Report: Coverage analysis of the present ETIP SNET roadmap (2017-2026)

Following the “Presentation of recent and ongoing R&I projects in the scope of the ETIP SNET“, the platform  releases part 2 of its monitoring exercise which analyses in detail the degree of coverage of each RD&I item of the 10-year RD&I roadmap covering 2017-26.  

CONTEXT: ETIP SNET MONITORING ACTIVITY

The European Technology & Innovation Platform Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) is guiding Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) to support Europe’s energy transition. For that purpose, a 10-year RD&I roadmap covering 2017-262 was adopted in December 2016. It addressed not only smart electricity grids but also interactions with gas and heat networks and the integration of all flexibility solutions into energy systems, including energy storage and power conversion technologies. 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 20184 . 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.

STRUCTURE OF THE REPORT

The present report is structured as follows:

First an overview of the coverage assessment of the 10-year RD&I roadmap covering 2017- 26 is provided with statistics regarding:

– The allocation of the 121 projects monitored between the Transmission / Distribution activities;

– The representativity of the experts involved among the energy system;

– The main outputs of the coverage assessment activity. Then, the detailed coverage assessment for the Functional Objectives related to Transmission activities and the Distribution activities is presented.

Then, the detailed coverage assessment for the Functional Objectives related to Transmission activities and the Distribution activities is presented.
