Advisory boards

Besides the contribution to and management of projects, DuneWorks participates in four advisory groups:

Cassandra

In the future, the energy market will deviate significantly from the current situation. Central energy generation dominates the market, while in a few decades, local energy production is the main type of generation. Consumer will furthermore be producers as well and the energy supply will change due to inconstant energy supply of renewable sources. CASSANDRA aims to build a platform for the realistic modeling of the energy market stakeholders, also involving small-scale consumers to be prepared for the future scenario.

S3C (Smart Consumer, Smart Customer, Smart Citizen)

The S3C project envisions a future energy system that will be providing a vast variety of new energy related services on existing and new market places. Projects will be centered around end-users (consumers, customers and/or good citizens). S3C follows approaches from social sciences and behavioural psychology and include experience and know-how from other business areas (e.g. Marketing, telecommunication).

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is aimed at economic growth and the creation of jobs in Europe through research and innovation. Energy and sustainability are important topics to reach these goals. The advisory board thinks about issues concerning the long term energy research, the balance between supply and demand side, technology markets, the contribution of social sciences, and so on.

Energy Research Knowledge Center

The ERKC collects and analyses information on energy research projects within Europe. This way, the progress towards the European energy objectives is mapped and (policy) interventions are recommended to improve the progress. Acceptability and behavioural issues are essential factors for the success of projects and therefore emphasised by DuneWorks in the advisory board.
