Work package 6

Pilot & Development in the Alps

Work package leader:Prof. Michael Lehning, EPFL

WP6 develops interconnected alpine P&D projects in Davos and Bagnes-Verbier (Graubünden and Wallis). Existing plans for infrastructure build-up or renewal will be augmented by EDGE components in a bottom-up and stepwise manner. The implementation of infrastructure will be guided by detailed modelling and monitoring to find optimal solutions, assess the impact on the existing energy system and to allow projections of up-scaling. WP6 will coordinate planning activities between stakeholders and aim to launch real-world implementation partly supported by additional SFOE funding.
