Impulses for the energy sector in the German-speaking countries

The international conference, organised by the project partners of the Alpine Space project AlpEnergy provided impulses to the energy sector in the German-speaking countries.

Energy suppliers and grid operators, operators of decentralised energy plants, scientists and decision-makers in companies, political bodies as well as a broad range of public experts formed a highly competent and interested audience.

The partners of the Alpine Space Project AlpEnergy and representatives of the model regions within the German federal program E-Energy ( presented and discussed their concepts. On the generation side, the latest technologies for the operation of virtual power plants and intelligent grids were in the focus.
