June 26 – 27, 2015: First partner meeting on the island of Borkum

From  June 26 – 27, 2015 on the island of Borkum the first NETfficient partner meeting took place.

Within the meeting, the NETfficient consortium had the opportunity to learn and explore the island of Borkum – the site of project implementation – on a guided visit.

The tour across the island included visits to several different systems for energy generation, such as a photovoltaic park, two wind turbines, the energy control centre of the “Stadtwerke Borkum” as well as a private household with renewable energy system, combined of photovoltaic panels, storage device and an integrated energy management system.

Another main purpose of the meeting was to get an overview of the progresses so far and to plan further steps and tasks of the project. Therefore, the NETfficient consortium got together for e. g. reviewing each of the work packages and the use cases as well as evaluating envisaged project results for exploitation. Further, the partner “Stadtwerke Borkum” introduced itself and the Island Grid to the other partners.

In the end, the consortium together summed up the meeting results and specified further requirements and collaborative planning.
