In summary

This report presents the latest analyses and insights from the most comprehensive database of smart grid projects across the European Union (EU) Member States. This rolling review, carried out on a periodical basis by the European Commission Directorate-General Joint Research Centre (JRC) - in tight cooperation with the Directorate-General for Energy - builds upon the previous two smart grid project inventorying exercises published since 2011a.

This study goes hand in hand with brand new interactive visualisation tools allowing the user to generate customisable maps, graphs and charts to track progress on smart grid projects realised in the EU Member States, plus UK, Switzerland and Norway.
