Synergies and Complementarities of European and International Initiatives Towards Energy Transition

This document proposes an analysis of the key organisations that act on a daily basis to research priorities that allow a deep transformation of our energy system, informing public authorities who can make the transformation happen on where to prioritise funding and putting such recommendations into practice with research and development programmes.

White Paper: Holistic architectures for future power systems

A cost effective and secure transition to lower carbon electricity system will require fundamental transformation of the power system control from a traditional centralised to a decentralised paradigm. This fundamental change will require development of novel architectures that can reliably meet the needs of the emerging power system. One of the key tasks associated with the new emerging architectures is to enhance the controllability associated with future power system operation in order to enhance the infrastructure utilisation while cost-effectively managing security and resilience.

In this context, this White Paper sets out the holistic architecture vision that should inform future demonstration projects that would enable large-scale rollout of the new control paradigms.

Coverage analysis of the present roadmap (2017-2026)

The 10-year RD&I roadmap will be updated by 2020 to define the RD&I activities planned for the period 2021-2030. In this aim, a thorough assessment of recent and ongoing RD&I projects contributing to the activities planned within the roadmap, needed to be done. This is the purpose of the “monitoring activity” carried out by the INTENSYS4EU support team.

The objective of the monitoring activity is two-fold:

  1. To analyse and to disseminate results from RD&I projects being in the scope of the ETIP SNET towards the energy community;
  2. To measure the coverage degree of each RD&I item of the roadmap and decide which RD&I activities deserve to be maintained, and which are sufficiently well covered by results of recent and ongoing projects and could consequently be removed (“gap analysis”).

The first sub-objective of the monitoring activity focusing on the analysis and dissemination of RD&I projects’ results lying in the ETIP SNET scope has been published by the end of 2018.

The present report contributes to the second sub-objective of the monitoring activity by analysing in detail the degree of coverage of each RD&I item of the 10-year RD&I roadmap covering 2017-26.

ETIP SNET’s reply to Public Consultation – October 2018

On July 17, 2018, the European Commission launched a public consultation on the “Future climate and energy policy – a Strategy for long-term EU greenhouse gas emissions reductions.” This document covers the ETIP SNET’s view on the types of transformations required, level of ambition and key actions to achieve it.

Presentation of Recent and Ongoing R&I Projects in the Scope of the ETIP SNET

The 10-year R&I roadmap will be updated by 2020 to define the R&I activities planned for the period 2021-2030. In order to do this, a thorough assessment of recent and ongoing R&I projects contributing to the activities planned within the roadmap is to be done. This is the purpose of the “monitoring activity” carried out by ETIP SNET.

The present report contributes to the monitoring activity by analysing and disseminating R&I projects’ results lying in the ETIP SNET scope. It has been elaborated following a survey conducted towards 250+ projects, amongst which 121 projects have contributed: 43 of them are co-funded by FP7 or Horizon 2020 and 78 are funded through other instruments, in general at national or regional level.

Digitalization of the Energy System and Customer Participation

The objective of the technical report “Digitalization of the Energy System and Customer Participation” is to address the use and impact of Information and Communication Technologies as a pervasive tool along the entire value chain of the power generation, transportation and use, and mainly on enabling customer participation.

The summary document presents the main conclusions and recommendations, drawn from the technical paper, to energy stakeholders that may be less concerned with the technical specifications mentioned in the former.

ETIP SNET Position on Missions for Horizon Europe

The current EU proposed Missions for Horizon Europe do not include Energy. This omission creates a risk of not prioritising future research needed to meet the Paris agreement targets. We are asking the members of the Council and the European Parliament to include Energy and Decarbonisation among the themes of the first missions that will be adopted at the end 2018-early 2019.

ETIP SNET VISION 2050 – Integrating Smart Networks for the Energy Transition: Serving Society and Protecting the Environment

The ETIP SNET Vision for 2050 is:

A low-carbon, secure, reliable, resilient, accessible, cost-efficient, and market-based pan-European integrated energy system supplying the whole economy and paving the way for a fully CO2-neutral and circular economy by the year 2050, while maintaining and extending global industrial leadership in energy systems during the energy transition.

ETIP SNET Implementation Plan 2017-2020

The ETIP SNET IP 17-20  aims at listing the short-term priorities for research and innovation (R&I) in relation with Smart Networks for the Energy Transition. The Implementation Plan is based upon the ETIP-SNET R&I roadmap 2017-2026 (published in January 2017) which specifies the long-term R&I targets for the evolution of the European energy system. You can download the ETIP SNET IP 17-20 and accompanying briefing here below:

10-year ETIP SNET R&I roadmap covering 2017-26

The new 10 year ETIP SNET Research & Innovation Roadmap 2017-26 provides a System view of the entire energy transition. It addresses a scope larger than smart electricity grids by encompassing interactions with the gas and heat networks and focuses on integration of all flexibility solutions into the power system, including energy storage technologies.
