Investment aid granted for the pre study "Smart grids in urban areas"
In October the Energy Agency granted funding for the prestudy of the research project "Smart grids in the urban environment in Stockholm Royal Seaport". The aid amounts to approximately SEK 13.4 million, of which 5 million comes from VINNOVA, and will help develop business concepts, detailed requirements and functional specifications for smart grids in areas such as:
• Active and energy-efficient homes
• Local renewable electricity in urban areas
• Energy Smart consumer behavior
• The design of future smart grids and energy storage
• Need to develop regulations and new market conditions
We are extremely pleased that we have received support to continue this exciting venture. With this project our aim is to find ways to lead and drive the transition to a more sustainable energy/society. A shift that is necessary for us to achieve the high-ranking environmental objectives for 2020, says Thomas Wall, Head of Research and Development at Fortum
The research project will test a flexible grid with low emissions in Stockholm. The district will also serve as a national test area for the development and installation of real-world environments.
Consumers will have a key role in the transition. The new grid will allow customers to take a more active role in their electricity consumption, so it is about finding solutions that facilitate and are intended for customers to live eco-friendly, "says Tomas Wall
Stockholm Royal Seaport is one of several projects through which Fortum operates work towards sustainable development. At Lindhagensterrassen in Stockholm and in Glava, Sweden different techniques are being tested. Read more at fortum.se
