CHALLENGES IDENTIFIED:

  1. Renewable energy - development of new technologies and/or system design of renewable technologies and large-scale integration of energy production facilities from different renewable sources.
  2. Hydrogen.
  3. Smart Grids - commitment to provide the electrical system with the characteristics of flexibility needed to cope with the complex management of renewable resources, integrating electrical technologies with those of information and communication with a view to the "Smart City" and "Smart Metering" (remote control of energy, gas, electricity and water distribution), favoring the proactivity of consumers (from "consumer to prosumer"), the efficiency, transparency and effectiveness of energy systems; lighting and infrastructures for electric mobility.
  4. Maintenance and Repowering - maintenance and repowering of plants with a focus on the extension of the life cycle of products (Extended Life Time); financial performance of investments in renewable energy; development of new applications of biofuels and recovery of materials and metals of electric batteries.

 

CLUSTER OBJECTIVES:

  1. Accelerate the development and expand the field of application of new renewable energy technologies in the Lombardy region, encouraging the emergence of integrated, multidisciplinary projects and the dissemination of best practices in off-shore platforms.
  2. Encourage the creation of virtuous eco-regions that aim to reduce energy consumption by at least 10% and promoting the transition to a circular economy model based on heat exchange and industrial symbiosis.
  3. Carry out actions to raise awareness and training for SMEs in the sectors concerned.
  4. Encourage and support the design of demonstrative and integrated interventions between industry, research and public administration to spread the culture of "maintenance and repowering" of plants with a focus on extending the life cycle of products (Extended Life Time) and recovery of materials and metals of lithium batteries.
