JRC Living Lab for testing digital energy solutions

DESCRIPTION

The living lab for testing digital energy solutions is a multi-stakeholder community at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission located in Ispra (Italy) - 2,500 staff, and Petten (NL) - 250 staff, committed to improving the use of energy across the whole site. This is achieved through the combination of a successful staff engagement methodology and the deployment of smart energy innovative technologies. We bring together colleagues with an interest in energy in their work environment and external partners who have new technology to offer, with the objective to work out effective solutions for improved sustainability and better quality of life within the site.
Technology providers, selected from an open call, have the unique possibility to come and test their ideas on our site and use our exclusive facilities. JRC colleagues become active users who give feedback and help co-constructing real case solutions.
