The EERA Joint Programme on Smart Grids was officially launched at the SET Plan Conference in Madrid (3-4 June 2010). The JP, coordinated by RSE and ENEA from Italy by means of an extended cross-disciplinary cooperation involving many Research and Development (R&D) participants with different and complementary expertise and facilities, aims at addressing in a medium- to long-term research perspective, one of the most critical areas directly relating to the effective acceleration of smart grid development and deployment. On December 2013, the JP programme successfully launched ELECTRA the EC funded (FP7) Integrated Research Programme on Smart Grids technologies.
The EERA JP on Smart Grids consists of the following five sub-programmes (SP):
- SP1 - Network Operation
- SP2 - Energy Management
- SP3 - Control System Interoperability
- SP4 - Electrical Storage Technologies
- SP5 - Transmission Network
