HEROES project tackles PV-Grid Integration

The EU HEROES project removes barriers PV-Grid Integration in various countries

The European HEROES project in which seven European countries participate intents to remove barriers to the integration of solar power into the grid.

The kick-off will take place in The Hague on 19 and 20 September.

HEROES goals

EU HEROES stands for ‘EU routes for High Penetration of Solar PV into local networks‘.

The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Greece, Lithuania and Poland work together in EU HEROES.

The purpose of the project is to provide network administrators the opportunity to view a community-controlled solar system. To recognize business models and, when the energy law allows, participate in it.

Otto Bernsen (RVO): “The cooperating countries are facing different barriers. It will be an analysis at the technical, legal, economic and social-organizational level, very complete. Each country provides two projects for this purpose so we can compare and measure barriers structurally.”

When the problems have been identified, countries will work together finding the best solutions. The project will call for assistance from other substantive experts, also from outside the European Union.

During the project it will become clear why integration in one country works better than in the other country and where that depends.
