MUSE GRIDS at the European Union Sustainable Energy Week in BRUSSELS, BELGIUM
The European Sustainable Energy Week is a week-long initiative by the European Commission to promote clean energy across the European Union. Launched in 2006, it is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises in close cooperation with the Directorate-General for Energy. The 2019 edition took place on 17-21 June in Brussels, Belgium.
Gathering all types of stakeholders of sustainable energy, EUSEW is one of the most important yearly events for the sector. It offers a wide range of activities, from a policy conference to the so-called Energy Days, as well as an award ceremony and a Networking Village.
RINA-C, coordinator of MUSE GRIDS, presented some of its EU-funded projects at the Energy Fair, which is part of the Networking Village of EUSEW on 19 June:
“2030 EU ENERGY GRIDS – HOW TO MANAGE THEM TOWARDS MAXIMISATION OF THE USE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES?”
Alessandra Cuneo – RINA R&D Project Technical Coordinator, presented the latest advancements of three H2020 Research Project coordinated by RINA: SMILE (GA No 731249), MUSE GRIDS (GA No 824441) and E-LOBSTER (GA No. 774392). The projects focus on innovative technologies and control strategies for energy grids to guarantee green and reliable energy on islands, in local energy communities and cities thanks to storage, DR schemes and the inter-operation of different energy assets.
Attendees of the Policy Conference could play a quiz game at the booth hosted by RINA-C, with questions related to one of the three projects and their assets. A video presenting the project was displayed on the booth, exploring the key message of MUSE GRIDS: that small actions can lead to great results. The MUSE GRIDS Consortium was excited to show how MUSE GRIDS is shaping Europe’s energy future!
