News from the latest Board meeting:

  • The 6th International Seminar on ORC Power Systems was held from 11th to 13th of October in a virtual format. A total of 220 attendees, more than 80 oral presentations and around 30 poster presentations. Despite the virtual format the feedback on the conference was very positive and especially the virtual technical tours were very much appreciated by the audience. The opening keynote on “Pushing forward with Research & Innovation – the role of the EC” by Daniel Maraver from CINEA as well as the ORC market report by Marco Astolfi and Christoph Wieland were only two of the highlights of this year’s conference. The proceedings are available as open access via the TUM library and can be accessed here. The conference awards have been selected and the winners will be informed – an official announcement will follow via the conference communication channels. The KCORC board thanks the organizers and all participants for their contribution to this successful event.
  • The Board welcomes the new and competent Chair of the Editorial Committee, Martin White
  • The Board welcomes the new and equally competent Chair of the Committee for Standard and Regulations, Marco Astolfi
  • KCORC is currently scouting for competent volunteers to contribute to the works of the Board. Please be most welcome to discuss with anyone of the Board if you are interested.

Henrik Öhman,
KCORC chair
