Within the University of Cyprus, FOSS is the center of excellence focusing on renewable energy sources (RES) and in particular solar energy, energy efficiency and smart electricity grid. The centre is currently equipped with a state-of-the-art facility for monitoring and evaluation of PV technologies and Advanced Metering Infrastructure and is currently progressing with further installations for completing a large microgrid covering the energy needs of the University. This will transform the University campus to one of the few green campuses in Europe.
Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico SpA has been established at the end of 2005 to take over funded research activities of national and international interest and it started operating on January 1st, 2006. The company, formed by nearly three hundred fifty technicians and researchers, carries out research in the electricity and energy sectors, with strong emphasis on experimental applications. Focus of the mission is to ensure the technology transfer in order to address the national energy, environmental and economic goals. RSE is currently entirely owned by GSE \\\”Gestore Servizi Energetici\\\” S.p.A and represents an important public research centre in the sector.
The Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) is a center for research, innovation and education at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), department of Electrical Engineering. CEE covers a broad range of electric technologies including production, transmission, distribution and consumption of electricity as well the interactions with other energy carrier systems such as district heating.

TNO is a knowledge organisation for companies, government bodies and public organisations. It was founded in 1932 develop applicable knowledge and create innovations that boost the competitive strength of industry and the well-being of society in a sustainable way. They further offer specialist consulting services and grant licences for patents and specialist software. With more than 2,600 employees, it is one of the largest research institutes in the Netherlands and has its headquarters in The Hague.
Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust of the University of Luxembourg targets research and PhD education. SnT fosters interaction and collaboration with industrial, international, and government partners. The Centre’s strategic research agenda is formed around interdisciplinary research platforms (IRP) that provide an interface to external partners and a forum to define and launch research projects. SnT\’s Netpower Lab provides infrastructure for the implementation of prototype nano or micro grids based on a number of freely programmable voltage source inverters in the range of 5-10kVA. Netpower Lab is designed to integrate different communication devices, particularly with realtime or industrial busses (SCADA systems) controlling the power units.
The Institute for Energy and Environment (InstEE) represents one of Europe’s largest power systems and energy technology university research groups. Comprising 32 members of academic staff, over 200 research staff and students, and 18 technical and administrative colleagues, the Institute has four main research groups: Advanced Electrical Systems, High Voltage Technology, Power Electronics Drives and Energy Conversion, Wind Energy and Control. There are 45 bespoke, state of the art laboratories across key research themes of energy, health, manufacturing, and future cities – which support innovation and research demonstration. This is complemented by the Power Networks Demonstration Centre (PNDC) which hosts a fully operational HV and LV demonstration network and dedicated team of research, technical and support staff.
EnergyVille is an association of the Flemish research institutes KU Leuven, VITO, imec and UHasselt in the field of sustainable energy and intelligent energy systems. Our researchers provide expertise to industry and public authorities on energy-efficient buildings and intelligent networks for a sustainable urban environment. This includes, for example, smart grids and advanced district heating and cooling.
One of the objectives of EnergyVille is to become one of the top five European institutes in innovative energy research. In this context, the center was embedded in major national and international networks right from the start. It covers research, development, training and innovative industrial activities under one name and in close collaboration with local, regional and international partners.
EnergyVille aims to be a driver in the Thor science park in Genk in the areas of research, business development and employment creation. The research center is supported by the city of Genk, the Flemish Government, LRM, POM Limburg and the European structural funds.
