BIOENERGY 20202+ GmbH (BE2020) is a K1 competence center in the COMET- program. During the last five years, research fields have expanded from the gasification, combustion and conversion of biomass to the simulation and control of solar thermal heating systems and hybrid energy systems. An energy management system was developed in the last projects. A first version has already been implemented at a small heating grid; an improved version will shortly manage a multitude of producers at a demonstration site in Innsbruck.
