Europe Day!

On the 6th of May, NESOI was invited during Europe Day to the CORDIS stand in Berlaymont as an expert in renewable energy. An important meeting not only for the future of Europe but also to commemorate the signing of the 'Schuman Declaration' on May 9, 1950. It is considered the foundation of what is today the European Union. 

Astypalea, the place once chosen by Volkswagen Group as a testbed for new mobility services like ride-sharing and car-sharing, has announced that the Greek owned utiliy (Public Power Corporation, PPC) will build 3.5MW solar and 10MWh battery system project in the island. As reported by PV Magazine,  "The system will be fully operational in about 20 months and will cover half of Astypalaia’s electricity needs". In the next three or four years, it is bound to increase to the 80% of the island's electricity needs.

A group of nine people from six countries (Sweden, Estonia, Portugal, Greece, Spain and Denmark) travelled to the Italian island of Sicily between 27 – 31 of March to attend the Second NESOI Erasmus Short Study Tour (SST2), which was hosted by the Port Authority of the Strait of Messina.

From 28 – 30 March 2023, the European initiative BRIDGE celebrated its annual General Assembly gathering representatives from the Bridge community, which has 93 projects in total, with 53 running, and will soon reach 150 projects.

The Bridge community has agreed to contribute to the creation and development of a use-case repository, developing a dataspace connector for data exchange between local and federated spaces, identifying what data needs to be exchanged and why, and ensuring semantic interoperability between data models.
