At the end of 2018, EU legislators have finalised the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package. With this new legislative framework, project's like WiseGRID prove to have even more relevance in today’s energy landscape with its aim to provide a set of solutions and technologies to increase the smartness, stability and security of an open, consumer-centric European energy grid.
This report, published by the European Commission, lists the numerous benefits the new EU rules will provide, from different angles – environmental, economic, security of supply, consumer, international, and from a longer time scale. The key message is that these changes are good for the planet, good for growth and jobs, and good for consumers. It is no coincidence that we called it the 'Clean energy for all Europeans' package. In the face of the 21st century’s global energy challenges, the EU is leading the clean energy transition: striving for a more secure, competitive and sustainable energy system which will address the existential challenge of our time - climate change. By setting ambitious energy and climate targets for 2030, the EU is giving a clear sense of direction; in addition to these targets, it provides a stable legal framework to foster the necessary investment. But this is not the end of the road: with its 2050 long-term climate neutrality strategy, the EU is also looking further ahead than 2030, and setting the foundations for what a cleaner planet will look like by the middle of the century and beyond.

WiseGRID is attending the European Utility Week in Paris. Join us there!
The European Utility Week is a platform for achieving a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe. It hosts the environment for all key players in the smart energy ecosystem to come together and discuss European strategy to achieve a smooth transition towards a low carbon energy supply.
The 3-day programme will see an energy trilemma of security, equity and sustainability across an end-to-end European energy experience.Read more »
The Romanian Energy Center Association (CRE) has successfully organised the 10th Consortium Meeting of the Horizon 2020 European Project "WiseGRID - Wide scale demonstration of Integrated Solutions and business models for European smart GRID", coordinated by the Spanish Group ETRA, on 22nd – 23rd October 2019 in Sinaia, Romania. WiseGRID will deliver to the European Commission, project partners and stakeholders, a set of solutions and technologies for developing intelligence, increasing the stability and security of European electricity networks, through various methods including energy storage technologies, the widespread use of electric vehicles and integration of a share of at least 50% of energy from renewable sources (RES). The project started on November 1st, 2016 and will lasts for 42 months.Read more »
