Research projects

Auctions for renewable energy (AURES):

AURES is a European research project on auctions for renewable energy support (RES) in the EU. The general objective of the project is to promote an effective use and efficient implementation of auctions to improve the performance of electricity from renewable energy sources in Europe.

Funding: Horizon 2020

Intelligent Community Energy (ICE): 

A research project working ​to improve, develop and promote new smart solutions for energy production, storage and consumption for an island or remote community.

Funding: Interreg VA France (Channel) England
