Strategic consultations with
      regional stakeholders
                   Relevance at strategic/policy level
                       –    Technology alone is not enough: needs
                            of an integrated approach to technical,
                            commercial and regulatory aspects
                       –    Focused on delivery of added-value

                   Acknowledging the complex factors
                    inherent in :
                       –    Achieve successful technology transfer
                            from research to deployment
                       –    New factors created by a liberalized
                            market and regulatory frameworks

                   Regional and National programs
                    including «catalyst projects»
                    specially targeted
                       –    removing commercial or regulatory
                            barriers and

   International collaboration
  suitable for combining research efforts in common
research project, coordinated projects or test bed (*)
                           System architecture development
                            offers the opportunity of sharing
                            knowledge on:
                                –     quantification of DER benefits in
                                      different regions
                                –     the alternatives proposed by regional
                                      teams,
                                –     best practices, different ideas, projects
                                      being developed, etc.
                           Support and develop an
                            interoperability framework and
                            related standards in conjunction
                            with international standards
                            organizations.
                           Collaboration in enabling
                            technologies and new energy
                            services, such as remote control of
                            appliances responding to inputs like
                            prices or frequency, with close ties
                            to industry.

                             Final remarks
            There is good agreement on the
             direction to follow.
            It will take time, but actors in running
             initiatives have already proven to
             have the technical ability.
            To find the human & financial
             resources:
              – Public Authorities and Regulators
                should create an environment which
                supports innovation.
              – Coordination and collaboration need
                to be stepped up, at all levels. Mutual
                topics for international collaboration
                should be reinforced and jointly
                exploited.
              – Smart Energy Networks should be
                made more attractive for students and
                young researchers at national and
                international levels.
