H2020 SABINA project is organising its first national based workshop “New business model for innovative companies in the energy sector”, that will take place in Horsens, Denmark on November 9, 2017.
The electricity grids of Member States across the EU are struggling with capacity problems caused by intermittent generation. SABINA is a Horizon 2020 project that targets thermal inertia to achieve energy flexibility in buildings, helping to reach the EU’s long-term objectives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The uniqueness of the SABINA solution lies also on the novelty of its business model that will address innovative companies in the energy sector to enhance the use of heat pumps and serve as heating suppliers, developing flexibility aggregators for energy trading and balancing services.
This workshop will discuss how such a business model can be adapted to different countries and create new market opportunities for both current and new independent commercial aggregators. Opportunities and barriers for economic actors operating in the energy management sector, with specific emphasis on small and medium enterprises, will be also investigated and discussed.
Smart City Expo World Congress is an event that has become the industry leader in smart cities.This year, the World Congress will take place on 14 – 16 November 2017 in Barcelona and will introduce, debate, and share pioneering ideas and approaches from the most highlighted speakers. The SCEWC is a meeting point for companies, government, entrepreneurs and research centres to show, learn, share, network and gather inspiration to support the development of the cities of the future.

Increasing renewable energy uptake will bring the need for greater energy flexibility and storage in order to match supply with demand. What if buildings could play this role, by offering thermal storage capacity that is currently untapped?
The event “Energy storage in buildings – the potential in the Energy Package” will explore this concept, and make the link between the different elements of the Energy Package, from energy performance of buildings (EPBD) to electricity market design.
The event will take place on September 25, 2017 in Brussels. More information is available here.
Intersolar Europe is the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry and its partners. It takes place annually at the Messe München exhibition centre in Munich, Germany and focuses on the areas of photovoltaics, energy storage and renewable heating, as well as on products and solutions for smart renewable energy. The accompanying Intersolar Europe Conference consolidates selected exhibition topics and showcases international markets, financing and pioneering technologies. The conference is chaired by Dr Pierre-Jean Alet from CSEM, a partner in the SABINA project.
Since being founded 26 years ago, Intersolar Europe has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners in the global solar industry.

From 14 till 16 March 2017 the 11th International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES 2017) will take place together with the Energy Storage Europe (conference + expo) in Düsseldorf, Germany. The three-day program is packed with presentations, discussions, talks, exhibitions and poster talks. By connecting the topics “science” and “business” and bringing together those two target groups more input, more knowledge, more contacts are guaranteed.
The established International Renewable Energy Storage Conference presents the latest research results and development experience for renewable energy storage. Presenters analyze and discuss the applicability and need for storage in the power, heating and transport and mobility sectors. The latest technological improvements as well as the framework conditions for the use and integration of energy storage systems are explored, while particular attention is given to the applicability in decentralized energy supply systems.
