Project development company, Flexens, has identified the opportunity to develop and build a full society scale energy system based on renewables on Åland – an island with ideal wind and solar conditions, an ambitious climate and energy strategy as well as a population dedicated to sustainability. The overall goal of Flexens is to pilot and demonstrate a fully renewable energy system which is feasible both technically and economically.
Åland is a unique place for companies to test new energy solutions and provides learning, innovation, and co-operation platform that connects the local authorities, business, and citizen with Flexens’ business and research ecosystem.
Technologies for demand response, flexibility marketplace, sector coupling (transportation, district heating), P2X, biochar, energy storage solutions.
Testing of RE production, sector coupling, demand response, and different energy storage solutions in real-life demonstrations. Also, other testbeds (e.g. Smart Otaniemi) are utilizing Flexens’ platform. Flexens provides Energy System Design services, committed local and Finnish shareholders, and citizen engagement activities to engage the whole society.
There are two DNOs, one TSO, three district heating networks, ferries. The current share of the locally produced wind power in Åland electricity mix is now 20 % and 65 % by 2022. There are also independent heat consumers and local industry.
