On the 19th of March 2014 the members of the INCREASE Advisory Board met for the first time in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
As INCREASE has a major impact for the end-users, i.e. the network operators, the consortium decided to call upon an external Advisory Group to discuss intermediate results and to gain input for ongoing work packages. This also allows timely adjustments of results and work progress. The members of the Advisory Board belong to DSOs and TSOs from other countries, coordinators of other projects and members of ENTSO-E and EDSO. The Advisory Board follows the way INCREASE will develop the different solutions to ensure that the active market demand is taken into account.
During their first meeting in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the Advisory Board joined the INCREASE Management Meeting. A general presentation was first given to introduce INCREASE. After that the WP leaders explained the objectives and approach of their work packages. This was followed by a very interesting discussion and exchange of know-how and experiences.
The next Advisory Board Meeting will be organized in spring 2015.
