On November 2, 2017 the University of Tartu (UT), Estonia, organised a demo day in its facilities.
At this event 26 researchers presented their innovative ideas to a broad audience from companies, business support and research organisations.
Toomas Plank, project partner from the UT, presented the Green PE demonstration pilots on Smart Houses within a workshop. In a 3-minute pitch talk, he introduced the photovoltaic (PV) test stations that are installed in Växjö, Sweden, in a typical family house and at the Physicum, a building of the Institute of Physics at the UT. The aim of these PV stations is to show the capabilities, benefits and peculiarities of advanced power electronics in application. Furthermore, it demonstrates the high energy efficiency of next generation power electronics compared with previous ones.
After the pitch talk, Toomas Plank invited the participants for an excursion to the Physicum, where the representatives from industry and the public sector received an impression on the highly effective performance of advanced power electronics.
Altogether, the workshop was a perfect opportunity for all participants to get to know more about the aims of the Green PE project and to identify new possibilities for cooperation and networking between research and the economic sector.
