ETIP SNET Implementation Plan: Setting Europe’s research priorities for a smarter Energy Transition

ETIP SNET presented its Implementation Plan (IP) 2017-2020 on 5th October 2017 during European Utility Week 2017 in Amsterdam. The IP is the result of a long and wide-ranging consultation process.

Over the last year, more than 200 ETIP SNET members, through various working groups, took part in the IP’s elaboration. In a second review phase, the paper also gathered nearly 70 responses from all stakeholders of the energy system via an online public consultation. This makes it a widely recognised report by all the actors of the energy transition.

The following four key priorities, which R&I projects, should focus on in the future are identified via 39 different “topics”:

  1. High-Renewable Energy Sources (RES) And Empowered End-User Energy System: Governance and Market Design.
  2. Digitalisation of the Energy System
  3. Integrated Grid with improved interfaces between Energy System Components
  4. Improved components of the Energy System.
