Workshop: Will a smarter grid lead to smarter end users - or vice versa

3. - 4. June 2015
Oslo, NO

The workshop will focus on the potential benefits of smart grids for end-users and society at large, with the goal of identifying novel approaches and critical aspects for realising this potential as well as core R&D needs on this topic and similar areas that need attention.


Experts' Group on R&D Priority-Setting and Evaluation

Content Description

Examples of end user-applications, consumer segmentation and engagement schemes, and business models will be presented to illustrate state-of-the-art and examples of emerging international "best practice". Achieving the vision of smartening the grid between now and 2050 requires governments, research organisations, industry, the financial sector, consumer advocates, international organisations and other power sector stakeholders to work together.


Target Audience

In addition to EGRD national experts, we are seeking input from RD&D decision makers, strategic planners, and program managers from industry concerned with intelligent end-use and distributed energy technologies related to electrical grids.
