The electric grids associations and platforms of Canada, France and Spain, supported by the respective embassies and the CDTI, organized, on November 14th, a workshop within the framework of the Utility Week aiming at sharing the challenges and opportunities of different countries in the field of smart grids and energy storage, networking and promoting technological development and innovation projects.

The meeting, in which more than 100 people participated, was opened by the Consul of France and the Consul of Canada.

Several associations and platforms showed the trends and opportunities for Smart Grids, as well as the different tools for funding and supporting the implementation of projects.
