ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap Public Consultation launched
The Research and Development (R&D) Roadmap outlines a methodology for achieving the European climate energy objectives defined in the European Union’s (EU) “20-20-20” targets and the European Commission’s Roadmap 2050. It lays the groundwork for the upcoming electricity highways, smart grids and for the change to a low-carbon electricity system.
Stakeholders are invited to provide comments on the strategic TSO R&D activities. This Roadmap has impacts and benefits not only for TSOs but also for society as a whole. Stakeholders are not limited to manufacturers, RES and generation sectors, distribution system operators, but also regulators, research institutes and other interested parties. By closely collaborating and sharing R&D investments, TSOs, partners and key stakeholders will be able to reach their key milestones and maximize results.
All comments on the draft ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap must be submitted via the ENTSO-E web consultation interface by Monday 15 October 2012.
Further information on the procedure to submit comments can be accessed here. All comments will be published when the web-based consultation has ended. ENTSO-E will review each comment and consider how and where improvements to the ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap may be made.
The release of the ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap 2013-2022 is scheduled for December 2012
EEGI Roadmap public consultation
In parallel to the ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap, the European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) Roadmap will be in public consultation from 18 September until 15 October, to which stakeholders are also welcome to provide comments. As of 18 September the EEGI Roadmap public consultation may be viewed on the Grid+ website.
The mission of EEGI is creating an adequate European grid to achieve the European energy policy goals. It is one of the European Industrial Initiatives under the Strategic Energy Technology Plan. The EEGI covers both transmission and distribution R&D activities, in which ENTSO-E contributes to defining the transmission R&D part. The core TSO R&D activities of clusters and functional objectives are defined in a consistent manner in both the ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap and the EEGI Roadmap. Therefore comments received on TSO R&D activities will be taken into account when considering improvements on both the ENTSO-E R&D Roadmap and the EEGI Roadmap.
