The BRIDGE initiative, in which NOBEL GRID is member, has launched its website, where visitors could find for each BRIDGE working group (Data Management, Business Models, Regulations, Customer Engagement) their public outcomes.
BRIDGE, established in November 2015, is an initiative from the European Commission which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage Projects to create a structured view of transversal issues which are encountered in the demonstration projects and may constitute an obstacle to innovation.
The BRIDGE process implements continuous knowledge sharing amongst projects thus allowing them to deliver with a single voice conclusions and recommendations about the future exploitation of the project results, according to four main areas of interest addressed by four different Working Groups: Data Management, Business Models, Regulations and Customer Engagement.
NOBEL GRID participated in all those Working Groups. Besides, it leads Business Models WG and is rapporteur within Regulations WG.
Since 2016 BRIDGE has grown from 17 projects, involving 242 individual organisations in 23 countries, to 29 projects involving 332 organisations in 29 countries (five outside of the EU). The total EC contribution to all projects is €237 million.
BRIDGE gathers twice a year to share knowledge, experience, best practices as well as speak to the European Commission with one voice. The next meeting is scheduled on November 2017.
