AlpEnergy is an official partner of 'Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign' PDF Print E-mail

The future landscape of European energy supply and demand will have to make much greater use of new renewable energy sources and focus more upon energy-efficient methods.

The project AlpEnergy – Virtual Power System (VPS) as an instrument to promote Transnational Cooperation and sustainable energy supply in the alpine space, has been recognized as an Official Partner of the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign and contributes in the area of Demonstration and dissemination projects.

The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign is a European Commission initiative in the framework of the Intelligent Energy - Europe programme, which aims to raise public awareness and promote sustainable energy production and use among individuals and organisations, private companies and public authorities, professional and energy agencies, industry associations and NGOs across Europe. The Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign wants to support these players  as a European actor committed to sustainable energy.

International congress for innovation
Stuttgart, April 15th 2010

The projects of the INTERREG Programme in Europe are meant to benefit from each other. In order to answer this purpose the Central Europe Programme, that is a co-project to the Alpine Space Programme, organised the “Cross Fertilisation Workshop Innovation” enabling chances to exchange know-how and generate additional benefit for the projects. The workshop took place on 15th April 2010 in Stuttgart, Germany. As a representative for the many other projects in the Alpine Space Ludwig Karg, head of B.A.U.M. Consult Munich, had the chance to showcase the AlpEnergy project.

The workshop was part of the congress of “Strategies for Innovation and Competitiveness in Europe”, which was opened by Minister for Economic Affairs Ernst Pfister. The congress was directed at giving new impulses to everybody, involved in the process of innovation. It focussed on two main issues: Know-how transfer between research and economy and the transfer of innovation within European regions. The European Commission promotes innovation processes with strategies and research programs: e.g. the 7th EU Research Framework Programme helping business companies or the European Territorial Cooperation Project with its sub programmes like the INTERREG Programme supporting key players on a regional level.

The guiding mission of the event was “innovation”, which is the key to competitiveness for business companies and research institutions in Europe. For each transnational cooperation in which Germany is involved one exemplary project was presented. The program committee chose the following:


  • AlpEnergy, Alpine Space Program
  • FASILIS, North West Europe Program
  • BASIC, Baltic Sea Program
  • I3SME, Central Europe Program
  • ACT4PPP, Central Europe Program
  • Innotrain IT, Central Europe Program

As Ludwig Karg pointed out AlpEnergy is an important contribution to the international discussion about Smart Grids. To use the existing grid at an optimum, Information and communication technologies (ICT) are supposed to make the entire power supply system smarter. Meeting the need for ICT solutions AlpEnergy demonstrates how Virtual Power Systems (VPS) can be implemented. It shows the way to an ideal balancing of power generation and consumption, which is the basic requirement for the connection of more decentralised and renewable energy power plants to the grid.

International Conference on smart grids
March 18th 2010 – Grenoble, France

The International Conference in Grenoble will offer the opportunity to discuss about the smart grids. In the future, smart grids will help integrating renewable energies and provide solutions for the management of power demand. They are thus part of the solutions as regards energetic and climatic issues. The compounding elements of these smart systems are enhanced distribution networks, smart meters, storage means, new services for consumers, producers groups, etc.

All these issues will be tackled during this day, with French, German and Italian representatives involved in various research and demonstration programs, as the framework of the European project AlpEnergy (Alpine Space Programme 2007-2013).

RENEWABLE ENERGY GETS "SMART": focus on Apine Space European Programme and Renewable Energies in Italy PDF Print E-mail

International Conference on Renewable Energies
Belluno October 15th - 16th 2009

Besides Consorzio Bim Piave of Belluno which organizes this meeting, all the partners of the Alpine Space European Programme, important societies and italian institutions are present to the event. The International Conference in Belluno will offer a central platform to discuss on AlpEnergy Project and sustainable energies in Alpine Space. It will be a significant chance to share Italian knowledge on electrical system and on renewable energies progess in this country.  

Mountain areas are ready to take on a leading role in the energy challenge which involves territories and institutions at different levels. This idea is central to the work of the partners of AlpEnergy Project. The aim is elaborating a management system which integrates small units of distributed generation into electricity networks, developing a model of intelligent network to be applied at local level.

International Conference within the Framework of the Project CO2NeuTrAlp

29 September 2009 - University of Applied Sciences, Kempten

The international CO2NeuTrAlp Kick-Off Conference offers a central platform for the discussion of the first project results and the potential of renewable energies for alternative propulsion technologies. Both technological and organisational concepts for sustainable mobility – foremost but not only - in the Alpine Space will be presented and debated. A vehicle fleet with electric or biogenous powered passenger cars, trucks, buses, pedelecs and tractors will be made available for demonstration purposes.

Apart from the project partners from France, Italy, Slovenia, Austria and Germany, about 200 international guests are expected, including decision-makers from local authorities, regions and companies, mobility experts, scientists as well as a broad range of public experts.
