- Discussion on the Climate Change Conference in Paris
Besides panel discussions, the event will also include poster presentations. Further information is available here.
