IMEAS Partner B.A.U.M. Consult GmbH, being part of the ERA-NET Smart Energy Systems Knowledge Community Management, held a side event to the Intersolar fair in Munich. The event was co-organized by SOLAR-ERA.NET and ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems. The research and development community, industry representatives, investors and funding partners met and worked together on transnational level to create added value on the topic of Smart Solar Power in Europe. Both networks bring together R&D and innovation programmes across Europe and have so far supported some 100 transnational projects involving about 500 organisations in Europe. The event featured a variety of interesting presentations and workshops on accelerating the transition to a smart and sustainable energy system with smart solar power in Europe. Opportunities for transnational cooperation with complementary skills, equipment and facilities along the value chain from research to industry have been discussed for increasing the outreach to markets in Europe and beyond.

The participants had the chance to

  • Learn about the funding opportunities provided by SOLAR-ERA.NET and ERA-Net SES
  • Get insight into cornerstones of the EC Strategic Energy Technology Plan for solar power and smart energy systems and the new legal framework for Local Energy Communities
  • Exchange with potential project partners and representatives from national funding agencies
  • Explore topics and build new consortia in view of the upcoming joint calls
  • Identify success factors based on the experience and lessons learnt within projects supported by SOLAR-ERA.NET and ERA-Net SES
