Strategic Research Agenda 2035 (2012)
The SRA 2035 provided key input to the EU’s 7th research framework programme (FP7), and is continuing to do the same for its successor, Horizon 2020, and other smart grid research, development and demonstration initiatives both on national and European levels, with a view to advancing the smart grids based European energy system.
Energy retailers perspective on the deployment of Smart Grids in Europe (2011) – Working document
This abstract provides an insight into the White Paper written by members of the Working Group Demand and Metering. It details the various aspects of the retailers’ position and the role that they can effectively play in the central functionalities enabled by the smart grid.

Strategic Deployment Document for Europe’s electricity networks of the future (2010)
At the end of 2008, based on the contributions and discussions between actors in the EU member states, the first draft of this Strategic Deployment Document (SDD) was released, under the Chairmanship of Pier Nabuurs CEO of N.V. KEMA. In 2010, this document was formally finalised, and describes the priorities for the deployment of innovation in the electricity networks and the benefits that such innovation will deliver for all stakeholders. It also provides a timeline for deployment.
Strategic Research Agenda (2007)
In its early days, ETP SmartGrids focused its efforts on the development of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). The SRA is a reference and strategic document that consolidates the views of stakeholders on research priorities for smart grid development in Europe.
Together with the Vision paper, it describes the main areas to be investigated, technical and non-technical, in the short-medium term in Europe. The publishing of the SRA in 2007 has inspired several research and development programs within the EU and national institutions.
Vision and Strategy for European Electricity Networks of the Future (2006)
European electricity networks have provided the vital links between electricity producers and consumers with great success for many decades. The fundamental architecture of these networks has been developed to meet the needs of large, predominantly carbon-based generation technologies, located remotely from demand centres. The energy challenges that Europe is now facing are changing the electricity generation landscape.
