South Poland Cleantech Cluster

SPCleantech is very pleased to inform, that our application, submitted on the 26th February 2020 to the
EU Program, Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance, has been selected for EU co-funding.
Our proposal received 82/100 points and has been selected out of 216 eligible applications (30 have been selected in total). That’s a really good result!

The duration of the project will be 01/01/2021 – 31/12/2023. We must now keep our fingers crossed that the circumstances will allow us all to meet in person in Leipzig for our Kick-off meeting in January.

Title of the project is

“IMPACT / Building values-based innovation cultures for sustainable business impact”

with the vision of Envisioning the Future of Teaching and Training for Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Cluster as a technological challenge

 |  Category: Events

SPCleantech participated on 20.02.2020 in subsequent cyclical workshop organized by the shareholder in SPCleantech, University of Science and Technology in Krakow – AGH, devoted to the topic of energy clusters. This time the topic of the workshop was “Cluster as a technological challenge – cogeneration and installations”

The local balancing areas created within clusters contain sources / reservoirs that guarantee a reduction of energy consumption from the public network, and in the extreme case the autonomous operation of the micro-networks thus created. Their structure often includes sources based on various energy generation technologies, thus differing in operational characteristics. This makes their aggregation not an easy task and sometimes requires advanced energy flow management systems. The aim of the workshop was to provide knowledge about the operational properties of distinguished, often encountered local energy sources. Sample effects of existing installations were presented.
