GRID4EU in IEEE Power & Energy magazine
An article on GRID4EU entitled "Show Me!: Large-Scale Smart Grid Demonstrations for European Distribution Networks" has been published in the January-February 2015 issue of the IEEE Power & Energy magazine. This article, written on the initiative of the Spanish Demo, provides an overview of GRID4EU approaches in all 6 workstreams of the project (Active Demand, DER Integration, Innovative power management of LV Grids, Innovative power management of MV Grids, Microgrids, Storage).
The article can be downloaded through the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
The abstract of the article "Show Me!: Large-Scale Smart Grid Demonstrations for European Distribution Networks" is the following:
"To reach the 2020 targets proposed by the European Commission (EC), several smart grid advances must still be implemented at the distribution grid level. The Grid+ project has described these advances in the latest European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) research and innovation (R&I) road map for smart grids. A good review of these research activities can be found at Grid4EU, which is a large-scale demonstration project that aims to test and validate most of the relevant smart grid technologies in distribution networks."
