STARGRID Workshop in Milan

6 November, 2013 by Ioulia Papaioannou

30 October, 2013. In Milan, Italy, RSE organised a national workshop on Smart Grids and related technical regulations under the patronage of the Italian standardization body in the electrotechnical field CEI, Comitato Elettrotecnico Italiano.

Within STARGRID initiatives related to the Work Package 4 “Analysis of Industry opinion”, a national Workshop on the topic “Smart Grid and Technical Standards” was held in Milan, Italy.
The transformation of the energy system into the Smart Grid paradigm is posing crucial problems to the concerned industry and urging technical regulations, which request both development of new standards and adaptations and revision of the already existing ones. The objective of the Workshop was to foster the discussion around this process and to gather the point of view of the industry representatives on the impact, requirements and gaps of the standards evolution.

Nearly 60 people registered to the event, covering the whole Smart Grid value chain: grid operators and utilities; manufacturers and operators of renewable, distributed energy resources and power electronics; automation system and components developers and producers; telecommunication engineers and operators; consumers associations; research developers and, of course, regulatory and standardization bodies representatives.
