Sustainable urban smart grids in Brazil
A consortium of Swedish and Brazilian stakeholders is exploring opportunities for developing sustainable urban smart grids in Brazil. This includes the definition of “solution packages” and “business cases” with demonstration value and potential to be implemented and replicated. The effort builds upon Swedish experiences in the field of smart grids and the concept of SymbioCity.
