The exchange of energy across company borders - which is becoming possible through regulatory changes - presents new opportunities for CO2-reduction and the competitiveness of industry. The flagship project InduGrid creates a platform for mapping industrial energy consumption and generation in a spatial context. It establishes 3 test beds for industrial energy communities and develops and validates new business models.
The main goals are:
- Creation of a platform for mapping industrial energy consumption and generation in a spatial and temporal context
- Establishment of 3 test beds for industrial energy communities for the demonstration of energy exchange
- Development and validation of new business models and services
- Assessment of socio-economic impacts and public value generation
