Launch of the EEGI Implementation Plan 2014-2016

The EEGI Implementation Plan 2014-2016 is here!

The Implementation Plan 2014-2016 has been developed based on the new EEGI R&I Roadmap. It summarizes the priorities which projects launched in the period 2014-2016 should focus on regarding both transmission and distribution aspects.

Therefore, this document should be used as initial input to European Commission (EC), European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI), technology providers and other stakeholders.

The EEGI R&I Roadmap 2013-2022 was launched in the Innogrid2020+ Seminar.

The GRID+ support action has revised the on-going EEGI roadmap approved by Member States in June 2010.

The new document is an upgraded version of the R&I roadmap of the EEGI, which was first approved by the EC and Member States in June 2010.

It has been initiated since early 2012 within the GRID+ project activities in order to cover new R&I and knowledge needs in response to recent EU energy policy evolutions. The intense involvement of ENTSO-E and EDSO for SmartGrids, is to be highlighted.

It is divided into 4 main sections:

  • Climate change challenges
  • Upgraded system innovation activities
  • Expected outcomes and impacts
  • The EEGI R&I budget

The roadmap on transmission issues, the ENTSO-E Roadmap, was published in December 2012. The next implementation plan is foreseen to be released in Dec 2013 and focused on time period 2015-2017.

For the distribution side, an implementation plan describing the priorities for 2014-2016 has been developed based on the new roadmap.
