Peer-to-peer energy trading based on blockchain technology

An energy trading demonstrator was put into operation as part of the Pebbles project – a practical application under laboratory conditions. Pebbles analyzes and tests the effects of blockchain technology on the energy market. Local peer-to-peer energy trading not only assumes a practical function in controlling the supply and demand of the decentralized energy system. It is also a further indication of the business and monetization opportunities the "energy flexibility market" is already opening up today.

IREN2 - Future viable networks for integration of renewable energy systems

As part of IREN2, Siemens and its consortium partners are investigating new types of  grid structures and ways of operating them based on technical and economic criteria. The goal is to find out how energy systems involving distributed electricity generation and additional components can be technically and economically optimized. In addition, microgrids – smart, self-contained regional electricity distribution systems – are being trialed as islanded grids, as are their use and operation as “topological power plants.”

Circular Glasgow

Circular Glasgow is an initiative of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce. It is a movement to inspire businesses of all sizes to innovate and become future-proof by adopting circular strategies.

Connecting companies across the city, they help them to open up new revenue streams, increase competitive advantage and realise financial savings using a range of practical initiatives.

Two key initiatives include the Circular Hub and Circle Lab:

EU Ecolabel

Established in 1992 and recognised across Europe and worldwide, the EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their life-cycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal. The EU Ecolabel promotes the circular economy by encouraging producers to generate less waste and CO2 during the manufacturing process. The EU Ecolabel criteria also encourages companies to develop products that are durable, easy to repair and recycle.

Keep our Sand and Sea Plastic Free Campaign

A new campaign backed by tourism businesses and local municipalities is aiming to eradicate single-use plastic from coastal areas – starting with the Ayia Napa, Protaras and the wider Famagusta region of Cyprus.

The campaign, “Keep Our Sand and Sea Plastic Free”, highlights the link between single-use plastics – especially from hotels, bars, restaurants and cafes – and beach and marine litter.

Sustainable Agriculture, Food and Environment (SAFE) Platform

SAFE was created with the mindset that through strategic partnerships and the implementation of projects in Latin America, resources, and experiences dedicated to promote, design, and implement sustainability practices can be optimized and have a greater impact in transforming coffee and cocoa landscapes. Their structure allows them to work on local, national, regional, and international stages addressing the specific challenges and opportunities present at each level.
