The annual report summarises RGI's most important activities and main achievements of the previous year. 2015 was the first year that an annual report was published.
2018 has been an exciting year for RGI with new opportunities and new discussions. We visited China on our 'Energy Regions in Transition' tour and started a third 'Implementing RGI Declarations' project in Italy. We also broadened our cooperation, collaborating with WindEurope for our conference 'Grids meet Renewables' and launching a new project on collaborative grid planning. Last, but certainly not least, we gained two new NGO Members: Transport & Environment and ZERO. Find out what else made this year so special in our Annual Report 2018.
In the 2017 Annual Report, you can read about RGI’s activities on the future electricity system, our new programme “Implementing RGI Declarations”, in which the successful European collaboration between TSOs and NGOs is transferred into more national and local projects, our ‘Good Practice of the Year’ award whose fifth round we are just about to finalise, and many more of our acitivities. Enjoy the read!
In this report, you can read about RGI’s work in 2016 and our effort to bring together innovators who are redefining the way we think about grids and the opportunities connected to them. Our highlights include kicking off our work on future electricity system scenarios with high shares of renewables, successfully concluding the EU-funded INSPIRE-Grid project, establishing the ‘Good Practice of the Year’ award as a part of the Energy Infrastructure Forum, continuing our successful learning journeys to ‘Energy Regions in Transition’ and of course our European Grid Conference, at which we discussed the social dimension of grid investment.
2015 has been an important year both for the energy sector and for RGI. We strengthened ties with old friends by collaborating with ENTSO-E for our 5th European Grid Conference and 2nd Good Practice Award Ceremony; we explored new territory and gained new friends during a trip to California that we organised for a high-level delegation from Europe; we finished some of our projects, like BESTGRID, and tapped into new fields, like the digitalisation of the electricity sector.
