The project SOLID-DER, a Coordination Action, will assess the barriers for further integration of DER, overcome both the lack of awareness of benefits of DER solutions and fragmentation in EU R&D results by consolidating all European DER research activities and report on is common findings. In particular awareness of DER solutions and benefits will be raised in the new Member States, thereby addressing their specific issues and barriers and incorporate them in the existing EU DER integration R&D community. The key objectives of the SOLID-DER project are:
• Identify, evaluate and assess the critical developments, innovations and findings in EU R&D on large-scale integration of DER.
• Provide and assess costs/benefits and the application of DER supply solutions in different Member States and recommend on applicable concepts of business models for DER and pro-active networks securing viable business and operation of networks in the future.
• Raising the awareness of benefits of DER in general and organising dissemination and transfer of knowledge from EU-15 R&D community and stakeholders towards the stakeholders in the New Member States (NMS).
