Three years later, she joined the team as executive coordinator. Coopérnico defends a renewable, fair and responsible energy model and contributes to a social, environmental and energetically sustainable future, with renewable energy production, the commercialisation of electricity throughout the country and support for the creation of local renewable energy communities as its main areas of activity.
Jure is the Head of Etrel’s Research Department. In his career, Jure was Secretary of SUDEL (Regional organisation of UCPTE – European power systems union, predecessor of ENTSO-E), a member of UCPTE Working Group “Operational Statistics” and president of its sub-group “Power Balance”. Jure was also a member of Sustainable Transport Forum, Sub-group E-mobility Market of Services (STF SGEMS).
Jure has managed or was personally involved in elaboration of more than 100 studies for different power sector stakeholders. His professional expertise comprises project management, operation and development of power systems, feasibility studies in power sector, and operation and development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Jure led or is leading Etrel’s activities in eleven different projects in the field of electromobility in FP6, FP7 and H2020 programmes. He is also the author of Sustainable Urban Electromobility Plan for the Municipality of Ljubljana and the main contributor to the documents for public discussion related to electromobility published by the Energy Agency of the Republic of Slovenia.
Sara Arko is an anthropologist working in interdisciplinary research teams, dedicated to integrating people-centred approaches into the development of products, services, tools, or processes. Arko will discuss the H2020 project NRG2peers’ experiences with the establishment and operation of energy communities across Europe.”
She holds a PhD in cultural anthropology from University of Ljubljana and has been employed as a researcher at the Institute for Innovation and Development of University of Ljubljana since 2018, working on Horizon 2020 and Erasmus+ projects in the field of energy, mobility and university-industry cooperation. Her role in research and innovation projects is to bridge between anthropology and technical sciences, by researching the social contexts and engaging stakeholder groups into the development of project outputs via co-creative frameworks, thus ensuring that the values, needs and everyday practices are the starting point of a bottom-up innovation approach. In NRG2peers, a Horizon 2020 project aimed at supporting the uptake of peer-to-peer energy communities, she has recently led and facilitated a multi-sited, collaborative qualitative research in nine pilot energy communities across four EU member states.
