Description :


Project results are expected to contribute to some of the following expected outcomes:

  • Advance the European innovative knowledge basis, technology base, technology leadership in the area of renewable energy-based off-grid energy systems, while creating evidence for policy making in the context of off-grid energy systems.
  • Improve environmental and socio-economic sustainability of the renewable-energy off-grid systems, particularly on geographic energy islands and/or in Africa and/or Central Asia.
  • Technology de-risk through prototype demonstration tested and validated in operational environment as a necessary step before scaling up at commercial level.
  • Reinforce the European scientific and innovation basis through international collaboration on off-grid energy systems while increasing the potential to export European renewable energy technologies and ensuring political priorities.


Demonstration of innovative plug and play solutions for system management and renewables storage in off-grid applications, which allow for increase of renewables penetration for electricity and heating/cooling and are deployable under different climatic conditions, while also addressing cost-effectiveness, energy poverty and security of supply and by promoting prosumer renewable energy in off-grid cities and communities (including on geographic islands).
