As the number one purchaser of renewable energy credits in the USA and strategic investor in renewable energy start-up companies, Intel will bring a relevant contribution and know-how to FOSG in relation to the application of technology and open standards to accelerate the creation of a smart pan-European Supergrid.

FOSG is happy to count on a company with a research and development department comprising more than 6,000 researchers and scientists operating collaboratively across the world. Skilled professionals along the entire supply chain industry that FOSG represents are a fundamental element to deliver a project such as the European Supergrid for a decarbonised power sector.

“Intel has long history driving energy efficiency across computing technologies based on Moore’s Law. While ICT accounts for approximately 2% of the world’s carbon emissions, we foresee immense opportunities in the application of ICT technology to reduce the other 98 per cent. The transition to a sustainable low carbon electrical energy system built on large scale renewable energy integration requires significant technology innovations,” comments Martin Curley, Director of Intel Labs Europe. “Intel has long history in technology innovations and looks forward to collaborating with supergrid consortia in helping define the future ICT architecture to control and optimize the European supergrid maximizing renewables integration.”

The Friends of the Supergrid is a group of companies and organisations which have a mutual interest in promoting and influencing the policy and regulatory framework required to enable large-scale interconnection in Europe. With a special insight into the technology needed to create Supergrid the Friends will be empowered to build the know-how to deliver it in practice.

FOSG counts on 22 members including: 3E, ACS-Cobra, ALSTOM, CESI, CG, DEME Blue Energy, DONG Energy, Elia, General Electric, Hochtief Construction AG, Intel, Mainstream Renewable Power, UK National Grid, Nexans, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Prysmian Cables & Systems, Red Eléctrica of Spain, RTE-France, Siemens, Vattenfall, Visser & Smit Marine Contracting and wpd offshore.
