A SUPEERA - PANTERA Joint Workshop
The SUPEERA project, in partnership with the PANTERA project, is organising an event to discuss and bring forward developments in Smart Grid Technologies research. The event will take place in Split, Croatia (HR) and is part of a larger framework of pan-European events organised by SUPEERA to reach out to R&I communities in the "youngest" Member States of the European Union (the so-called EU-13). With this series of workshops, SUPEERA aims to further engage least participating countries in the SET Plan and the Clean Energy Transition, notably EU-13 countries, generally underrepresented in EU collaborative R&I efforts.
Croatia is an active member of the EU since 1st July 2013 and actively works in the success of the energy transition objectives to achieve the declared policies for achieving the low carbon economy. However, the following areas are still a concern in achieving carbon neutrality and we would like to address them in this workshop that brings together stakeholders in the field of smart grids, storage and local energy systems:
The event will take a hybrid format, allowing for participants to follow the workshop online were they not able to join in person. If you wish to join the workshop in Split, please register here.
