The center of gravity of Calls 2016 and 2017 remains the electricity system but with a number of openings for transnational collaboration and connections between energy networks. While call 2016 puts emphasis on the electricity distribution system, the call in 2017 is opened for demonstration projects in the field of transmission. Call 2017 includes links between distribution and transmission networks and links between the electricity network and other energy networks.
