Insight Talk Review: Research Results with Impact and Potential

In the last Insight Talk, we focused on successfully completed Green Energy Lab projects and their research results in the areas of Platform Economy and Flexibility. In this wrap-up, you will have access to the recorded online event and presentation slides.

The Green Energy Lab looks back on five successful years and we are pleased that more and more of our projects are being successfully completed. The sample solutions developed in the projects make a clear contribution to the energy transition and many implemented demonstrators show corresponding exploitation potentials for the market. Mark Stefan (AIT), project representative, shared his experiences and learnings from the Blockchain Grid and CLUE projects. He also highlighted potentials for exploitation, scaling and the realizable impact of the innovations.

As our R&D Manager Christian Kurz demonstrated in his presentation, the Green Energy Lab Impact Analysis is an important tool to show the effectiveness and potential of the solutions developed in the projects. This allows us, as a flagship region and collaborative coordinator of now 60 projects, to assess the overall impact of our portfolio, draw conclusions across projects, and derive relevant insights for policy makers. For example, research programs are to be made even more effective and our portfolio is to be developed further in a targeted manner. On an individual project level, the Green Energy Lab Impact Analysis offers an established method to professionally map the potential and effectiveness already in the project application and thus achieve a positive impact on the funding probability.

The Blockchain Grid project has been exploring ways to best allocate free grid resources for the benefit of prosumers, rather than limiting feed-ins. Blockchain technologies were used for this purpose.

The CLUE project grew out of the Blockchain Grid project and looked at implementing local energy communities in four European countries (Sweden, Scotland, Germany and Austria). The goal was to gain insights into the optimal design, planning and operation of such energy communities and to develop a toolkit for this purpose.

Many thanks to our speaker Mark Stefan for the valuable and inspiring insights!

We are also happy to provide the overall presentation for review.

As a particularly exciting funding opportunity, we would like to once again draw attention to the “Clean Energy Transition Partnership” (CETP) initiative, which has been put out to tender. TRI 5 strives to build up ecosystems for the energy transition across Europe, with a focus on local and regional energy systems,in turn centered on the “need owners” of specific regions, and their aggregation at the European level.
