ENSEA Networking Event
June 25, 2013
9:45 am - 1:30 pm
To reach the “20-20-20” climate goals, Europe is increasingly generating renewable energy through technologies such as solar panels and wind turbines. Renewable resources are, however, dependent on weather patterns and therefore generate variable amounts of power over time. In order to provide secure energy systems which delivers energy when we need it, renewables have to be used in conjunction with ‘back up’ power sources, which can ramp up generation quickly to meet peak demands, while managing demand by using smart grids and by hydro-based balancing services.
Since energy is a cross border issue, countries and regions have to cooperate. To create an integrated system, research is vital. Many research institutes focus on the subject of energy transition. There fore the European North Sea Energy Alliance ( ENSEA) decided to bundle their expertise and initiate additional integrated research on cross border issues such as balancing energy, energy infrastructure, technology and innovation.
ENSEA is a partnership of four regions situated around the North Sea. The regions are as follows:
- Northern Netherlands
- Scotland (United Kingdom)
- Wachstumsregion Ems-Achse e.V (Germany)
- Rogaland (Norway)
Goal of the ENSEA Networking Event is to introduce the project to an European audience, exchange with other Regions of Knowledge (energy) projects and to connect to other European funds.
