EmpowerMED H2020 project for energy poverty mitigation

The main contribution of IREC to empower energy poverty affected people is to develop a fast method to do energy audits through smart meter readings and participate to monitor the thermal comfort of several households to provide useful tools to analyze and easily explain the energy bill.

The reason behind the project is that, in Mediterranean countries, the coastal areas are facing several specific challenges when it comes to energy poverty, mainly connected with thermal comfort of dwellings. Buildings are scarcely isolated, often there are no heating systems in buildings, those are highly inefficient or unused to save consumption and the cooling component is more important than in other areas, calling for a diversity of energy services beyond heating. Women and women-led households are disproportionately affected by energy poverty, while women’s agency is highlighted in acting against energy poverty.


EmpowerMED contributes to the energy poverty abatement through implementing a set of practical energy efficiency, RES measures and policy recommendations with the focus set on gender issues.

The project will run from 1 September 2019 – 31 August 2023. It is financed with slightly less than 2 million EUR from H2020 budget line. It covers 7 countries with 9 partner organizations.  EmpowerMED – 847052 H2020 program.

The CASE project of IREC selected by The Collider program

The Energy Systems Analytics research group of IREC, led by Dr. Cristina Corchero, has been chosen to take part at the new edition of The Collider program , with their project CASE. This program of tech transfer was promoted by the Mobile World Capital Barcelona and it links scientific and entrepreneurial talent to create disruptive technology-based startups that address society's and insdustr's challenges. It focuses on the identification and business development of highly disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Blockchain and Virtual Reality.

The Collider designs a business experience with intensive training, expert support and the advice from well-known professionals from the business world. The plenary session counted on the attendance of the Minister of Enterprise and Knowledge of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Àngels Chacón, as well as Carlos Graupera,  CEO of Mobile World Capital Barcelona, and Pere Condom,  Director of the Catalunya Emprèn program, among others.

IREC, in collaboration with Innoenergy and ICAEN, publishes the study "Smart Energy Communities"

IREC and Innoenergy have collaborated to elaborate the study "Smart Energy Communities", recently published by ICAEN. IREC has contributed in providing its vision on Smart Energy Communities, as well as solutions for the improvement and the optimisation of the energy resources.

The study analyses the key concepts of the energy transition and it shows its relationship with distributed renewable energies, the digitalisation, the aggregation and the demand management, among others. Also, the publication analyses the characteristics of the smart energy communities, and its interest to make the energy transition come true, as well as the new business models that will arise from it.

Please follow the link to download the study.

IREC at the EUSEW Policy Conference

IREC coordinated an event at the EU Sustainable Energy Week Policy Conference in Brussels titled “The Road to a 100% Green and Fully Electric Transport System”. The event gave an expert insight on current trends and policy recommendations on the future of electric transport and the need to move to a zero emissions model. The experts participating showed the latest developments in research and technology on the field, including stories from leading smart charging and vehicle to grid (V2G) pilot projects.

The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. The 14th edition of EUSEW has took place from 17th to 21st June 2019, with the Policy Conference running from Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th June in Brussels. Electromobility and renewable Energy were recognised as priorities for the future in Europe.

The session was coordinated by IREC - Institut de Recerca en Energia de Catalunya , with the support from European Forum for Renewable Energy Sources, AVERE and Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB).
