On January 9, the final seminar was held for the FLEXe Demo Ecosystem build-up project, which has served as one of the preliminary studies for Smart Energy Åland. Key results and conclusions are now compiled in a joint report with the project CEMBioFlex, which has investigated which role bioenergy CHP has potential to play as a flexible resource in the renewable power supply system.
Projects FLEXe Demo ecosystem build-up (2017-2018) and CEMBioFlex (2018) were ‘sister projects’, which both advanced endeavours to establish a demonstration in Åland Islands of a future flexible energy system based on 100% variable renewable energy production.
Both projects were funded by Business Finland, and several companies (UMP, Valmet, ABB, Fortum, Landskapsregering, and Mariehamns Elnät).
Implementation of the demonstration – Smart Energy Åland – will now be taken forward by Flexens Ltd.
