Austrian Smart Grids pioneer regions for the implementation of Smart Grids

Intelligent integrated solutions are regarded as a key to developing energy supplies towards sustainability against the background of national and international efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, of integrating renewable energy sources further, of improving the efficiency of the energy system and of the desire for increased energy independence.

To push on the implementation of Smart Grids, following basics should be improved:

  • Development of preconditions for the optimal integration of renewable energies
  • Development of efficient technologies and concepts for the distribution of energy
  • Optimal design of interaction between man and technology

A key factor for the development of Smart Grids is the initiation of demonstration projects. These will supply real information about the interactions within the grid and are prerequisite for the implementation of first field tests.
