Wind Of Change: European Grid Prepares For Massive Integration Of Renewables 0

TREC-Map-en-520The ancient city of Rome welcomed an important new initiative for the large-scale integration of grids and of renewables sources into Europe’s energy mix, with nearly 40 leading organisations from research, industry, utilities, transmission systems operators meeting in the city on the 30th of October to announce their united goal to find the BEST PATHS to deliver affordable, reliable power in Europe from “coast to coast”.

An ambitious research project which will be funded by the European Commission, BEST PATHS, will focus on the development of high-capacity transmission networks needed to meet Europe’s long-term energy goals and incorporation of renewable energy sources.

The project unites expert partners around five large-scale demonstration areas focused on ensuring increased network capacity and system flexibility – incorporating innovative transmission systems and industrial solutions to link offshore wind farms and improve the interconnections of the entire power grid.
