With its own firesteel, the Horizon Europe project with demonstration pilots in Denmark, Portugal and Norway kicked off as it should, with a small fire lit by project leader Peter Breuhaus from NORCE.
The solutions developed within this EU Horizon Europe project lead by NORCE, ELEXIA, will be demonstrated in three pilots: one in Bergen, Norway, the second in Høje-Taastrup, Copenhagen, Denmark and finally, the third one in Sines, Portugal.
ELEXIA (Demonstration of a digitized energy system integration across sectors enhancing flexibility and resilience towards efficient, sustainable, cost-optimised, affordable, secure, and stable energy supply) is anchored under the EU Green Deal & the EU Strategy for Energy System Integration.
Yesterday members of the Consortium got together in Bergen, Norway for the Kick-off meeting. Throughout the meeting there will be an online connection allowing for the Partners who were not able to travel, to attend remotely. The assembly lasts for two full days, giving all project members the chance to meet one another and engage in an extensive and productive conversation about the project’s objectives, work packages and pilot applications, as well as our forthcoming steps, under the coordination of the Norwegian Research Centre - NORCE.
22 partners from 8 countries will be working together under the coordination of NORCE. The solutions developed within ELEXIA will be demonstrated in three pilots: one at Dokken in Bergen, Norway, the second in Høje-Taastrup, Copenhagen, Denmark and finally, the third one in Sines, Portugal.
ELEXIA contributes to establish concrete pathways to achieve independence of fossil fuels by harnessing the latent flexibility of the energy system through integration across sectors, data-intelligence, and planning, towards 2050 European goals. It is in line with the Paris Agreement and the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
This project receives funding in the European Commissions’ Horizon Europe I&A Research Programme under Grant Agreement N° 101075656.
