S-PARCS will consist in several deliverables that will be published during the project activities by different partnes. This page lists the deliverables that will be published in each work package. To learn more about a deliverable, click on it! Only public deliverables are detailed.

WP1: Communication & Dissemination Plan

The three deliverables of WP1 serve as the starting point for S-PARCS. They will show possible energy cooperation solutions implementable in industrial parks, discuss barriers towards their implementation and review best practices and methodological approaches.

D1.1 : S-PARCS solutions inventory (10/2018)

In the present report, various energy cooperation/services solutions are presented which could be qualified for mutualised procurement and utilisation: the document is combined with an excel file intended to guide the reader through the proposed solutions according to filtering options. 

Summary 

“S-PARCS solution inventory” lists multiple solutions qualified for mutualised procurement and utilisation. The various options identified during the preparation of this work have been clustered in five main fields:  

  • Energy Infrastructures and Installations  
  • Information and Communication Technologies  
  • Logistics and Mobility  
  • Managerial Actions  
  • Contractual Instruments  

Under these topics, different solutions have been analysed and their main characteristics described. The options presented in this report do not consider barriers, boundaries conditions and other restraining factors, to enable an unhindered view on technically feasible solutions. The report presents the identified solutions in detail as each one of the identified options is described both with regards to its general attributes and its potential in the framework of energy cooperation in the industrial parks.  

The ultimate goal of this report is the creation of an inventory to be used by park managers and/or company owners willing to enhance the competitiveness of their business, to further integrate the local community and/or to make the park design more attractive. An Excel file has been prepared and it is intended to be exploited along with the present report: it guarantees the possibility to easily browse the inventory thanks to filtering options.

This working paper comprehensively identifies, summarizes and clusters manifold barriers associated with various solutions of energy cooperation and mutualized energy services.

It is assumed that barriers towards renewable energy and energy efficiency measures that are relevant to the single-company case are also relevant to energy cooperation between two or more companies. Nevertheless, this study focuses on those barriers that are relevant to the collaboration of two or more companies. The listing includes 5 main clusters, such as Technical/Engineering, Economic, Information, Social/Managerial and Framework Barriers. It is complemented by 5 sub-clusters.

D1.2 aims to provide a comprehensive list of barriers to help companies and park managers to actively avoid or avert them. Another intention is to identify opportunities for innovation, which are often directly derived from a detailed discussion of the barrier.

The results presented in this working paper support identifying and designing energy cooperation solutions, which can be implemented in the S-PARCS Lighthouse parks, build the foundation for recommendations for changes or amendments of regional, national or EU wide regulations and identify the scope of innovations, which can help to overcome the detected barriers.

D1.3 : Review of best practices and methodological approaches - Criteria and Solutions (12/2018)

The review of best practices is the last step in the assessment of the state of the art of energy cooperation in industrial parks. It identifies real-life examples of the solutions listed in D1.1. S-PARCS solution inventory, to help Lighthouse Parks improve their energy efficiency through collaborative approaches.

 Summary

The best practice identification has been conducted by utilising a step-wise method, starting with the identification and a brief description of a compendium of best practice candidates (26), which are evaluated and scored against a set of selection criteria that have been decided according the Lighthouse Parks’ expectations. “Meeting the demand”, “successful implementation”, “cooperative approach”, and “replicability and scalability” are the factors assessed to pick the most adequate ten best practices are selected:

  1.  Wastewater treatment plant with phytoremediation plant and solar power plant (IT)
  2.  Rubí Brilla – joint energy management (ES)
  3.  Joint purchase of electricity – Spanish Foundry Association (FEAF) (ES)
  4.  Underground thermal energy storage (UTES) (NO)
  5.  Industry Park of Sweden – Electricity production from waste heat (IPOS) (SE)
  6.  Chemiepark Linz utility monitoring system (AT)
  7.  Transport reduction in Tarragona petrochemical park (ES)
  8.  Harjavalta Industrial Eco-Park – Joint investment in energy efficiency (FI)
  9.   Joint management in La Torre park (ES)
  10.  Joint energy purchasing Industrial Park Association of Asturias (ES)

