The ECHO Project participated at the General Assembly of BRIDGE, a pivotal event uniting various Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe initiatives focused on Smart Grid, Energy Storage, Islands, and Digitalisation Projects. Held on April 9th and 10th, the assembly adopted a hybrid format, offering both in-person attendance at the DoubleTree by Hilton Brussels City in Brussels and online participation.

BRIDGE, an initiative by the European Commission, serves as a platform for consolidating insights and addressing cross-cutting issues encountered in demonstration projects. By fostering continuous knowledge sharing among projects, BRIDGE aims to overcome obstacles to innovation and streamline the future exploitation of project results. This collective effort is facilitated through four Working Groups: Data Management, Business Models, Regulations, and Consumers and Citizens Engagement.

Representing the ECHO Project in person was Francesca Tamburrini from partner organization EPHA, joined virtually by Sara Attanà from beWarrant and Dea Jelic from Pupin. Among the attendees was the ThumbsUp project, with whom ECHO has previously engaged in networking activities.

The ECHO Project remains committed to collaborating with key stakeholders and leveraging platforms like BRIDGE to drive forward innovation in sustainable energy solutions.
