The exchange of energy across company borders – which is becoming possible through regulatory changes – presents new opportunities for CO2reduction and the competitiveness of industry. The flagship project InduGrid creates a platform for mapping indust-rial energy consumption and generation in a spatial context. It establishes three test beds for industrial energy communi-ties and develops and validates new business models.
