18 of Europe's top research institutions have joined forces in order to pool together their know-how and improve research infrastructures within the smart grid sector. The EU-funded ERIGrid project (European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid Systems Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out) aims to develop an integrated research infrastructure for smart grid systems. Intelligent power networks are urgently required to integrate the growing number of distributed energy sources and generators into our energy system. Researchers get assisted and free-of-charge access to the ERIGrid research infrastructure facilities in Europe through the provision of 21 different laboratories provided by the ERIGrid partners.
Project duration: 1 November 2015 - 30 April 2020
