Energy Platform Living Lab (EPLL) is an independent non-profit association engaged in promoting energy solutions in South East Europe through a network of utilities, agencies, industries and academia.
EPLL’s founding partners are the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies of Skopje and Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computing of Mostar.
EPLL’s core partners are the University of Montenegro, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Faculty of Engineering Rijeka. In addition, EPLL has an Agreement on cooperation with UNIMED – the Mediterranean Universities Union, an association of Universities from the countries of the Mediterranean basin. UNIMED consists of 103 associated Universities based in 24 countries of the Mediterranean.
As an independent facilitator we are engaged in promoting energy solutions in South East Europe through a network of utilities, agencies, industries and academia.
While technology is a fundamental driver, it has become increasingly clear that the availability of technology is not itself sufficient to accelerate a clean energy transition. In order to find a balanced form of development, we need a long-term vision together with the ability to challenge the "old" paradigm. EPLL is based on two premises. The first, experimenting in real life environment and second, the inclusion of all the stakeholders through the whole "life-cycle" of the R&D innovation project.
