August, 2018

Together with 13 partners from the business world, the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft has launched “Open District Hub e.V.” to develop an open, secure and scalable digital solution for fully integrated and automated sector coupling at the neighborhood level using locally-generated renewable energies. In addition to exploring intelligent technological ways to couple the electricity, heating/cooling and mobility sectors, the Berlin-based association also aims to promote the establishment of a suitable regulatory framework as well as to foster public acceptance.
