Nine regional knowledge sharing workshops are being organised by the Grid+Storage project, each covering smart transmission and distribution grids, and integration of energy storage solutions. 

The purpose is to foster networking and exchange of experiences between projects being carried out both at EU and national or regional levels. 

These workshops are organised in collaboration with the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus initiative.

WS9: Workshop 9 (Ireland, UK)

Owing to the large number of participants and the high level of interest in this topic, we have decided to start the conference 30 minutes earlier, to allow more time for discussion at the end.

The ninth and last Grid+Storage regional workshop will be held in London (United Kingdom) on  15 March 2016 with the support of the ERA-Net Smart Grid Plus initiative.

This ninth workshop, addressing Ireland and UK is a unique opportunity to interact with network operators and energy storage stakeholders about the scope and contents of the future Research and Innovation roadmap about energy storage integration in the future electricity networks.

All stakeholders involved in R&I activities about smart grids and energy storage integration in the power system are invited to attend this workshop. National R&I projects representatives will be invited to join a labelling process where the European added value of their activities will be identified jointly by the ERA-Net Smart Grid Plus and Grid+Storage teams.

Several smart grids and energy storage projects from ireland and UK will be presented. 

Three interactive sessions will be held to discuss with the audience and with ENTSO-E, EDSO and EASE representatives about the lessons learnt by the projects presented and the future research and innovation topics to better integrate energy storage into the power system.


The workshop will be held at:

The Royal Academy of Engineering
3 Carlton House Terrace
United Kingdom

The Royal Academy of Engineering is located here. To reach the venue, you will need to take the London underground to either Piccadilly Circus or Charing Cross stations and then walk towards St James’ Park.
