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
