Cover page EEF paperEDSO for Smart Grids agrees with the European Investment Bank (EIB) that electricity networks will play an increasingly important role towards the future, realising a low carbon economy. As the European Commission estimates, the total investments needed in the EU distribution grids amount to €400 billion for the ten years to come, and so a clear strategy is needed to develop and deploy smart grids.

4.1. General energy and economic context

4.2. Renewable energy

4.3. Energy efficiency

4.4. Security of supply

4.7. RDI
