We are glad to update you hereby that by end of 2019 twenty-three projects have been awarded under ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems Joint Call 2018 on Integrated Regional Energy Systems.
With a funding budget of more than 30 million EUR the Joint Call 2018 aimed at innovative solutions for facilitating cross-sectoral, holistic approaches for enabling regions and local communities to move towards a decarbonized energy system by 2030. The EC supports the funding collaboration with more than 10 million euros and the national and regional funding partners contribute roughly 20 million euros.
The projects focus on the development of integrated local and regional energy systems. The call resulted in a broad range of projects meeting local and regional challenges. Projects include aspects such as energy system flexibility, smart control of district heating and cooling, local and microgrids, climate neutral hydrogen turbines, distributed electricity network optimization, information and communication technologies, agriculture sector-coupling to the energy system, as well as citizen inclusion and regional energy planning.
