Policy Messages on Upscaling of Smart Grid Research and Innovation

As part of the umbrella initiative “Public Support to Smart Grid Research and Innovation” (2017-2019), an interdisciplinary group of stakeholders from nine countries (Austria, Belgium, Germany, India, Korea, Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Sweden) have jointly explored and shared knowledge on different types of barriers to upscaling of smart grid research and innovation. The project, developed within the ISGAN Knowledge Transfer Platform, focused on the role of public sector institutions, in particular funding agencies, and on identifying solutions to overcome identified challenges. The results of the project have been summarized into “Policy Messages on Upscaling of Smart Grid solutions” for decision makers, especially relevant for stakeholders involved in developing policy and strategies related to public funding of smart grid research and innovation. These policy messages were produced in an interactive workshop on 30th of September 2019 in Montreux, Switzerland, in conjunction with the ISGAN ExCo18 Meeting.
