ERIGrid 2.0

The ERIGrid 2.0 (European Research Infrastructure supporting Smart Grid and Smart Energy Systems Research, Technology Development, Validation and Roll Out – Second Edition) project expands the research services and tools of research infrastructures for validating smart energy networks with the electric power grid as the main backbone. Committed to the holistic and cyber-physical systems-based validation approach, ERIGrid 2.0 will foster system-level support and education for industrial and academic researchers in power and energy systems research and technology development.

ERIGrid 2.0 project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 funding programme (April 2020 – September 2024). ERIGrid 2.0 invites all interested engineers involved in the domains of power system testing, smart grids and energy systems to receive free funding to access the best laboratories of Europe and perform their experimental research. There are two kinds of lab access services available in ERIGrid 2.0:

  • Free access to 21 Physical Labs
  • Free access to 9 Virtual facilities
