Despite the adversities (pandemic, war in Ukraine, high energy prices) the EU Commission not only kept, but raised the goal of the Green Deal. RepowerEU is the union's optimistic but feasible answer. To achieve the goal, we need solutions that will contribute to the flexibility and the resilience of the grid. The projects of this session are a good holistic example of what the EU Commission has in mind for the promotion of flexibility of the European grid. In local and paneuropean levels. And in this session they are going to narrate their stories.
