Beyond pilots: Scaling up energy innovation in cities

THE SMART GRID POTENTIAL

  • West Suffolk Council will connect commercial and industrial prosumers into a multi-sector energy hub to exchange locally generated renewable energy and support local grid constraints.
  • Malmö Kommune is currently building a large parking lot that will function as local energy hub, integrating renewable sources, storage and EV charging in an efficient DC grid to cut power peaks and losses locally.
  • The city of Mechelen is setting up a mobility hub at the core of a local energy community whose assets will be used to provide flexibility to the local network and maximise self-consumption of local green energy.
  • The municipality of Amersfoort will establish a trading community where individual households will be empowered to exchange green energy with their neighbours.
