Research work

The technology for the sustainable use of renewable energy is developing rapidly. The South Tyrol Energy Association is therefore committed to innovation and is actively working with local partner organisations in the areas of research and development. Co-operation instead of confrontation – this applies equally to investment for the future.

Active research and development: the South Tyrol Energy Association is involved in developing more efficient and
location-oriented high-tech processes. As a member of the South Tyrol Car Sharing Consortium, the Association is working on a region-wide charging infrastructure for electric cars and collecting data and experience as a partner in the “E-Tyrol”
e-mobility project. The aim of the “Smart Heat” future project is to balance the use of local district heating against seasonal variations in consumption over the day. The Association offers “optimisation” of private and public heating systems and is involved in the “Smart Grid” initiative to improve distribution networks in South Tyrol.

Smart grids are a prerequisite for the efficient use of renewable energy, not only in South Tyrol. In March, therefore, South Tyrol’s future-oriented “Smart Grid” initiative was presented at a workshop of the European Association of Independent Electricity and Gas Distribution Companies (GEODE) in Brussels.
