Energy Equilibrium

The project Energy Equilibrium helps public authorities and energy suppliers secure uninterrupted energy supply by developing solutions to store renewable energy.
In the spotlight

We invite municipalities and other stakeholders to get involved in project activities:

  • seminars, webinars, workshops
  • discussions, experience exchange events
  • training and information materials
  • full use of the developed Energy Equilibrium platform within your municipality

If you are interested in participating, please fill out this short form so you do not miss any invitations to join the project activities!

Project summary

To compensate the variability and non-controllability of seasonally generated renewable energy (RES) (daily fluctuations in solar radiation intensity, wind speed, etc.) development of sufficient energy storage infrastructure in the regions will play a major role in transforming RES supply potential into reality. However, local public authorities that are responsible for creating an enabling policy environment for RES infrastructure development in regions encounter numerous challenges and uncertainties in deploying sufficient energy accumulation that often remain unanswered due to a lack of knowledge and on-site capacity, which in turn significantly hinders the regional path to climate neutrality. This project aims to develop an Energy Equilibrium Platform – an interactive and easily applicable tool to support municipalities and energy suppliers in decision-making related to the development of efficient action plans to accelerate local RES utilization in the region. Energy Equilibrium Platform will help municipalities to:(1) Identify the most optimal RES storage development strategy and its impact on energy flexibility in the region; (2) Help to determine the key factors affecting energy equilibrium (balance between the produced and the consumed energy) in the region; (3)Help to develop policy mechanisms and action plans to enhance local RES in the region; (4)Help to anticipate risks and avoid making expensive mistakes (e.g. investing in inappropriate technological solutions).
