Strategic Research Agenda 2035:
The goal of this new SmartGrids SRA 2035 consists in determining longer term research and innovation activities, necessary for electricity networks and intelligent electric systems by 2035 and contributing to the EU’s envisioned CO2 reduction of minimally 80% by 2050. Strategic Research Agenda

European ETP for Smart Grids – Vision and Strategy:
The European Technology Platform (ETP) SmartGrids was set up in 2005 to create a joint vision for the European networks of 2020 and beyond. The platform includes representatives from industry, transmission and distribution system operators, research bodies and regulators. It has identified clear objectives and proposes an ambitious strategy to make a reality of this vision for the benefits of Europe and its electricity customers. Vision and Strategy

Smart Grids Strategic Deployment Document 2010
The SmartGrids Strategic Deployment Document (SDD) has been produced by the Advisory Council in collaboration with the Member States Mirror Group. It builds on the SmartGrids Vision and Strategic Research Agenda and incorporates the intensive work and discussions within the four SmartGrids Working Groups and three General Assembly meetings. Strategic Deployment Document

Smart Grid Roadmap for Ireland:
This roadmap explores how a smart grid can be operational in Ireland by 2050 and examines the contribution this will make to the decarbonisation of the electricity supply. Smartgrid Roadmap

The European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI);
is one of the European Industrial Initiatives under the Strategic Energy Technologies Plan (SET-PLAN) and proposes a 9-year European research, development and demonstration (RD&D) programme to accelerate innovation and the development of the electricity networks of the future in Europe. The programme focuses on system innovation rather than on technology innovation, and addresses the challenge of integrating new technologies under real life working conditions and validating the results.
