NOBEL GRID solutions in the 6th InnoGrid2020+


On 26th-27th June, NOBEL GRID exhibited its smart energy solutions in the 6th Annual Conference InnoGrid2020+ in Brussels organised by organised the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and the European Distribution System Operators for Smart Grids (EDSO), which focused on the arising network of networks.

This year the InnoGrid2020+ focused on the arising network of networks where power grids and transport, telecom and IT, digital and physical link up in an unprecedented manner in order to face the European energy transition.

The conference gathered more than 30 high-level representatives like Vice-President of the European Commission for Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič, MEP Kaja Kallas, EC Digital Single Market Deputy Head of Cabinet Kamila Kloc, ACER Director Alberto Pototschnig, Jean-Michel Glachant from the FSR, Michael Walsh from Smart Wires, EDSO Chair João Torres and ENTSO-E President Peder Andreasen.

Finnova Foundation, as partner of NOBEL GRID, presented the main innovations and smart energy solutions of the project in the networking exhibition of InnoGrid2020+, where more than 20 European R&D projects were exhibited.

“Smart Energy gives people more control over the way citizens and private sector use energy so NOBEL GRID works on smart energy solutions that provides better quality of life, promoting active participation of final consumers and fostering European competitiveness in the sector”, explained Lola Alacreu coordinator of NOBEL GRID.

In this regarding, the TSOs and DSOs agreed the importance of “putting the consumers in the centre of the new energy system” as pointed out Peder Andreasen, President of ENTSO.

“TSOs (Transmission System Operators) and DSOs (Distribution System Operators) can reach together the challenge of  the energy transition and become leaders within the European Union”, added Christian Buchel, Vice-Chair of EDSO for Smart Grids.

Those panellists debated also about regulations, the active system management, the role of data hubs and the EU rules related to cybersecurity and privacy, as well as, the hard and soft technologies that can enable a smart and sustainable energy system.
