ELECTRA - European Liaison on Electricity Committed Towards long-term Research Activities for Smart Grids.
Acronym ELECTRA
Abstract The ELECTRA Integrated Research Programme on Smart Grids (ELECTRA) has been created by the partners of the EERA. Joint Programme on Smart Grids (JP SG) to reinforce and accelerate Europe’s medium to long term research cooperation.
Large_Description The ELECTRA Integrated Research Programme on Smart Grids (ELECTRA) has been created by the partners of the EERA Joint Programme on Smart Grids (JP SG) to reinforce and accelerate Europe’s medium to long term research cooperation.

ELECTRA’s joint research activity and collaborative support actions therefore build on an established track record of collaboration and engagement. Together, the JP SG and ELECTRA will establish significant coherence across national research efforts critical to the stable operation of the EU power system of 2020+. The EU energy strategy sets ambitious goals for the energy systems of the future that foresees a substantial increase in the share of renewable electricity production.

The whole-sale deployment of RES connected to the network at all voltage levels will require radically new approaches for real time control that can accommodate the coordinated operation of millions of devices, of various technologies, at many different scales and voltage levels, dispersed across EU grid. ELECTRA addresses this challenge, establishing proofs of concept that utilise flexibility from across traditional boundaries in a holistic fashion.

The establishment of an IRP in Smart Grids is critical to EU energy and research ambitions, given the scale of the challenge and its dependence on cross-stakeholder cooperation. ELECTRA has therefore dedicated work packages to provide quality collaborative support actions. These build on existing efforts established through EERA, but will see significant escalation through the funding of coordination and collaboration amongst EU leading research infrastructures, researcher Exchange across EU and internationally, and actions on international cooperation.

This approach has been agreed by the 21 partners spanning 16 countries, and has received official support from each of the 16 national funding agencies, ENTSOE, EDSO4SG, ETP SG, as well as a number of international organisations.
