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.
SABINA project partners met during M6 meeting in Sevilla, Spain, at the premises of Schneider Electric. Apart from the overview of the work achieved during last 6 months in technical Work Packages, two workshops took place dedicated to business models and test site scenarios.
The consortium had also the opportunity to meet with its three External Advisory Board members, who took part in interesting discussions and provided valuable advices for SABINA’s future work.
SABINA partners will meet again in autumn 2017 in Denmark.
The SABINA project was kicked off at the beginning of November 2016 during a two day meeting that took place in Prague, the Czech Republic.
The main objective of SABINA is to provide a beyond state of the art technological solution that brings services to the medium and low voltage grid and will be on the market within five to ten years. The project consortium consisting of 9 partners is led by Smart Metering System plc. The project is funded by the EU Research and Innovation programme H2020 and will last for four years. All project related information will be regularly published on its website: www.sabina-project.eu.
