Smart Grid Workshop with Teachers and Industry Partners

Oldenburg, 14th February 2014

The first information workshop on Smart Grid during the e-Skills for Digital Jobs campaign! Teachers, industry partners, IT-associations and the Ministry of Education (State of Lower Saxony) discussed the latest development of Smart Grid regulation in Germany and how this relates with the development of online learning material. The host organization BFE Oldenburg ( www.bfe.de ) demonstrated a technical solution that matches with the draft technical regulation. The participants agreed upon that further awareness raising campaigns will be necessary. The electrical installers need more understanding and competences in basic IP based network communication. Industry partners that participated in the discussion: EWE AG, Smart Optimo GmbH, Cisco Systems.
