BRIDGE is a European Commission initiative which unites Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage Projects to create a structured view of cross-cutting issues which are encountered in the demonstration projects and may constitute an obstacle to innovation.
The BRIDGE process fosters continuous knowledge sharing amongst projects thus allowing them to deliver conclusions and recommendations about the future exploitation of the project results, with a single voice, through four Working Groups (Data Management, Business Models, Regulations, and Customer Engagement) representing the main areas of interest.
The BRIDGE initiative gathers 32 projects, involving 379 organisations from 31 countries, in receipt of a total of €337M of EC funding. There are 26 countries currently hosting BRIDGE project demos or pilots.

The RealValue project is actively involved in the activities of BRIDGE; RealValue participates in all four Working Groups, and Project Director Rowena McCappin acts as rapporteur for the Business Models Working Group.
