The Grupo Red Eléctrica Campus in Tres Cantos, Madrid, welcomed last March the selected participants of Grid2030 to hold the first workshop of the program and co-created the future project proposals from the applications received during the first call of the program.
The main objective of the workshop was to bring together the program organizers (Red Eléctrica de España and InnoEnergy) and the 27 selected applications to offer them a ground for interaction to facilitate dialogue and idea exchange among all participants. Thanks to the presence and active contribution of 15 cross-functional experts from Red Eléctrica de España, the participants also had the opportunity to learn about the key aspects of the company's strategy and innovation philosophy, as well as learning more about the challenges and expectations of the TSO in relation to their proposals.
During the workshop, Red Eléctrica de España, InnoEnergy and the Grid2030 participants worked on the definition of coherent projects to match the objectives of the program (promote, learn, energize), the strategic vision of Red Eléctrica de España and the orientation towards the development of disruptive initiatives, promoting collaboration among leading entities in the sector. This framework generated opportunities for each participant to analyse and obtain an external standpoint on their proposal and be able to identify the needs to increase its value for the selection process.
We are very satisfied with the content and the results of the day. We want to thank all participants for having the courage and merit of facing this innovative and demanding co-creation process. All of them shared ideas, promoted topics of interest and actively participated in the different dynamics of the event.
