Register now for ETIP SNET’s Western & South-eastern Regions’ Workshop in Paris

The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) in collaboration with Pôle MEDEE, Systematic and Think Smartgrids will host this year’s second regional workshop – covering the western and south-eastern region, on November 14-15 in Paris, France.

The Workshop will provide a unique opportunity to learn from Central  & Northern Region’s national Research & Innovation (R&I) projects and the chance to contribute to the identification of R&I gaps, challenges and priorities at Central/Northern Region and EU levels.

Are you a representative of: a university, a technology center, an energy utility, a distribution or transmission system operator, a technology provider, a funding authority, a ministry, a regulator, a national platform?

Are you active in the field of: Smart Grid Systems? Storage? Interfaces between electricity and heat, gas and transport? Flexible thermal and renewable generation? Digitization? Customer participation?

Are you interested in projects from: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Romania and Slovenia, as well as France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain & the United Kingdom?


You will have the chance to find out more about outstanding national projects including:

  • The INFORPV Project (Israel and Cyprus) develops a high accuracy PV production forecasting platform acting as a Distributed Energy Resources Management System, with a root mean square error (RMSE) accuracy of less than 5 % for single plants and less than 4.5 % at a regional level for both day-ahead and hour-ahead forecasts.
  • The StoreNet Project (Ireland) focuses on the design and demonstration of a virtual power plant based on distributed energy storage systems in low voltage distribution (residential) network. StoreNet is a community-scale trial run to test how the whole system can support the Irish grid as it incorporates more renewable energy resources.
  • The MefCO2 Project (EU) focuses on the production of green methanol as energy vector from captured CO2 and hydrogen produced using surplus renewable energy. The technology is being designed in a modular intermediate scale, with the aim of being able to adapt it to varying plant sizes and gas composition.
  • The FutureFlow Project (EU) aims at exploring new solutions for balancing the electricity system and managing flows in the European electricity network. The progressive consumers addressed by the FutureFlow project will be capable of increasing or reducing their consumption in a few seconds, and will in this way be performing functions that are predominantly carried out by traditional, fossil fuel-based, hydro or thermal power plants.

We are still looking for innovative projects with tangibles results particularly from Malta, Croatia or Bulgaria. If you would like to suggest a project or would like additional information, please send email If you would like to suggest a project, please send an e-mail to
