Need-Owner Workshop - Demo
30th September 2020
Our consortium partners were delighted to demonstrate REDAP Proof of Concept System to a range of need-owners and external stakeholders from Austria, Sweden and Ireland. REDAP Version 1 was demonstrated to Dublin's energy agency, Codema, the City of Gothenburg Council (including Göteborg Energi), and Austrian Energy planning agencies, EKUT, and Klima-und Energie-Modellregionen Schwarzatal.
As the R&D team continue to work towards an operational and deployable software system, the invaluable end-user feedback which was received will be incorporated into the various software, analytical methodologies and use-case processes.
Stay tuned for further updates....
