STORIES project workshop
The main objective of the STORIES project http://www.storiesproject.eu
is to facilitate RES penetration in islands, through modifications in the legislative and regulatory framework that will adopt energy storage technologies. Local workshops of STORIES project will be organised in parraleel with SDEWES conference in order to increase awareness of the wider public and local/regional authorities on the benefits that will derive from the adoption of RES in combination to energy storage for the local community.
The latest findings and project results will be presented including:
- Market applications for energy storage systems in islands - case studies
- Set of existing regulations and legislative framework related to RES implementation
- Cost-benefit analysis of energy storage systems
- RES and hybrid systems barriers assessment and recommendations to overcome them
- Investigation of tariff schemes for energy storage technologies
- Scheme for the market organisation of autonomous electricity systems
- SWOT analysis and Roadmap for the introduction of hybrid RES/Storage systems
Participation in workshop will be free for all participants of SDEWES conference and representatives of all local/regional authorities, RES companies, media, policy makers, RES developers, etc.
Please submit your registration for workshop on e-mail goran.krajacic
Chairman of STORIES workshop will be Dr.sc. Manos Zoulias
STORIES project is co-financed by the Intelligent Energy - Europe (IEE) programme and it is an official partner of the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign 2005-8.
BIOSIRE project workshop
BIOSIRE project http://www.biosire.eu/
aims to establish a shift
towards bio-diesel and electric propulsion for fleets, ships and special vehicles in tourist areas in Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Croatia and Austria. Local actions
are directed at market transformation and changing the behaviour of fleet operators, tourists and residents, farmers and potential suppliers of used cooking oils.
These actions cover the full production and distribution chain: fuel supply, distribution network, fleet operators and final users. Recommendations for new areas
will be formulated, in addition to a variety of transferability activities that will directly involve new tourist regions in project actions and stimulate their
launching of new programmes. Local workshop of BIOSIRE project will be organised in parallel with SDEWES conference in order to increase wider population awareness
and awareness of local/regional authorities on the benefits of collecting used cooking oil, producing biodiesel from used cooking oil and using hybrid vehicles in
tourist sector and National parks.
Project results will be presented at this side event including:
- Set of existing regulations and legislative framework related to biofuels
- Different models for collecting used cooking oil
- Experience from using Hybrid vehicles in partner countries and Croatia – case studies
- Used cooking oil potential in Croatian
Participation in workshop will be free for all participants of SDEWES conference and representatives of all local/regional authorities, RES companies, media, policy makers,
RES developers, etc. Please submit your registration for workshop on e-mail boris.cosic
Chairman of this section will be prof.dr.sc. Neven Duić.
BIOSIRE project is co-financed by the Intelligent Energy - Europe (IEE) programme.
Building a research career in the European Research Market:
EU institutional and financial tools
The main objective of this side event is to make the case of a good example of the implementation of the EU policy specified in the following institutional and financial tools: the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, the EURAXESS Services Network and the specific programme People of the 7th
The side event will be divided into two sessions:
The first session will focus on the good example of collaboration among the Greek EURAXESS Services’ Network, the Greek People NCP Network and the People Network project. This collaboration is of outmost importance in so far as the EURAXESS Services’ network plays a leading role both in spreading information on EU policies and instruments and in facilitating the adoption of relevant national policies.
The second session will focus on the institutional tool of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (C&C). The aim of this session is to increase the awareness of the wider public on the rights, roles and responsibilities of researchers as well as of their employers and funders. The C&C is a major component of the European Union’s strategy to stimulate employment and economic growth, by setting up a competitive, transparent and open labour market for researchers.
The overall objective of the event is to show affinities and synergies between the Networks involved leading to good practices that would help the promotion and the implementation of the above EU institutional and financial tools to the benefit of the researchers.
