INTERACT is an international research and innovation project with a cross-sectional collaboration of participants from research, municipal, and business field from Austria, the Czech Republic and Sweden. In is among four projecs selected by the first pilot call on Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) organised by JPI Urban Europe. INTERACT is focused on knowledge sharing and the creation of a road map on how to establish a specific Positive Energy District based on a holistic architecture approach, integrating needs and requirements of all stakeholders in this field. By the example of two focus regions in Sweden and Austria, a roadmap will be developed, where the local energy community is embedded into the whole power system in a secure, responsive and reliable way. This project is co-financed with the state support of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic within the Theta Program. The contents in brief:

A review of successful PED approaches 

Technical design of the energy community including interfaces between stakeholders and use-cases

Contraction models and regulátory framework

A roadmap for the implementation of specific INTERACT Energy Communities 

Stakeholder oriented disemination and communication

Positive Energy Districts (PED) are an integral part of comprehensive approaches towards sustainable urbanisation and the EU has set the goal of creating at least 100 PED by 2025. The INTERACT project is one of four international projects supported by the JPI Urban Europe pilot call that are focused on knowledge sharing in the field of PED development.
