Based on a recent study published by EUSDR PA2 renewables will provide 50% of SEE power demand in 2030. With higher levels of utilization of RES energy storage is becoming the key in the next phase of the energy transition in all Danube countries. Even in the most advanced regions the introduction of innovative energy storage and sector coupling applications has just started to gain momentum. As these challenges particularly hit medium-sized and smaller cities, adequate City Storage and Sector Coupling (CSSC) solutions are needed to ensure efficient energy use and increased energy security.
CSSCLab prepares the ground for accelerating the up-take of CSSC solutions by Danube region cities which is at very low level because public authorities possess little knowledge and shy the risks of investment. To overcome this barrier, the CSSC Lab project will implement a capacity building programme for municipalities and demonstrate the viability of CSSC solutions for medium-sized and smaller cities in the Danube region.
Work-package leader Local Energy Agency Spodnje Podravje, coordinates and organizes the trainings for municipalities in the project region and invites all stakeholders for the capacity building workshop:
