WS6: Workshop 6 (Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia)

The sixth Grid+Storage regional workshop will be held in Vienna (Austria) on  24 February 2016 with the support of the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus initiative.

This sixth workshop, addressing Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, is a unique opportunity to interact with network operators and energy storage stakeholders about the scope and contents of the future Research and Innovation roadmap about energy storage integration in the future electricity networks.

All stakeholders involved in R&I activities about smart grids and energy storage integration in the power system are invited to attend this workshop. National R&I projects representatives will be invited to join a labelling process where the European added value of their activities will be identified jointly by the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus and Grid+Storage teams.

Three other regional workshops will be organized throughout Europe until March 2016, in order to share knowledge and agree about the future Research and Innovation activities needed for the next ten years.

Several smart grids and energy storage projects from Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia will be presented. 

Two interactive sessions will be held to discuss with the audience and with ENTSO-E, EDSO and EASE representatives about the lessons learnt by the projects presented and the future research and innovation topics to better integrate energy storage into the power system.


The workshop will be held at the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit).
