After more than three years, the AURES II project is reaching its end. All the partners in the consortium will continue to study and analyse auctions in the renewable energy sector and we are sure that new projects, in many different forms and shapes, will take on the legacy of this one.

In the meantime, the consortium wants to share the main results in a special final conference that will be held online on the 28th April 2022 between 12:30-17:30 CET. We all understand that traveling from different countries is still complicated due to the ever changing coronavirus pandemic and scheduling the participation in in-person events is not straightforward. We are sure there will be more occasions to meet in-person in the future.

We are going to share insights from the three-year project and discuss those in a series of panels complemented by external experts and speakers.
