In its "KlimaPlan 2050" strategy document, South Tyrol has set targets of 1.5 t/y of CO2 emissions and 90% of its energy needs to be covered by renewables by 2050.

These targets are achievable only in the presence of a strong reduction in energy consumption and a high penetration of renewable energy sources. INTEGRIDS will explore the concept of integrated energy networks defined as the synergy between thermal and electrical networks to enable high penetration of renewables in buildings and neighborhoods. INTEGRIDS will enable the development of robust and reliable technologies and control strategies that can effectively respond to climate and usage dynamics through a high level of energy flexibility to maintain maximum energy and functional efficiency. The main objectives are: - the definition of the concept of energy flexible buildings and neighborhoods - the structuring of environments for the modeling of integrated networks, technological solutions and ancillary services - the realization of an experimental infrastructure for the real time emulation of urban contexts where to implement the integrated networks of the future - the active involvement of stakeholders through the work of the Project Advisory Board The innovative approach of INTEGRIDS will allow to increase knowledge in a "knowledge intensive" area identified as strategic in the "smart specialization".

Eurac Research logo

Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol) with researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields who come from all over the globe. Together, through scientific knowledge and research, they share the goal of shaping the future.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
