In order to accelerate the “green and digital” transition and the achievement of carbon neutrality objectives, the EU has launched a profound transformation of the global energy system in the regions of member countries. In this context, the research project, which addresses the reduction in impacts from climate change through mitigation and adaptation processes and strategies, has the objective of activating a demonstration (Living Lab) in the SNAI pilot area “Grecanica” (RC). It envisages developing and transfering advanced sustainable technologies for “energy self-production of communities”, with processes enabled by technologies belonging to advanced systems for customised production and distributed generation from renewable sources, smart grids and digital flow management.
