Workshop: E-LAND – Tools for the uptake of multi-vector energy systems. Study Case: Harbors in the energy transition. 

For invitees only

The workshop will present the E-LAND developed tools, in the context of harbors. As part of the workshop a case study will be performed following the framework provided by E-LAND’s replication toolkit. The solutions developed during E-LAND combine the technological, social, and business aspects of any energy project. With this combination the E-LAND toolbox can address all the challenges that local energy projects face, ensuring a good and resilient project development flow. 

Furthermore, the E-LAND project has implemented three pilots in Europe and two replication sites in India, which diverse regulatory regime and operational environments has served to test the adaptability of the tools to different scenarios. 

The workshop is part of a series of dissemination events and activities within the E-LAND Norway project, funded by Research Council of Norway (Project Number: 333143), and which is an extension of E-LAND focusing on bringing knowledge towards Norwegian actors from it. E-LAND has recently concluded and a great amount of learnings in multi-vector energy system decarbonization have been generated. 

  • Date: March 2nd, 2023 
  • Time:  12:00 PM – 16:00 PM 
  • Location Quality Hotel, Fredrikstad 
  • Target audience: Harbors interested in electrification and local energy systems, energy sector experts, energy project developers and managers, energy service companies (ESCOs), local RES suppliers, municipalities, local and regional policy makers. 



By participating in this workshop, you will get a thorough understanding of what the E-LAND toolbox has to offer, and how it may impact your energy community or business. Or maybe you will be inspired by the experience of the project partners to find the solution that makes sense to you. Furthermore, since the event will be physical sometime after the presentations will be reserved for networking with the other attendees.
