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 believes that the Clean Energy Package is a real opportunity for DSOs to contribute to and successfully meet the challenges of a flexible, decentralised and highly digitised energy system – particularly as this transition is mostly affecting distribution grids at local level. As the inter-institutional debates on the Electricity Market Design are entering the trilogue phase, we are presenting our views on the most important points in the Electricity Directive and Regulation.

The KORRR methodology proposal, following the implementation of Guideline System Operation (GL SO) article 40.61, was submitted by all TSOs to all NRAs for approval on 14 March 2018. The KORRR preparation process is clarified in the figure below, with the current stage of the process highlighted in green colour. The EU associations representing DSOs – CEDEC, EDSO for smart grids, eurelectric and GEODE – are convinced that the KORRR methodology proposal still contains several parts that conflict with EU legislation and risk the benefit of the system as a whole. We have requested the NRAs to consider the legal consistency and reasonability of the proposed KORRR methodology.
