The consortium of RENergetic is delighted to announce the start of this joint initiative selected and granted by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation programme.
The European Commission‘s aim is to achieve the climate neutrality by 2050
The main reason why this Project has been conceived is to demonstrate the viability of the so-called urban energy islands.
The goal of the RENergetic project is to demonstrate the improvement of efficiency and energy autarky, the community involvement in and the socio-economic viability of three urban energy islands: The New Docks in Ghent (BE), the Warta Campus in Poznan (PL) and the Hospital and Research campus in Segrate-Milan (Italy).
RENergetic empowers Renewable Energy Communities to inhabit Energy Islands based on an Economy of Quality (quality attributed to the value of living and working in a clean energy society), fueling their involvement in processes traditionally hidden for local communities such as heat supply.
Innovative technologies will be used to achieve these goals
RENergetic will demonstrate the viability of energy islands
in three site pilots, each of them of a different nature:
