Prospex Institute is involved in multiple work packages and plays an important role in STORY’s stakeholder engagement, knowledge sharing within STORY between partners, and setting the stage for constructive collaboration across Horizon2020 projects.
PI’s main activities lie firstly in designing and facilitating the European and national stakeholder workshops, focusing on market, policy, regulatory and consumer issues that have a direct influence on the roll-out of storage and smart grids in a European setting. PI’s method for mapping and selecting stakeholders, will allow for a varied representation of critical stakeholders from key sectors, including from business, policy and civil society. In combination with PI’s expertise in participatory processes, these interactive workshops will enable rich and varied inputs, identifying opportunities for new storage concepts and smart grid developments, the barriers this sector faces and the critical actions required to overcome them.
In addition, PI will enable and facilitate a cross-project dialogue between several Horizon2020 projects focusing on energy storage and smart grids, providing a forum for knowledge sharing in order to developed shared recommendations.
