The general objective of the ASSET project is to deliver studies in support to EU policy making in the field of energy, in particular on the EU electricity system and on the large-scale integration of renewable energy sources.

More specifically, topics of the studies include detailed aspects such as consumers, demand-response, smart meters, smart grids, storage,etc., not only in terms of technologies but also in terms of regulations, market design and business models.

Connections between the electricity grid and other networks such as gas (e.g. security of supply) and heat (e.g. district heating, heating and cooling) as well as synergies between these networks are also studied. Moreover, topics deal also with heating and cooling, energy efficiency in houses, buildings and cities and associated smart energy systems, use of biomass for energy applications, etc.

The studies not only summarize the state-of-the-art in these domains, but conduct detailed analyses (including quantitative analyses) on the basis of recognized techniques. The needs for dedicated research and innovation actions in these domains is also studied.
