Smart grids

EDSO for Smart Grids gathers leading European distribution system operators (DSOs) for electricity, cooperating to bring smart grids from vision to reality in Europe and is focused on guiding EU RD&D, policy and member state regulation to support this development.

Smart grids are a prerequisite to achieving the EU’s ambitious energy and climate objectives to 2020 and beyond – decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing energy efficiency and the strongest driver of all, increasing the share of renewable energy connected to our networks.

EDSO and its members are committed to taking on this huge challenge, while at the same time ensuring the reliability of Europe’s electricity supply to consumers and enabling them to take a more active part in our energy system.

EDSO is the key-interface between Europe’s DSOs and the European institutions, promoting the development and large-scale testing of smart grid models and technologies in real-life situations, new market designs and regulation.

Our brochure  and “Why smart grids?” section of the website lay out in more detail these challenges and the solutions that smart grids offer.

EDSO welcomes the opportunity to comment on the updated Energy Storage Technology Development Roadmap prepared by EASE and EERA. Electricity storage is a key technology that can be used by DSOs to defer grid expansion by making more efficient use of the existing capacity and improving the reliability, quality and affordability of the existing local distribution service.

The European associations representing distribution system operators (DSOs), CEDEC, EDSO for Smart Grids and GEODE and the association of automotive and industrial battery manufacturers, EUROBAT call on the EU institutions to deliver a clear regulatory framework incorporating storage as a key instrument towards achieving the Energy Union. Battery energy storage is an important grid management solution that can help boost the robustness of Europe’s electricity grids. To make use of this opportunity, network operators should be allowed to own and operate batteries for the purposes of grid balancing and operation.

As result of the INCREASE project a "Hands-on-manual for DSOs" has been created. Future decentralized electricity systems will pose additional challenges for existing market actors, including DSOs. New technologies, innovations and business models are being tested in a variety of EU funded projects.
