To enhance impacts of the project results, the UNITED-GRID project has involved a Situation Analysis Team. The team consists of senior members who are well connected on both European and global level.
The team’s guidance gives the coordinator a possibility to align research, development and innovation activities in an ever-changing world, rendering in results that are more relevant to the European and global community.
Tomas Kåberger is professor at Chalmers University of Technology and an experienced director, executive board chairman and senior advisor.
Karin Widegren is senior advisor specialised in European energy and climate policy, regulation and development of efficient energy markets. She leads the board of ISGAN (International Smart Grid Action Network).
Diego Pavía is chief executive officer of KIC InnoEnergy, which focuses on innovation and entrepreneurship in sustainable energy on the European market.
During a meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden, the project received valuable advice on how to make the results of the project even more adaptable to the market and the Distribution System Operators (DSO).
