The main achievements in S1 are gathered in this news item to explain the first semester in RESINDUSTRY project's life.
- The Kick-off meeting for launching RESINDUSTRY was celebrated on 22-23 October 2019 in Prague. On the first day, project meeting was held to share experiences and planned project actions. In the morning of the following day, a workshop focusing on regional policy instruments and good practices was held at the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic. The second half was dedicated to group work and everyone actively contributed to reviewing and evaluating good practices and defining indicators for individual types of RES.
In the afternoon the participants visited a Luna Plast manufacturing site in Hořín near Mělník, where low and high-density polyethene is used to produce various types of pipes with a wide range of applications. The processing of plastics by extrusion and injection is energy-intensive, so the company has installed 300 kW photovoltaic panels on the roofs of the production halls, covering approximately a quarter of the overall energy consumption.
- Stakeholders' meetings in Extremadura: the Spanish partners have undertaken two meetings with entities that are key actors in the Policy changing process. The first one was a meeting with the Energy Cluster of the region and the second one with the Centre for the Scientific and Technological Research of Extremadura (CICYTEX).
- Participation of RESINDUSTRY in Interreg Europe Projects Seminar. The RESINDUSTRY team attended the valuable sessions organised by the programme to go in-depth on financial reporting, activities & results and project communication.
