Our project lead Dr Johanna Hoeffken was recently interviewed by the Dutch Embassy in India.
She argued that the Smart Grids in India project (DISGI) has taken some key innovative steps towards understading, developing and implementing smart grids in India. These include:
- Forming an interdisciplinary collaboration of scientists, businesses and societal stakeholders, both in India and the Netherlands
- Bringing together two Dutch companies, PRE and Rural Spark, and two research institutions, TU/e and TERI University, with a total of 3 post docs, an engineer, a social scientist and an ethicist
- Conducting a long-term and close study of smart grids
- Giving equal importance to the technology, social embedding, ethical acceptability and institutional support
