Energy Cooperation Platform

The vision of R-ACES is to support high-potential industrial parks and clusters to become ecoregions that reduce their CO2 emissions by at least 10%. They do so by exchanging surplus energy, making extensive use of renewables and bringing everything together with so-called smart energy management systems. 

Description/ Objectives 

R-ACES focuses on collective measures and clustering to increase the efficiency of industry. R-ACES aims to transform high potential and high impact industrial clusters into EcoRegions with at least 10% emission reductions. 

This project is a touchstone that, through cooperation, will condense the knowledge and experience gained through H2020 into a set of three focused tools 

  • An assessment tool 
  • A legal decision support for joint contracts 
  • A smart energy management platform for clusters 


The R-ACES project gathers some of the most relevant actors at European level in the DHC sector:  

ISPT; Condugo; Spinergy; Energy Cluster Denmark; Lombardy Energy Cleantech Cluster; POM Antwerpen; ESCI and Euroheat & Power
