The Smart Rural Grid  project aims to develop the smart rural grid”. This was a bold statement 3 years ago. But now our ambition is close to be fulfilled. The project is about to prove how novel smart grid technologies and associated business concepts can transfer the incumbent utility to a modern enterprise positioned to meet future demands in non-urban areas.
