WORKSHOP: Showcase of the E-LAND Toolbox in Port of Borg

Event postponed – New date coming soon!

The E-LAND project is funded by the European H2020 program and aims to explore the challenges the energy sector is facing by developing a solution which combines the technological, social, and business aspects. This solution will be modular in design, considering replicability and scalability for later use in future projects. The E-LAND project has therefore encompassed three pilots in Europe and two in India with different locations, different regulatory regime, and operational functions.

Workshop at an industrial port with multi-vector energy systems

Date:  October 18th, 2022  New date coming soon!

Participants: E-LAND members, invited parties including local companies and ports

Venue: Fredrikstad Handelsstands Forening, adress NygaardsGata 5. Excursion at Port of Borg (Google maps link:

What to expect

The port of Borg has participated in the Horizon 2020 project E-LAND as a pilot site since 2019. Now that the four-year project is nearing its end, the E-LAND project and the port of Borg is hosting a workshop to show interested stakeholders the results and experiences of implementing the E-LAND toolbox.

  • Reduction in peak power from their local energy system
  • Investment planning for Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) Charging and increase in local Solar PV production
  • Community interaction on defining de-carbonisation vision of a port area
  • Business models with electrification of heavy-duty vehicles
  • Discussions around high electricity prices and need of optimisation systems
  • Licensing opportunities and business deals for acquiring such services


By participating in this workshop, you will get a thorough understanding of what the E-LAND toolbox has to offer, and how it may impact your energy community or business. Or maybe you will be inspired by the experience of Port of Borg to find the solution that makes sense to you. Either way, this is an opportunity to learn from a large industrial business’ efforts, in becoming more energy efficient by managing their energy consumption and production.

Capacity is limited to 50 seats for physical participation. Secure your participation by filling out the form below before October 7th.

This event is organized with the support received from Research Council of Norway with the project number 333143. E-LAND H2020 project with project number 824388 supports the organization by providing the expert speakers.
