The site visit of Salzburg took place from 26 to 27 of June 2017. On the first day, the participants from the ReFlex project went to Köstendorf by electric car, a small village in the district of Salzburg, to learn from the experiments carried out in the frame of the Smart Grid community Köstendorf. The detailed discussions continued during dinner. On the second day, a workshop was held at the headquarters of Salzburg Netz GmbH, the regional multi-utility system operator for the city and the district of Salzburg. The objectives of the workshop were to present first results of the ReFlex project and get insights from experts on Smart Grid and Smart Energy projects as well as identifying topics of interests for the next Community of Practice (COP) workshop that will be held in October 2017 in Malmö.

The first Community of Practice workshop, organized in the framework of the EU-funded Project ReFlex, took place from the 13th to 15th of March 2017 in Wüstenrot, a village close to Stuttgart in Germany. This event brought together up to 30 participants: Swedish, German, Austrian and Swiss project partners, stakeholders and experts of the seven running demo sites participating in the ReFlex project. The main objectives of this event were to learn from the field-testing experiments carried out by the ReFlex partners, to identify and to discuss crosscutting issues (marketplace, stakeholders, and technology) encountered in the demo site regions and, furthermore, to agree upon research questions to be followed up.

The ReFlex project team visited the Powergrid demonstration site visits in Biel-Benken, Switzerland. The event was hosted by EBM, the local distribution system operator running the trial of GridSense, a fully decentralized residential management system. During the two days visits the ReFlex could learn about the control algorithm developed by the Swiss University of Applied Science and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) in cooperation with Alpiq, a leading Swiss electricity and energy services provider.

The demonstration site visit organized on the 23rd and 24th of November 2016 at the Ökopark in Hartberg, Austria, was the first event gathering research partners, practitioners and experts of the ReFlex project team. 20 participants of mixed backgrounds (sociologists, electrical and mechanical engineers, energy economists), coming mainly from Germany and Austria, could learn from the experiments carried out at the Ökopark in Hartberg. The presentations and guided tours, provided by the Hartberg demonstration project team, offered valuable insights into the different smart grid solutions on site and were followed by vivid discussions and questions from the attendees.
