From 29.-30. October 2018, the informal meeting of transport and environment ministers was organised in Graz, as part of the Austrian EU Presidency. As part of the informal meeting, a number of Austrian companies and projects presented their sustainable mobility solutions. SYNERG-E was part of the exhibition, focussing on sectorial integration of energy and transport by deploying local battery storage solutions at high power charging sites. As part of the exhibition, the new project video was launched.

Ljubljana, 25th-27th April 2018. SYNERG-E was presented in a joint project booth at the TEN T Days in Ljubljana. The joint stand focussed on innovative projects dealing with high power charging, local battery storage and green hydrogen, alltogether adressing the synery of sectors energy - transort - industry. Projects exhibited at the stand:

  • CEUC Central European Ultra Charging
  • TSO2020
  • H2FUTURE, and
  • New Energy Coalition.

During the 2.5 days of exhibition, stakeholders from EC, project partners and promoters, Ministries visited the joint booth to discuss the synergy of sector approach.

On 15th March 2015, the SYNERG-E project organised an event to discuss with experts the synergy of sectors and how sectorial integrated projects could become a pathway to decarbonisation of transport and energy. Around 30 experts from energy utilities, e-mobility operators, technology providers, grid operators as well as the European Commission were present at the event. The event featured not only insights of the SYNERG-E project, but also its “sister-project” ultra-E deploying high performance chargers in Europe, TSO2020, another synergy project with focus on Green Hydrogen as well as NeMo, a R&D project developing and testing local load management of EVs. All in all, the event made very clear that projects addressing the synergy of sectors are an important step towards decarbonising both transport and energy.
