Smart Grids Week |Graz 2014
Preface BMVIT
Research and technological development make a decisive contribution to securing our energy future. As Minister of Technology
I am concerned with two fundamental approaches – firstly, that
innovative technological solutions are developed and secondly and
just as importantly, that these new technologies find their way
into applications and onto the market. This is the only way in which
we can bring about the energy turnaround and only in this way will
we be able to exhaust the entire potential of new technologies and
make them into the driver of added value and jobs in our country.
For this reason my department supports innovative companies and
research organizations in the development of pilot and demonstration projects.
It gives me particular pleasure that the Austrian Smart Grids model
regions have, in the meantime, become clearly visible internationally
and that some of them have even become a central element of the
European SET-Plan initiative. This puts Austrian companies and
researchers in an excellent position for international partnerships
and co-operations.
I sincerely wish all the participants at this year’s Smart Grids Week
that this event will be a significant exhibition of innovative Austrian
technologies. And I am delighted that this time the people and
companies for whom the new technologies have been developed and
who will use them will be at the centre of the discussions. In this way
social innovations can emerge from technological solutions.

Preface Energie Steiermark
The world of the power companies is changing. Customers are
becoming producers. Providers are becoming service providers. This
also means re-thinking core competences, especially as far as grids
are concerned.
Energie Steiermark has already followed this course of action.
Innovative energy and mobility services as well as energy-efficient
products complement the classical business areas of electricity, gas
and heat. The company is an “Official Partner of a Green World” with
the aim of helping to achieve safe and sustainable life.
The increasingly complex interaction between decentralised power
generation and the customer places extremely high and new demands
on efficient smart grids – and on our committed employees.
As host of “Smart Grids Week I Graz 2014” Energie Steiermark places
customer benefits in the foreground – and wishes you a successful
In line with the changed market-driven conditions research projects
take account of the topics of the future – renewable energy,
environmental and energy-efficient technologies, mobility and of
course smart cities.
Knowledge and experience from these activities flow into product
development and thus guarantee sustainable innovation. For us, as a
Styrian service provider, the topic of “Smart Grids” is the basis of the
energy turnaround we want to bring about and also the entry into a
new infrastructure era.

DAY 1 – Monday, May 19th, 2014
ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus Kick-Off
09:00-17:00 Energie Steiermark, Leonhardgürtel 10, 8010 Graz, Austria
The first day of the ERA-Net event is primarily directed towards smart grids programme owners, programme
managers, as well as policy makers and national key experts. During the day we will exchange experience and
knowledge on national Smart Grids Roadmaps, action plans as well as current research and implementation
strategies. In the afternoon the first ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus Steering Board meeting will take place.

“The EU INCREASE Project - Providing Solutions for Distributed RES Generation from
Technical Issues to Test Case Demonstrations“
09:00-12:30 Energie Steiermark, Leonhardgürtel 10, 8010 Graz, Austria
The European project INCREASE (FP7) aims to look for a solution to connect distributed renewable energy
sources in an optimal way to the distribution grid. Control strategies will be developed and the possible
provision of ancillary services will be examined. The results from this research will be tested, first in a
simulation platform, then in laboratory environments and even in the real distribution grids in Austria,
Slovenia and the Netherlands.
This workshop will discuss the major possible problems in LV networks and technical and economic solutions
to be investigated in the INCREASE project. In particular, this workshop will aim to engage a range of stakeholders in order to obtain practical feedback. The international experience on distributed renewable energy
sources shared by the workshop participants will broaden the understanding of the issues.

Limited number of participants.
Research Area: Hybrid Energy Networks and Systems
13:00-17:00 Energie Steiermark, Leonhardgürtel 10, 8010 Graz, Austria
The smart grid concept is applicable not only to electricity, but also to natural gas and district heating networks.
Nevertheless, the technical and economic potential of such hybrid networks have not been studied systematically. Within the working group “Hybrid Networks and Synergies with Municipal Infrastructures“, initiated by the
Austrian Ministry for Transportation, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT), concrete implementation options have
been identified, potential estimated and obstacles to implementation and research needs have been identified.
In this workshop - as part of the strategy process Smart Grids 2.0 - the preliminary results from this working
group and possible future R & D priorities are presented and discussed with relevant stakeholders.
In German only!

ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus “Non-Conference”- Matchmaking and Open Space
09:00 - 17:00
Energie Steiermark, Leonhardgürtel 10, 8010 Graz, Austria
At the focus of the “Non-Conference Days” is the informal exchange of experience and ideas by experts and
companies from the fields of smart grids and smart energy. In order to facilitate the formation of the transnational
consortia for the planned ERA-Net Joint Call at the end of the year, the second day of the Era-Net event provides
the opportunity to proponents of smart grids projects from industry, infrastructure operators and research institutions from various European countries to exchange their expertise and experience. New players in the world of smart
grids such as providers of new services are addressed in particular. Bilateral meetings will be arranged in advance as
“Matchmaking Sessions”. Moreover there will be an Open Space for the exchange of opinions and ideas to design
joint research tenders and any associated activities.

Evening Event of Energie Steiermark
Energie Steiermark, E-Office/10th floor (Leonhardgürtel 10, 8010 Graz, Austria)
Dr. Jörg Wallner “Living Environment 2025”
Jörg Wallner is Director of Innovation Management & Consulting at the 2b AHEAD think tank set up by the trend researcher Sven Gabor
Janszky. Jörg Wallner knows which technologies will be of crucial importance in the future, which new business models are trend-setting
for various industries, where attacks threaten established business models and when companies should use opportunities to enter into
new business sectors and to develop new business models. But above all he is THE expert as far as the decisive question HOW is
concerned. How can companies initiate innovations? How can they distance themselves from their (new) competitors and expand their
own strengths? How can they achieve the necessary speed and develop a steady culture of innovation?
Bernhard Wolff “Thinking helps! – Desire for Ideas”
Moderator and keynote speaker Bernhard Wolff is an expert on new ideas, creativity and communication. He imparts a toolbox of the
most successful area thinking techniques: the participants experience the amazing effect of pictures in their heads, invent new products
and services by creative association, solve problems through changes in perspective, question assumptions, think outside the box,
generate ideas and cast a look at the future. Humorously and in cabaret mode keynote speaker Bernhard Wolff makes the audience
aware to what extent their thoughts and actions are shaped by perception and behavioural patterns. Whoever can laugh at their own
habits can also break them!
followed by social networking
The tickets for the evening event are limited and shall be allocated according to the order in which registrations are received.
