EUDEEP (Smart Grid Project) (Italy)
From Open Energy Information
- The project brings together eight European energy utilities and aims at removing most of the technical and nontechnical barriers that prevent a massive deployment of distributed energy resources (DER) in Europe. In partnership with manufacturers, research organizations, professionals, national agencies and a bank, they implemented a demandpull rather than technologypush approach. This new approach provided three tentative "fasttracks options" to speed up the largescale implementation of DER in Europe, by defining three client portfolios in various market segments which could benefit from DER solutions, and by fostering the R&D required to adapt DER technologies to the demands of these segments.
