Country Partner: Germany
The aim of this stakeholder meeting was to gain a deeper understanding of the clean energy transition and put together a strong programme that will push forward the debate across all fronts, both on a thematic level and in a geographic sense.
The meeting hosted 14 representatives from various German companies and organisations from the energy sector (see full list below). In a two hour brainstorm, our German stakeholders gave us an overview of all the great projects and best practices Germany as partner country can showcase throughout the EUW programme.
Amongst these best practices, for example, are the projects funded by the SINTEG programme, which aims to set up large-scale showcase regions for developing and demonstrating model solutions that can deliver a secure, efficient and environmentally compatible energy supply with electricity being generated to a large extent from volatile sources such as wind or solar.
The programme places a clear focus on building smart networks linking up the energy supply and demand sides, and on the use of innovative grid technology and operating strategies.
It thus addresses key challenges of the energy transition including the integration of renewables into the system, flexibility, digitisation, system security, energy efficiency and the establishment of smart energy systems and market structures. The project makes an important contribution to moving forward the digital transformation and the energy transition.
