CSSC LAB Danube project

City Storage and Sector Coupling Lab


CSSC Lab will prepare the ground for accelerating the up-take of CSSC solutions by Danube region cities which is at very low level because of public authorities possess little knowledge and shy the risks of investment. To overcome this barrier, the CSSC Lab project will implement a capacity building programme for municipalities and demonstrate the viability of CSSC solutions for medium-sized and smaller cities in the Danube region.

CSSC Lab will:

1) elaborate model solution+assessment toolkit for typical urban CSSC use cases,

2) develop/pilot a capacity building programme for municipalities with local trainings, webinars and city coaching sessions,

3) establish four CSSC demo-centers in different partner regions (HR, AT, SI, BG) to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of different CSSC solutions and

4) set up an online CSSC Lab learning platform for sustainable knowledge transfer.

Duration: July 2020 – December 2022
