Abstract
Extending the smart grid capabilities to fully exploit the available energy production of distributed energy resources, and managing the demands and services offered by electric transportation and domestic storage by maximizing their integration into the grid through active distribution sub-stations. Through better integration, more renewable energy sources and electric vehicles can then be used, increasing the uptake of these technologies without compromising grid reliability and improving customer acceptance of these key technologies required to reach the European 20-20-20 goals. Closing the innovation triangle, the education of the present and next generations of technicians, engineers, and business leaders has to be updated so they can become familiar with the planning, operation, and maintenance of the new devices and services envisioned in this project.
