About a third of grids in Europe are 40 years old. It is key to prepare them for the distributed and intermittent generation from renewable sources, and for ensuring energy efficiency. For this reason, the European Commission expects about €584bn of investment in Europe’s electricity grid between 2020 and 2030, and among this €170bn would go to digitalisation.

The European Commission’s policy framework (i.e. Clean Energy Package, FiT for 55) seeks to decarbonise the energy system, encouraging the electrification of heat and transport, as well as the connection of more clean but intermittent generation. Electricity markets and smart grid digitalization should proceed very fast to enable the fulfillment of these targets, incentivizing energy consumers and maximizing the use of assets from different energy consumption sectors (i.e.
