18 June 2019
GRIDSOL, led by Cobra, has been selected as one of the favourite practices of the 6th round of the annual ‘Good Practice of the Year’ award within the category “Technological Innovation & System Integration”.
The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) announced one of the “Good Practice of the year” annual awards to Grupo Cobra at the Energy Infrastructure Forum in Copenhagen. The Deputy Director General for Energy, Klaus-Dieter Borchardt, delivered the trophies in all categories: ‘Communication & Engagement’, ‘Environmental Protection’ and ‘Technological Innovation & System Integration’.
The nine experts who formed the jury elected one of the Cobra Group submissions as “the Good Practice of the Year”. The Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) is a unique collaboration of environmental NGOs and transmission system operators from across Europe.
GRIDSOL is coordinated by the COBRA Group, with nine project partners from industry, utilities, research centres and energy consultancies. It has been running since 2016 and will finish its implementation phase at the end of this year.
CROSSBOW is also among the jury’s favourite practices of the ‘Good Practice of the Year’ award. This practice, led by ETRA, is also another of the winners in this category where Cobra actively participates as a European member.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727362.
