As part of the work of developing new green solutions, Insero hosted all 25 partners in the European Horizon 2020-project, SABINA, in Horsens on the 7th-9th of November 2017.
SABINA is a research and innovation project across Europe. The purpose of the project is to develop new technologies which can create an efficient and environmental collaboration between the need for electricity and the excess energy from buildings – also known as thermal inertia. SABINA is working with these aspects through aggregators that provide flexible and balanced services for the power system.
The project’s partners meet with each other twice a year which ensures that everyone ends up hosting a meeting. This time the job of hosting the meeting lay with Denmark and Insero which pleased Team Lead for Software Solutions at Insero, Frederik Johansen:
“We looked forward to hosting the SABINA project group and getting the chance to show off our city, Horsens and the Green Tech Center in Vejle. Moreover, we were pleased to facilitate a lot of good discussions about the work we are facing.”
The purpose of gathering all the partners was, therefore, to create an overview of the work in progress of each team within the project group. This will ensure that everyone stays updated on the tasks awaiting.
”The project meetings and workshops in Horsens gave partners the chance to meet face to face and catch up on recent progress in several areas, as well as plan future work. The first day was particularly productive with many technical conversations which will help our ongoing efforts to develop SABINA into an economically viable solution that, in the future, could be implemented across Europe,” said Project Coordinator, James Sharman.
Insero contributes with knowledge and experience
Inseros role in the SABINA project is to develop an aggregator which will guarantee that the information between test sites and the advanced mathematical models are exchanged. In addition, Insero will develop business models to ensure that the solutions created by the SABINA project can be put to practical use. Also, Insero contributes with two test sites (two public schools in Horsens and Green Tech Center in Vejle) which the participants will visit during their stay in Horsens.
Workshop for the solutions of the future
For the first time since the beginning of the SABINA project in 2016, the meeting between the partners will end with a workshop, arranged by IT-Forum. Here, the participants will discuss how a business model based on the solutions of the SABINA project can be utilised in different countries and, thereby, create new opportunities.
