TÜV Rheinland: Experts discuss shared infrastructures for smart grids in Europe

Posted by TUV Rheinland Asia Pacific on Feb 1, 2016 10:03:28 AM

How can we work hand-in-hand with the telecommunications and energy sector to successfully further develop and operate smart grids (intelligent energy networks)? What possible scenarios in terms of a shared future are conceivable, what strategic barriers need to be overcome and how can the collaboration be launched successfully? These questions are the focus of this second Energise workshop held by TÜV Rheinland on 3rd and 4th March 2016 in Berlin. The workshop for high-level stakeholders from the European telecommunications and energy sector is part of the Energise study which has been conducted by TÜV Rheinland since the beginning of 2015 on behalf of the European Commission. It focuses on whether the EU states should use the existing infrastructures of telecommunications companies or whether new networks should be set up when expanding smart grids.
