A digital marketplace that uniquely links the three energy carriers to electricity, heat and cooling is underway at Chalmers in Gothenburg. During 2017–2019, the Chalmers area is the test bed itself. Now we summarize our lessons. Partly about building and operating the system, but also our five policy recommendations for a faster energy conversion. You meet partners, experts and decision makers.
