We, as European Commission’s in-house science service, perform independent research and support EU policy-making
on transformations towards smarter and interoperable electricity systems.

We study the power system as a multi-layer system composed of technical, economic and social layers. Our approach includes observation, simulation, testing and assessment activities as described in the columns below.
