Review: Joint workshop with Kyoto University7.4.2015, RWTH Aachen
A delegation from the Renewable Energy Economics Program of the Kyoto industry and a delegation from FINESCE discussed research issues and smart energy trends in Europe and Japan.Especially the platform approach was in the focus of the discussions.
It appeared that in both countries participants see a need to provide smart energy platforms to enable the development and the deployment smart energy applications and support the implementation of renewable energy sources. It was also discussed how such a platform can actually take over key market functions like replacing the energy whole sale market.
All participants agreed to continue the discussion in follow-up workshops within the next months.
