The HONOR project is carried out by a consortium of experts in a variety of fields from Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
TU Dortmund University’s Institute of Energy Systems, Energy Efficiency and Energy Economics (ie3) is one of the leading German higher education institutes in its field. The institute’s research and studies solve problems for a technically viable and sustainable electricity system of the future. The research topics cover the following areas: flexible transport and distribution networks, system integration of renewable energy sources, automation of energy systems, efficient use of energy, and electricity industry and markets. Therefore, technologies from the fields of control technology, power electronics, centralised, decentralised and regenerative energy sources as well as storage facilities for the special needs of future energy supply systems are being researched.

SWW Wunsiedel GmbH is a modern, innovative and future-oriented municipal utility company. SWW is responsible for electricity, gas, water, heating and telecommunication supply. Overall, the SWW supplies approximately 20,000 inhabitants in Wunsiedel (Northern Bavaria) and beyond. SWW and its subordinated service companies have been focussing on the consistent production, use and expansion of renewable energy and sustainable technologies (e.g. solar and wind energy, cogeneration, wood as raw material) for years. In the future, the regionally required energy will largely be generated and consumed on the basis of renewable energy. The city of Wunsiedel and its utility SWW strive to attain their goals of becoming energy self-sufficient, as well as to be able to decouple from the national and international energy market through synchronisation and decentralisation of their energy production and distribution. A midterm goal of the city Wunsiedel and SWW on its “Wunsiedel way to RES” is to open up a market for trading energy flexibility. In the long-term, SWW aims for establishing a system of energy communities in its area of supply. To support the “Wunsiedel way to RES”, SWW has started to invite endusers, customers and citizens to join in common RES projects. In the meantime, SWW has gathered loads of experience how to implement all necessary means concerning endusers, prosumers, energy communities, municipalities in all fields of participatory activity. SWW is working with the working group on societal cost of future energy supply of the EU and is part of BRIDGE.
