Grids meet Renewables - Conference and Best Practice Fair

The Renewables Grid Initiative and WindEurope have the great pleasure to invite you to our joint event “Grids meet Renewables”. The energy sector is currently undergoing a major transition, one that will have a significant impact on citizens, consumers, industry and the environment. For this transition to meet societal expectations, technological and environmental requirements, a variety of energy industry players must come together and decide how best to navigate the changing energy landscape. Our event “Grids meet Renewables” will facilitate an open dialogue between the renewables and grid sectors.
