Three members of the UNITED-GRID team attended the H2020 Smart Grids and Storage projects clustering workshop in Brussels on October 2nd.
The workshop was organized and hosted by Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), European Commission, and 26 different H2020 projects took part. The purpose of the meeting was to identify synergies, strengthen collaborations between projects and to avoid any unnecessary duplication of the work in different projects. Another intention was of course to discuss and agree on common actions.
UNITED-GRID presented its concept, impacts and expected achievement in the project presentation session.
The three representatives from UNITED-GRID then participated in three parallel workshops: Technologies, tools and models for electricity grids, Sector coupling and Business models for exploitation.
– It was a good event where we met with not only representatives from INEA/EC but also with representatives from other projects with which UNITED-GRID can collaborate in our activities. We have initially identified RESOLVD and MAGNITUDE as the projects which are closest in scope with UNITED-GRID, says project coordinator Tuan Le, at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.
Parts of the UNITED-GRID team met in Paris on March 5th to discuss exploitable results of the project.
