ETIP “Smart Energy Networks for the Energy Transition”: Joint Industry Input for 3rd Governing Board Meeting

Published: 13 September 2016

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

In view of the next ETIP-SNET Governance Board meeting on 16 September 2016, the undersigning organisations would like to provide the following joint comments and suggestions:

We generally welcome the creation of the new European Technology and Innovation Platform “Smart Networks for the Energy Transition” and appreciate its holistic, integrated systems view on this transition and the new market design to come. We are convinced that Europe can successfully manage its future energy system with ever more renewables, more flexibility at all levels and empowered consumers and at the same time become the leading supplier of know- how and technologies required for such a transformation.

To be smooth, reliable and resilient, this energy transition requires a strong interplay between different stakeholders, in particular technology manufacturers and power system operators. Therefore, we thank the Commission for the inclusive composition of the new Governing Board that now involves technology manufacturers throughout the entire energy system.
