Final Event of the project on “Innovative solutions for fostering low-carbon strategies and increasing renewable energy sources in the energy mix of the MED area” was successfully organised on the 28th May 2019.

The Consortium of the project StoRES coordinated by the FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy of the University of Cyprus, organised with great success on the 28th May 2019 in Cagliari (Region of Sardinia, Italy), the project’s Final Event on the topic of “Innovative solutions for fostering low-carbon strategies and increasing renewable energy sources in the energy mix of the MED area”. More than 50 stakeholders and experts attended the event, which was supported by the Interreg MED Renewable Energy Community, as well as the University of Cagliari (Associated Partner from Italy and local organiser).

During the event, the main results of the StoRES project were highlighted in an enlightening presentation, demonstrating among others, the trends in energy storage, the role of the prosumers-citizens in the energy transition and the impact on climate action mitigation. Other topics that were discussed during the two interesting panel sessions included the development of Microgrids and their effect on network stability and other innovative tools and methodologies for better governance in the Renewable Energy Sector, such as energy planning and adopting fiscal policies.

The event was preceded by the Partners’ progress meeting taking place on the 27th May 2019, during which they discussed the progress and the encouraging results derived from the activities of the project, including the optimization tool, the cost-benefit analysis, the lessons learnt and the transferring plan, as well as the outcomes and tools that will become available before the end of the project such as the living lab and the policy recommendations.
