The present project provides the necessary support to the EEGI Team gathering, in a structured and organised way, a team of top level players (research centres, SMEs, universities, in close coordination with ENTSO-e and EDSO for SG) to design in a coordinated way with both TSOs and DSOs a set of accompanying activities to make sure that the EEGI will pass through the critical 2012-2014 period (preparation of FP8, initial operation of ACER, increased specification duties of the network operators) when dealing with the most complex electricity system in the world and to address the five remaining critical issues (costs, benefits, KPIs, knowledge sharing and financing) in involving all the stakeholders, to ensure the rational, fluid and stable EEGI workflow, as to reach safely the 2020 European goals. The main contribution of IIT team is the leadership of work package 4 on replication and scalability of the projects on smart grids.
