4-PART PROJECT WORKSHOP SERIES
Four strategically timed workshops that facilitate smart grid stakeholder interaction will be planned. Each workshop edition will especially involves 2 to 3 members of the project’s Value-Driven Advisory Group, who will be asked to contribute to the preparation and facilitation of the workshops. Each workshop will provide materials to stimulate thought beforehand and workshop results will be published afterwards.

Key Outputs: feedback for leveraging MAS2TERING foreground market uptake and commercialisation. On 30th June, MAS2TERING led a clustering workshop at the 4th Sustainable Places 2016 international conference held in historic Basque Country on the border of Spain and France in Anglet. After an introduction to the workshop objectives and business models developed by the MAS2TERING project by Thomas Messervey (MAS2TERING-SP2016), there were presentations from two invited guests, Thomas Walter (Easy Smart Grid) and Marijn DeKoning (USEF) followed by a fruitful discussion.
- Fourth Workshop: Smart Grid Technologies and Project Use Cases I (resp. LAB)
Key Outputs: The aim of this workshop was to validate with an expert panel the approach and technologies developed in the Mas2tering project and to assess the costs and benefits of these outcomes.
