// Smart Grids: Lessons Communities Can Learn from Pilot Projects

European researchers draft guide, build simulation tool for municipalities

Decentralized, decarbonized power grids managed by smart systems are sure to figure prominently in the future. A three-year European research venture, concluded in mid-2019, assessed what lessons districts, cities and towns can learn from pilot projects already underway. These researchers developed a simulation tool and published their results in a free guide. Germany’s Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the European Institute for Energy Research EIFER teamed up with 13 partners from Europe in this multinational study coordinated by the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT). The European Union funded it as part of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. The free English guide and simulation model are available for free at: reflex-smartgrid.eu.
