Presentation of the roadmap beyond 2019

Last December 11th, 2019, the RIS3CAT Energy Community held its Final Event at ACCIÓ premises, and presented the roadmap beyond 2019. This Community, led by IREC, is an ecosystem that brings together actors of the quadruple helix of the energy sector in Catalonia.

The welcome introduction was done by Àurea Rodríguez, Director of the Innovation Unit of ACCIÓ, and Manel Sanmartí, coordinator of the RIS3CAT Energy Community and head of the CD&KTT Unit at IREC.

The event was divided into two different sessions. The first focused on the valorisation of the R+D+I projects, their impact and future plans:

  • NAenCAT “The future of electrical networks”
  • LCA Enerboost “Ecoinnovation in the Catalan energy sector”
  • REFER “Energy flexibility: the buildings of the future”
  • CoSin “Renewable gas for the energy transition”
  • ESTORELOT “Innovative management of wind power”
  • FLEXEDINET “Big Data for energy management”
  • MicroTIC “ICT innovative solutions for SMEs”

After the break, the coordination team from IREC continued with the evaluation and impact of the Community as an ecosystem (by Anna Magrasó), followedby the presentation of the roadmap beyond 2019 (by Manel Sanmartí). The audience could afterwards make questions and give their feedback about the future of this Community.

The coordination team at IREC thanks the active participation of the coordinators of the R+D+I projects during the implementation period, as well as all the members that made the technical development of the projects a reality. The Sectorial Commissions and all associate members of the Community are acknowledged for their implication in the ecosystem.
