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.

Trilogues: Overregulation may cripple new EU electricity distributors’ entity
EDSO chairman Christian Buchel argues on POLITICO that Europe’s fast-changing energy markets demand ‘agile and efficient’ electricity regulation and that co-legislators should not cripple the new EU DSO Entity with an initial over-regulation.
EDSO jointly with Eurelectric and GEODE publishes a side letter on EU-DSO entity
The recast of the Electricity Regulation will establish a new EU institution, called “EU DSO Entity”, to foster cooperation between Distribution System Operators (DSOs) who are taking centre stage in the energy transition. EDSO publishes jointly with Eurelectric and GEODE a joint side letter on this EU-DSO entity.
