Positive Energy Districts European Network (PED-EU-NET) | COST ACTION CA19126
The COST Action Positive Energy Districts European Network (PED-EU-NET) aims to mobilize researchers and other relevant stakeholders across different domains and sectors to drive the deployment of Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) in Europe through open sharing of knowledge, exchange of ideas, pooling of resources, experimentation of new methods and co-creation of novel solutions.
This COST Action will build up a PED innovation eco-system that helps to find solutions to the diverse challenges stemming from different domains. It will do so by bolstering dialogues among relevant stakeholders and stimulating collaboration along and across domains and sector-specific value chains. This is key to co-create solutions for the planning, financing, deployment, replication and mainstreaming of PEDs. It will harmonize, share and disseminate knowledge and breakthroughs on PEDs in different domains at a European level. It will explore various forms of governance involving public-private-people partnerships and provide insight into practical approaches for evidence-based governance for the development of PEDs. This will lead to increased knowledge sharing both within and outside European research organizations and encourage mashup innovation across academia, industry, cities and communities.
This COST Action is structured into four interlinked Working Groups:
WG1 PED Mapping, Characterization and Learning
WG2 PED Guides and Tools
WG3 PED Laboratories, Monitoring and Replication
WG4 Dissemination, Outreach and Exploitation
Fraunhofer ISE (coordination), LNEG (Vice-coordination) and more than 70 institutions from 35 participant countries.
PED-EU-NET is funding by H2020-Cost Action programme.
