The DRIMPAC consortium gathered for a WP leader meeting on-line on the 15 of September 2021. The meeting lasted half a day, and it was a great opportunity to discuss the project development, sum up the issues arose due to the COVID-19 emergency and the strategy to tackle the final 12  months of the project. All the critical actions for the last  period of the project have been identified and reported. Action points have been set with a view to stay aligned with the project’s targets and contribution to the DR community. The consortium hopes the next meeting will be organized in person.

We are pleased to announce that we have participated in the Fast track on energy commuinities event from 28 September to 1 October. DRIMPAC participated in the event together with other projects. DRIMPAC's approach was presented by Guntram from E7 energy innovation engineering during the energy community business model, with colleagues from WHY Project, NEWCOMERS H2020, DECIDE Project, BECoop H2020, SocialRES and Compile Project.
