THE ROLE OF R2M INSIDE TRINEFLEX PROJECT

In the TRINEFLEX project, R2M has taken on the role of leader for work package 1 “End user requirements and project specifications”. Work package 1 defines the needs and requirements of the various process industries in which TRINEFELX is to be implemented with the aim of improving energy flexibility. This process is the flexibility audit and is considered an investigation process similar to the energy audit, with the aim of optimising energy consumption and guaranteeing the same level of production and quality. The flexibility audit will provide relevant information for the other work packages and in particular for work package 5, in which the TRINEFELX solution will be validated. R2M is an expert in this type of analysis and has extensive experience in energy management and auditing with a team of certified energy managers led by project manager Marco Rocchetti. At the same time, R2M will contribute to the valorisation process (WP7) based on its consolidated experience in these aspects in the EU projects. In this activity, R2M will work in close synergy with TICASS, Head of Exploitation and Communication, and will lead the task 7.4 “Education and Training / Capacity Building “. As part of this task, R2M will drive the development of a training framework composed of training sessions that will explain the project concepts to stakeholders.
