"Inspiring and successful" - this is how our colleagues Camilla Neumann and Stephan Schwarzinger from the institute LIFE describe the Horizon EuropeOPENTUNITYproject kick-off at ETRA in Valencia.


The aim of the project with over 21 project partners from 8 nations is to further develop flexibility markets for renewable energies through interoperability, open standards and a systematic integration of the needs and desires of users. This is intended to promote decarbonisation as well as to increase energy security.

The hardware and software solutions developed in OPENTUNITY support grid operators, prosumers and other market players through:

  • Better use of flexibilities by consumers and prosumers

  • Better stability control and management for grid operators


JOANNEUM RESEARCH, represented by the Institute LIFE, is particularly focusing on user engagement and innovative business models in OPENTUNITY.
