A STRATEGIC OPPORTUNITY

The OPTIAM project is an opportunity both for the 7 project partners and for the Basque Country in general, as it proposes a resilient transition of the Basque electricity sector through the development of innovative solutions and digitalisation in the areas of Low Voltage grid and smart meter, Medium and High Voltage grid, smart substation and smart grid management, all of which are priorities in the Basque Energy Technological and Industrial Development Strategy (EnergiBasque).
