DELTA at ECEEE Summer Study 2019

ECEEE 2019 Summer Study
European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy Summer Study 2019
3–8 June 2019
Belambra Presqu’île de Giens, France

ECEEE’s biennial Summer Study has established itself as one of the key energy efficiency events in Europe. It delivers comprehensive evidence-based information on energy efficiency and is attended by around 400 participants.

DELTA partner and MD of e7 Energie Markt Klemens Leutgöb gave an insightful presentation on New business models enabling higher flexibility on energy markets. The presentation was based on a paper he co-authored with Christof Amann (e7) and Dimitrios Tzovaras and Dimos Ioannidis (CERTH).

In his presentation, Mr. Leutgöb discussed the expansion of Demand Response (DR) services to small and medium-sized customers / prosumers, digitisation as a main driver to lower transaction cost and the evolution of business models for the provision of DR services.

The paper is available here.

DELTA Plenary meeting 

The DELTA project partners gathered for the summer 2019 plenary meeting in Ispra, Italy 11–12 June 2019. The meeting was hosted by the Ispra-based partners at the Joint Research Centre.

X partners representing all 10 partner organisations gathered in the Northern Italian town to discuss the status of the project and to agree on next steps and future activities. The meeting was chaired by Dimos Ioannidis (CERTH), and the two-day agenda was full of interesting presentations given by the leaders of all work packages. The presentations covered key achievements made, potential issues and next steps in each work package.

The DELTA team is satisfied with the progress made in the first year of the project and looks forward to the next phase and the run-up to the pilots.

Ispra offered the consortium not only successful meeting outcomes but also beautiful landscapes and a generous dose of sunshine.

The next plenary meeting will be held in Madrid in October 2019.
