EnergyMatching platform


The new EnergyMatching platform is almost live and we need your help to improve it!


The platform aims to support various stakeholders related to the EnergyMatching project in maximizing the RES harvesting in their built environment including architects, designers, engineers, ESCOs, government housing bodies, sustainable technology providers, real estate, building owners, and research centers. The platform offers users the chance to run an optimisation tool that suggests optimal configurations of BIPV systems and provides inspiring examples of active building skin solutions (BIPV and Solar Window Block and several RES harvesting solutions).

Browsing the platform you will find:

  • an optimisation tool for BIPV systems integrated both in buildings or districts.
  • a section dedicated to results of BIPV systems optimisations
  • a section dedicated to results of simulations performed on a new Solar Window Block system developed within EnergyMatching. The Solar Window Block consists of a prefabricated window block with integrated PV + decentralized ventilation machine + automated dynamic shading system
  • a platform solutions marketplace and connection to the EnergyMatching Catalogue, containing info on all the project`s technologies

The EnergyMatching project is looking to optimise this platform to stakeholder needs and we need your opinion.

To get a sneak peak at the EnergyMatching Platform and give valuable feedback please contact Jennifer Adami (EURAC) [email protected] for more details.


ETIP PV


ETIP PV Annual Conference ‘Solar PV Big & Beyond - Delivering 2030 climate targets’ on 19&20 May


Starting from the EU’s ambitions in terms of economic development and energy transition, this online conference aims at offering a comprehensive understanding of the solar PV projects unraveling in Europe, industry as well as R&D-enabled next steps.


Learn more about the conference sessions and join us!


Furthermore, ETIP PV released a new report on Eco-design & Energy Labelling for PV modules, inverters and systems in the EU.

PV IMPACT


PV IMPACT unveils a Strategic R&I Plan to relaunch the Italian Photovoltaic sector and contribute to the targets of the National Energy and Climate Plan


The plan was a coordinated effort of the whole Italian R&I community stretching from basic research (universities and public research institutions) to industrial research and demonstration (industries). One of the immediate priorities of this network has been to map the research projects and the research facilities devoted to R&I in the field of PV in Italy. The map is available for public download on the PV IMPACT website: Italian R&I laboratories - PV Impact


In parallel, PV IMPACT keeps on populating its public database with new European PV R&I projects. If you want to know which PV projects are running in your country and/or add your own project visit the PV projects database - PV Impact


Lastly, PV IMPACT partner and French manufacturer Photowatt is regularly accepting applications from third parties to access their production lines. In the course of the PV IMPACT project, they have already collaborated with several PV companies to support their innovative projects in fields like cell metallization, custom module manufacturing, etc. Interested? Test the manufacturability of your process at Photowatt's production facilities! - News - PV Impact


BIOFIT


BIOFIT offers virtual Business Mission to Brazil, 24-26 May 2021


The main aim of the EU-funded project BIOFIT is to facilitate the introduction of bioenergy retrofitting in the following five industry sectors: first-generation biofuels, pulp and paper, fossil refineries, fossil firing power and combined heat and power plants.


Within BIOFIT a virtual Business Mission to Brazil serves to exploit opportunities for export markets for European technology providers and industries and to facilitate knowledge exchange (target sectors include advanced biofuels and CHP applications).


In order to promote cooperation and exchange between European industry and private sector players with stakeholders from research, industry and the public sector in Brazil, the BIOFIT project offers a limited number of Free Registration Tickets (Value: 800 USD) to representatives from European private sector organisations to attend the upcoming virtual BBEST2020-21/Biofuture Summit II Conference on 24-26 May 2021.

MOST


The MOST project started in 2018 with the goal of creating innovative educational material for Smart Grids, available as a master course in three universities around Europe - the University of Cagliari in Sardinia, the University of Cyprus, and the Western Macedonia University of Applied Sciences in Greece.


Currently, the project is in its last year of implementation, the course curriculum has been established and the course content and structure have been entirely developed. The Master course is now being offered to students in the form of a pilot in order to get feedback to optimise the course before its launch, in 2022.

REPLACE


WIP, supported by the partners of the REPLACE project, has recently published the report “Best Practice Examples of (R)HC Replacements in the Target Regions”, collecting innovative approaches and best practices which show how replacements of old and inefficient heating systems can be implemented under real local conditions, being technically and economically feasible at the same time.


The report is available in English, German and in other languages.


REPLACE – Making heating and cooling for European consumers efficient, economically resilient, clean and climate-friendly – is an EU-funded project which aims at motivating and supporting people in nine different countries to replace their old heating and cooling systems with more environmentally friendly alternatives.


AgroFossilFree


Since autumn 2020, WIP Renewable Energies participates as a consortium partner in the Horizon 2020 project AgroFossilFree. The project creates a framework for the promotion of the currently available Fossil-Energy-Free Technologies and Strategies (FEFTS) in agriculture. It aims to decrease the use of fossil energy in any farming process from cradle-to-farm gate, while maintaining yield and quality of the end-products. An important aspect of the project is the cooperation with various stakeholders WIP’s main role is to coordinate the inventories and assessments of the FEFTS to be provided for an online database.


FORBIO / BIOPLAT-EU


WIP recently published a paper summarizing the work done in the framework of the FORBIO and BIOPLAT-EU projects.


The paper, titled “Viability and Sustainability Assessment of Bioenergy Value Chains on Underutilised Lands in the EU and Ukraine” investigates the viability of producing biomass for bioenergy purposes on marginal, underutilised and contaminated lands, taking into account the techno-economic, environmental, and social aspects of bioenergy value chains. It also describes how the sustainability assessment of a selected value chain on such a land could be expanded and automated, thus becoming an easy to do exercise that can be performed online by any stakeholder without the need for extensive research, expertise, and funding through the use of the developed webGIS sustainability assessment tool targeted for that purpose.

EU PVSEC 2021


The preparations for the EU PVSEC 2021 are running smoothly. A great number of abstracts have been received and the coordination of the conference programme is in full swing.

The good news is, authors can still send in their late-breaking abstract and present their work at the EU PVSEC. Even the popular oral presentation spots are still available for late submissions.


At the same time, the EU PVSEC is accepting proposals for Parallel Events. For those interested in organising their own side event at the EU PVSEC, you will find all the information you need here.
