NTP SG Austria – Nationale Technologieplattform Smart Grids

NTP SG Austria

There are many existing opportunities for the Austrian industry in the area of Smart Grids (e.g. for component development, software systems, steering tools). To use these opportunities, a “National Technology Platform – Smart Grids Austria” was founded in May 2008 through national industry, network operators, and research stakeholders. The “National Technology Platform – Smart Grids Austria” will serve as competent national discussion and implementation partner for the European Technology Platform – Smart Grids. The main activities can be seen in achieving a common consensus of all partners on the thematic content and strategy of the platform, to create and install a joint management structure, to define thematic focus areas for market aspects, to coordinate R&D as well as demonstration activities, as well as relevant framework conditions for Smart Grids.

The Austrian industry has economic opportunities to become a major player in the growing Smart Grid market. To be able to use this opportunities most efficiently, optimal framework conditions are necessary. The overall goal is to be a technological leader in some of the business cases and create high qualified jobs in the energy and communication industry. (smartgrids.at)
