It was an exciting opportunity to meet in person all the consortium partners coming from different countries. The discussion focused on activities planning and execution to share innovative perspective on data-driven intelligence system for value chains optimization.
Synergies promotes the creation of a data-driven intelligence ecosystem that not only supports energy operators in improving efficiency in supply operations but also enables prosumer inclusiveness in market transactions.
The project delivers data-driven and intelligence-enabled digital solutions and energy services to effectively contribute to data re-usability for business value generation and energy system decarbonization. Synergies integrates cutting edge big data management technologies, enabling interoperable communication and exchange with heterogeneous data sources and platforms.
The consortium is composed by 22 partners from 11 countries and involves partners with multi-domain expertise and interdisciplinary knowledge in four areas: (i) Energy systems & Services, (ii) Big Data Management, Interoperability, Security & Analytics, (iii) Business Innovation & Energy Markets and (iv) Social Sciences and Humanities, with focus on citizen engagement and legal issues. Taking into consideration the four knowledge and expertise areas mentioned, the partnership has been built with the aim of covering the whole value chain and providing the competencies, knowledge and expertise needed for its successful implementation.
The project is funded within the European Union’s Horizon Innovation Actions - Sustainable, secure and competitive energy supply CL-5-2021-D3-01 under Grant Agreement: 101069839.
