JRC workshop on renewable energy communities and internet-of-labs

  • 25 Oct 2022


The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission is hosting a two-day workshop titled “Supporting a glocal energy transition: from local energy communities to global simulation networks”, to be held in Ispra (Italy) on the 9th and 10th of November.

The workshop, organized in collaboration with Politecnico di Torino, RWTH Aachen and the Ensiel consortium, seeks to disseminate the research activities of the JRC Smart Grid Interoperability Laboratory and to foster the community discourse on the topics of renewable energy communities and global simulation networks. The event will see the participation of distinguished international speakers from academia, industry and public institutions, which will discuss these subjects in the wider context of the energy transition. The first day of the event will focus on energy communities, presenting some of the latest success stories in the field and discussing their role in the future decarbonized power system under a rapidly changing regulatory framework. The second day of the seminar will focus on the internet-of-labs paradigm, discussing its impact in supporting the energy transition and showcasing a real-time demonstrative experiment with the joint participation of six European laboratories.  The agenda of the event can be found here.
