South Poland Cleantech Cluster

Janusz Kahl, CEO in South Poland Cleantech Cluster has been chosen by the European Commission as member of the Steering Committee for the project

„Skills for smart industrial specialization and digital transformation (SIS&DT)”

for Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) acting under the powers delegated by the European Commission EASME / DG GROW, which has been granted to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Luxembourg.

EASME is the largest EU agency managing, among others, EU funds from the HORIZON 2020, COSME, LIFE and ERASMUS+ programs.

The main goal of the task is to work out:

EU 2030 Common Vision on High-tech skills for SIS&DT

Members of the Steering Committee are responsible for:

  • monitoring of the work and reviews of reports developed by PwC
  • meetings in Brussels with EASME and the European Commission to review progress and discuss the preparation of periodic reports, which should be approved by the Steering Committee
  • participating in teleconferences
  • providing advice and guidance during the work

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.
