Project duration: April 2016 to April 2019

The overall goal of the SET-UP project is to improve energy performance of the six partner regions thanks to enhanced policies on smart grids. On a medium to long term, better energy demand management will lead to reduced energy consumption and greater energy security, with connected socio-environmental and economic benefits.

SET-UP uses interregional exchange to build on regional competences on smart grids. It aims to improve policy instruments by identifying efficient energy management tools, with a specific focus on solutions to three main challenges to smart grid deployment:

  • empowering consumers
  • business models
  • investment possibilities for smart network infrastructure.
