This report results from a request from Directorate-General for Energy (DG ENER) to start a data collection effort to develop a catalogue of Smart Grids projects in Europe and to carry out a qualitative analysis of their results. The analysis we carried out contributed to the drafting of the Commission Communication “Smart Grids: from innovation to deployment”, adopted in April 2011. This survey of Smart Grid projects in Europe brings together input and feedback from a variety of stakeholders through a cooperative and transparent process. The interim version of this study has been presented on many occasions at expert meetings, including the EU Task Force on Smart Grids and the European Electricity Grid Initiative. Their comments and observations have been carefully taken into consideration and, where possible, integrated into the analysis.
