Act4.energy is an innovation initiative and living lab to promote and facilitate projects and research for the energy transition. It builds and operates experimental environments and provides a framework for innovation in the energy and e-mobility sector. It supports research and development projects in development and testing of new products, solutions and services for the better utilization of renewable energy sources. Focal topics are the increase of PV-self consumption, sector coupling of power, heat and transport as well as the advancement of e-mobility.
Our goal is to provide possible solutions for the problem of volatile availability of renewable energy sources in a demonstration region that can be copied and applied elsewhere in the future. We want to increase praxis relevance of research projects, accelerate societal transformation processes and facilitate the breakthrough of renewable energy.
