IIT participate actively on «IndustRE» proyect. The flexibility of the industrial electricity demand has been identified as a potential that through innovative business models can facilitate further growth of variable renewable energy, while reducing the industrial electricity costs and contributing to the European energy policy goals. In this project the large industry is working with the renewable energy community to identify and implement business models for supplying variable renewable electricity to industrial users with flexibility in their demand, creating win-win situations. Several variations of the business models will be described covering different options like on and off-site renewable energy production. The business models will be adapted to 5 industrial sectors (chemicals, non-ferrous metals, cold storage, steel, and water treatment) and 6 target countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and UK).

Iberdrola and MIT Energy Initiative announce $10.3 million collaboration. This expanded collaboration follows Iberdrola’s multi-year sponsorship of MITEI’s Utility of the Future study and the corresponding report released in December 2016. The study — which MITEI conducted with Spain’s Institute for Research in Technology at Comillas Pontifical University (IIT-Comillas) — highlighted emerging trends in the electric power sector, where decarbonization, digitization, renewable energies and energy storage will continue to define the industry and determine a more flexible and efficient consumption of energy. More information here and here.
Tomás Gómez participated last 21 and 22 of June in «EUSEW 2017», the most important European conference dedicated to sustainable energy policy issues. Programme here.
