“ENTSO-E has set up an ecosystem of business oriented and innovative energy transition players. This new ENTSO-E Business Network for Innovation aims to build a bridge between the world of start-ups on the one hand, and the power industry and opinion leaders on the other”, explains Laurent Schmitt, ENTSO-E Secretary General. “The objective is to shorten the time from idea to market in Europe”, he adds.

Launched under ENTSO-E’s Research, Development and Innovation Committee, the network already gathers over a hundred partners across the field: members from research centers and universities, start-ups, energy service providers, manufacturers-integrators, consulting, software companies and power transmission experts.

The Business Network for Innovation organises webinars and Solutions Luncheons. The next webinars will tackle issues such as open data, storage, digital technology and AI in the power system. The first Solution Luncheon is planned in Brussels in February on HDVC electronics and dynamic line rating.
