The CA aims to contribute to the integration and strengthening of European research on Renewable Energy Sources and associated power converters, controllers and combined use. The proposal is a step forward in securing a leading role for Europe in sustainable energy systems, strategically important to some EC Programme objectives: large scale implementation of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), energy storage technologies and systems for grid connected applications. It is focused on the development of key enabling technologies for distributed / smart energy networks, with high power quality and service security. The technical issues to be coordinated are concerned with solar, wind and micro-hydro systems control in conjunction with compensatory energy storage systems (fuel cells, hydrogen) and connection to the grid.
