WP2: Pan-European R&I community

D2.1 Report on stakeholder’s identification and interaction
This deliverable is intended to report and analyse the stakeholders identification and interaction process put in place by the PANTERA project. More in detail this report, through the analysis of the replies received to a dedicated questionnaire, proposes some preliminary analysis and hints that could be useful for the continuation of the work in order to reach all the PANTERA project objectives.

D2.3 First report on interactions with European platforms and organizations
This deliverable reports the results of the activities performed within the PANTERA project task 2.3 “Interactions with European platforms and organizations”. The aim of this task is to establish collaboration links with European and international organizations to promote the activities of the PANTERA project and gather valuable and updated information from the global smart grids research and innovation field.

WP3 The state of R&I, standardisation and regulation

D3.1 Report on current status and progress in R&I activities: Technology
In this report, extensive review has been done on the national, EU and International initiatives and some of the important methodologies to evaluate the smart grid projects and to understand the current R&I status and progress at national level towards the harmonised energy transition. PANTERA attempts here to develop a generalised methodology for an evaluation process of the R&I projects to achieve the integrated energy system at national and EU level. 

D3.2 Report on Regulations, Codes and Standards in EU-28
This deliverable aims at reviewing Regulations, Codes and Standards (RCS) in the Smart Grid domain that will form valuable content to the EIRIE platform. The report is committed to be a useful source of structured information on European RCS in the Smart Grid domain. It contains discussions on practical and legal aspects of RCS and their possibility to support R&I activities.

D3.3 Report on community energy policy and barriers
This deliverable identifies the key policies for consumers’ empowerment and the missing links/barriers in related policies of the low spending countries as found in their National Energy and Climate Plans (NECP). This is key for providing recommendations, build a profile of the countries and contribute to the PANTERA RICAP process in relation to the community energy policy and barriers.

WP4: Key topics and content management

D4.1 Content and Topics for Dissemination and Networking Activities
The main objective of this report is to present the initial identification of the content aligned with Pan-European goals and priorities. This will form the baseline for the needs’ identification of the stakeholders and thus the content of the dissemination and networking activities.

D4.2 First Report on Identification of Gaps and Missing Subjects
The main objective of this report is the verification and adjustment of the content, identification of the gaps and missing points in Smart grid Research and Innovation (R&I) activities at national level. The whole process will continue for 30 months to identify the final gaps and missing contents to accelerate the R&I activities in Europe.

D4.2.2 Second Report on Identification of Gaps and Missing Subjects
This document is the second version of the report on the identification of gaps and missing subjects for the PANTERA target countries. Ongoing discussions with several pan-European industrial associations related to the selected approach on identifying R&I activities and gaps have enabled a continuous monitoring and adaptation of the approach. This deliverable also includes results of ongoing surveys and the outcomes of the individual interviews carried out during the last two PANTERA workshops. 

WP5: Workshop and dedicated stakeholders meeting organisation

D5.1 Workshop format
One of the main objectives of the PANTERA project is the organisation of several interactive regional and pan European workshops and webinars. This report illustrates the format that is going to be used for PANTERA workshops, which will be almost common for all workshops, to provide consistency. Moreover, this document will be used as a guideline for the consortium to prepare and organise PANTERA workshops.

D5.2 Report on the outcomes of regional workshops (intermediary)
A main goal of the organised workshops within PANTERA is to reach out to a wider range of local, regional and international stakeholders and initiatives, to discuss smart grid-related priorities of the respective regions and assess their needs. In this report, part of WP5 – Workshop and dedicated stakeholders meeting organisation, you will find the main outcomes of the regional and nano-workshops that took place during the first two years of the project. (2019 and 2020).

D5.4 Report on the outcomes of pan-European and global workshops (intermediary)
One of the main objectives of the PANTERA project is the organisation of dedicated workshops to facilitate the exchange of experiences and knowledge, and building up the active participation of members of the R&I community. This report presents the main outcomes of the pan-European workshops that were organised during the first two years of the project (2019 and 2020).

WP6: Collaboration working groups (WG)

D6.1 Review of EU strategic priorities and relevant policy developments
This deliverable aims at reviewing the EU policies on climate and energy. These include the EU 2030 and 2050 strategies (“A policy framework for climate and energy in the period from 2020 to 2030” and “A European strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy” and relevant legislative acts, mostly focusing on “Clean energy for all Europeans”.

D6.2 Stakeholder consultation plans (one for each region/country)
The current document sets the initial consultation plan for the PANTERA project which may be enhanced further during the project execution based on identified stakeholder needs and interests. The purpose of the consultation plan is to establish a common framework for coordinated stakeholder engagement as it is an essential prerequisite for reaching PANTERA project’s ambitious target to create a multi-functional platform of pan-European status and influence.

D6.3 Consolidated Summary Report of Desk Activities in the Target Regions
This document provides a summary of activities performed within the Regional Desks framework from building up the approach and setting the objectives to analysing results and outlining next steps so far. It includes not only descriptions of activities within all Regions, but also supportive actions performed centrally, including developing and analysing dedicated survey, investigating pathways of implementation of Smart Specialisation, continuous update and monitoring of PANTERA country profiles and identification of best-practice examples.

WP8: Dissemination and Communication activities

D8.1 Dissemination, communication and cooperation plan
This report presents the plan for communication and dissemination, as well as the cooperation activities with identified stakeholders of the PANTERA project. It sets out to establish the strategy that will be used throughout the project to reach the different target audiences of the project, having them classified into several stakeholder groups. Different communication channels – online and offline – will be used to effectively communicate with the project stakeholders and general public.

D8.2 Promotion and marketing material
The current deliverable presents the project website and its structure, along with the project promotion and marketing materials. It elaborates on the target, main functionalities, contents and future developments of these project resources. The report also presents the project visual identity like for example, the project logo and project images.
