  • D8.4 Final Dissemination Report Delivered 22/6/2017 This is a public report and can be downloaded. This report documents the accumulated dissimination activities in the project. The Smart Rural Grid project has aimed at developing an innovative Smart Grid approach which targets the very end part of the electric system. The present conditions of the distribution networks demand new thinking. The need for substantial improvements has since long been in a necessity. Increased efficiency, quality and network resilience are important for all grids. But the situation for many rural grids, with its long radials, lack of redundant supply and high maintenance costs are especially vulnerable. As energy consumers turn prosumers the operations of rural grids are faced with yet other challenges. Concurrently Smart Grid technologies offer new ways of addressing these and other issues.
  • D8.5 Preliminary Exploitation Plan Delivered 14/2/2015 Confidential. This report is the final deliverable from task T8.6 in WP8. It follows deliverable “D8.3 Preliminary Exploitation Plan” which was completed in month 25 of the project. This report is meant to complement deliverable D8.3, not replace it. The preliminary exploitation plan reported on the specific business objectives that each consortium member had defined for the R&D results and experience generated in the project. This project reports on how the plans have been followed and will be pursued onwards.  By following the partner’s closely and based on surveys conducted it is interesting to note that all project members have been faithful to their ambition and that very tangible steps have been made to capitalize on the findings generated in the project. The original ambitions have been strengthened during the project. All partners have been able to create a sizeable overlap between their R&D effort and sound business development. This has resulted in new market openings, spin-outs from basic operations and new projects taking advantage of what was achieved in the Smart Rural Grid project. Most partners have sharpened the scope of its marketing.