WP2: Envisioning innovative instruments and business models for enhanced energy cooperation

The findings of WP2 will be presented in four deliverables, that will adress instruments to overcome technical and non-technical barriers towards energy cooperation, business models to overcome financial and non-financial barriers and will give guidance on contractual issues for joint energy services and energy cooperation. Finally, WP2 will deliver policy recommendations based on the results of the legal, regulatory & standardization analysis.

D2.1 : Instruments addressing technical and non-technical barriers - generic results (01/2019)

Deliverable 2.1 is dedicated to the development of instruments for overcoming the barriers to the implementation of the solutions for joint energy services and energy, and it is developed from a general perspective, providing guidance to address the barriers for a broad audience.

Summary 

The document includes a selection of instruments to overcome barriers subdivided into five clusters, economic, social/managerial, framework, technical/engineering and information provision. Instruments are elaborated based on literature analysis, experiences from real cases and own professional experienceIn addition, actors possibly involved, feasibility of implementation and mitigating potential are described whenever relevant.

The results of such selection of instruments are multiple and can be appreciated from various perspectives.

Firstly, there are type instruments are able to address barriers of different clusters (i.e. training activities and awareness raising activities, increase of communication, engagement of an ESCO, energy audits, feasibility assessments and life cycle analyses, energy management system, monitoring of energy consumption, policy framework, gradual approach, identification of standards and BAT). Furthermore, results allow to identify the instruments effective in the short term and those particularly relevant for the barriers identified from the Lighthouse Parks. 

Overall, most of the instruments generated can be applied at different scales, starting from the single company level, up to the park level, thanks to the support of park managers and/or forms of collaboration between the companies within the park.

D2.2 : Instruments and related business models for the S-PARCS Lighthouse Parks (Confidential - 12/2018)

Deliverable 2.2 is dedicated to the analysis of both specific instruments aimed at overcoming barriers that impair solutions considered as potentially implementable by S-PARCS industrial parks, and suitable business models aimed at implementing the instruments identified.

Summary

The deliverable 2.2 aims at identifying barriers to the implementation of specific solutions for energy cooperation in each S-PARCS industrial park, and matching such barriers with instruments potentially applicable in each park. Focus groups and meetings were held in order to gather information for ad-hoc assessments, since both barriers and instruments were identified and analysed considering each industrial park’s perspective and needs – with a strong involvement of S-PARCS Lighthouse Parks.  

In addition, an analysis of business models (BMs) was provided, in order to understand how to effectively implement the energy cooperation opportunities identified by each S-PARCS industrial park while fully accounting for instruments and related barriers. Different BMs archetypes were identified and energy cooperation opportunities were grouped accordingly, in order to properly detail the features of the main components of each BM. 

The conclusion of Deliverable 2.2 underlined the similarity of paths for developing how to tackle energy efficiency and energy cooperation solutions across S-PARCS industrial parks. Such similarities strongly emphasised the importance to define a common framework to design a strategy for the implementation of energy cooperation opportunities without overlooking the peculiarities of each industrial park.

Summary

For more information, you can download & read the full deliverable 2.3 here.

If you have questions or comments, feel free to contact us at contact@sparcs-h2020.eu

This Guidance aims to provide evaluation elements useful for understanding and addressing contractual issues related to the implementation of cooperative solutions concerning the sharing of services and/or infrastructures within the Industrial Parks. 

The document describes the possibility of entrusting the contractual activities to a third legal entity, representative of the companies of the Park, able to support companies in technical, commercial and legal issues. 

The Guidance provides an overview of the main contractual aspects that deserve to be regulated within the contracts concerning the sharing of services and infrastructures. Particular attention is paid to the sharing of sensitive data, considered one of the main critical issues on the part of companies. In this regard, the Guidance describes the role that the third legal entity could play by resorting to the use of “confidentiality clauses” or the stipulation of “confidentiality agreements”. 

