Description

A digital and flexible energy sector is crucial for EU to cut CO2 emissions by 55% by 2030. The Smart Energy Digital Innovation Hub (SEDIH) has a vision of being part of the ambition and at the same time improve the competitiveness of the local economy by stimulating digital transformation in the energy sector in the thirteen Municipalities in South Jutland in Denmark. SEDIH has a dedicated focus and builds on a strong smart specialization, which is already an area of growth in the region. The energy sector is strongly represented in South Jutland, but still has the potential to be strengthened even further in the coming years, as the strong energy sector has not historically been based on smart digitalization. SEDIH will increase the general level of digital maturity by 10%, strengthen the uptake of digital technologies and promote the development of new technologies to ensure a future intelligent and flexible energy system. SEDIH gives acces to state-of-the-art infrastructure and the possibility to work with some of the best in the field of AI, cyber security, HPC and IoT. Targeted test -courses, - facilities and living labs, train the trainer and knowledge brokerage projects create a structured collaboration and easy access for companies to RTO’s and universities. The clusters participation ensures a smooth facilitation and a commercial aim that creates the link to access to finance and investments. SEDIH is a one-stop shop when it comes to new knowledge, new technologies and new partners. SEDIH will provide European added value and promote collaboration across European EDIHs, giving companies the opportunity for broader support, matchmaking, best practice and access to new knowledge. SEDIH creates links with the other initiatives in the Digital Europe Program, e.g Green Deal Data Space, TEF for Smart Cities and Communities, Centers of Excellence for HPC Application and the European AI On-Demand Platform.
