E-on and Loccioni switch on the first energy island in Scandinavia

The future is local.

On October 18th, at Simris, a charming little town on the Swedish south-east coast, in the Scania Region, has disconnected the plug. The first energy island in Scandinavia has been inaugurated in the presence of institutions, companies and inhabitants.

With the LES project, Local Energy System, E.ON, the German energy giant, involved the inhabitants of a small town into something that tastes as future. As a matter of fact, the energy that feeds the houses, the shops and the life of this small seaside town will no longer be furnished by the national electrical power system, but it will be produced on site, exclusively renewable, without CO2 emissions and available when necessary.

The energy is produced by a 440 kW photovoltaic plant and a 500 kW wind turbine; in order to make the energy reliable and available also at night, there is a big battery and an intelligent distribution system.

The Internet of things and the intelligence of the energy are real. Intelligent is an increasingly important feature that we attribute to the energy, after accessible, reliable and renewable. In a scenery where the energetic islands and the microgrid will increase in number, where the needed energy is self-produced, where the complete independence from fossil sources is a concrete opportunity by now, where technology that guarantees the quality of the service and its reliability is increasingly important.
