EU’s Horizon 2020 has awarded the +CityxChange project a grant worth 22 million Euros as a Smart City lighthouse project. Powel is a partner in the consortium, which over the next five years will develop a series of demonstration projects on how to become “smart positive energy cities”. The Lighthouse cities are Trondheim, Norway and Limerick, Ireland with follower cities in five EU countries. Powel will contribute with software solutions for local energy market trade and system operation. The +CityxChange project will demonstrate local and flexible energy systems in smart cities. Trondheim and Limerick will together with five follower cities implement and demonstrate solutions to help districts generate more energy than is consumed. Knowledge sharing between the cities will ensure that everyone learns quicker, together. Under the leadership of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the seven cities will develop and test new solutions together with an impressive list of large entreprises, SMEs, non-for-profit organisations and universities, covering the entire value chain. Powel is proud to be a partner together with: IES R&D, University of Limerick, Energy Agency of Plovdiv, Future Analytics Consulting, Research2Market Solutions, ISOCARP, TrønderEnergi, ABB Norway, ATB, AVIS Budget Group, Statkraft Heat, ESB Innovation, ESB… continue reading