The Guidance intends to offer insights that take into account the legislation in force in the country where the Park is located and the specific will of the parties involved.

D2.4 : Policy recommendations based on the results of the legal, regulatory & standardization analysis (Pending - 01/2020)

Summary 

Performance measurement is one of the first steps in process improvement, and involves the choice, designation and use of specific performance indicators as metrics for the effectiveness and success of methods being examined in the most various contexts.  

Within this conceptual context, the aim of this deliverable is to develop a methodological framework that allows the assessment and monitoring of the performance of proposed solutions and instruments in the Lighthouse Parks of S-PARCS. 

The methodology is outlined considering the following key principles: 

  • Easily available and simple input data; 
  • Synthetic and immediate representation of results; 
  • Multi-criteria approach; 
  • Focus on industrial parks intrinsic features; 
  • Quantitative method. 

The methodology is flexible and it embodies a set of calculation rules yielding to a quantitative output. 

The KPIs are selected according to relevance, interpretability, timeliness, reliability, validity and materiality criteria and cover organizational, financial and economic, legal and regulatory, social, environmental and technical impact categories. For each KPI, clear definition, scale, unit of measure, instruments to measure, monitoring protocol and additional details are given. 

Results can be effectively represented in a radar chart, having axes corresponding to each impact categories. This type of graph allows an immediate and synthetic representation of the impact categories with high rates of performance, as well as those with low rates. 

In addition, the possibilities of weighting and of assessing performance of multiple solutions is studied to enlarge the field of application of the methodology itself and to include specific needs of end-users.

D4.2 : Data Collection Guidebook (11/2018)

The data collection guidebook details the variables and related ancillary information that has to be collected during the subsequent tests in WP5 to achieve a comprehensive and comparable data set for each of the Lighthouse Parks.

Summary 

The aim of this deliverable 4.2 is to specify the KPIs developed in D4.1, propose formulas for quantitative indicators and ways to assess the qualitative indicators. Thereby, D4.2 defines the variables needed either for monitoring the energy consumption, for assessing the solutions’ impact on the operations of the companies, and allowing a judgement of the financial parameters, i.e. all data required for the calculation of the KPIs, but also auxiliary data for allowing the certain process-specific assessments. In the deliverable, the variables and their properties are discussed and a brief overview of factors needed in the processing of the data (recording, storage, sharing, protecting) is given.

Summary

This power point presentation first, introduces the six S-PARCS Lighthouse Industrial Parks and describes their expectations related to the project. Secondly, it explains the methods that are being used to engage companies within the parks, which already led to the involvement of almost 70 companies. Thirdly, it describes the status of the 13 opportunities for energy cooperation that have been identified from the collaboration among the Lighthouse Industrial Park operators and companies, and the S-PARCS scientific partners. The opportunities range from building new energy infrastructure and installations to managerial actions and contractual instruments.

These opportunities and others that might come up as a result of the work that is being done on the parks will be further explored and assessed throughout the entire project and form the basis of the Energy Cooperation Plans (1 per park) to be produced until the end of the project. Feasibility assessments, assessment and collaboration with similar initiatives, training workshops, networking activities among Lighthouse and Follower Parks and internal park meetings are some of the tools that the S-PARCS partners will perform in the next months to build the adequate capacities for energy cooperation planning and implementation, to safeguard that the identified opportunities identified are duly followed-up, and to foster the creation of adequate framework conditions for the roll-out of these opportunities. A Report on the potential for joint energy services in industrial parks (D5.2.), and a Public report on the feasibility studies of the most promising joint energy projects in the Lighthouse Parks (D5.4) will be delivered in Month 18 and Month 30, prior to the elaboration of Energy Cooperation Plans for each of the six Lighthouse Parks in Month 33.
