As part of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) held in Brussels on 4-8 June 2018, LOGiC co-organised a session on "Solidarity Islands and Energy Communities: How Community Energy Alleviates Energy Poverty". Read More
Low Carbon Off-Grid Communities (LOGiC)
In a joint effort to pilot North-West Europe towards a low-carbon energy future, nine project partners have teamed up to develop a standardised model for renewables-based decentral hybrid energy systems (DHES) in the project “Low Carbon Off-Grid Communities (LOGiC)”.
LOGiC focuses on ‘energy remoteness’. An area is considered ‘energy remote’ if it is not connected to the main energy infrastructure. LOGiC addresses this problem with decentral hybrid energy systems combining different types of renewables, such as tidal, wind and solar PV with each other as well as with battery storage. As wind, solar, tidal are intermittent by nature and cannot guarantee security of supply in a single source approach, a hybrid model is used.
Such a model will enable cheaper, cleaner and more reliable electricity for local communities, while empowering them to influence their local energy mix.
Three 'energy remote' areas in NWE will act as pilot locations for DHES systems:
The bottom-up approach and involvement of local communities in LOGiC will be underscored by a ‘Community of Practice’, which is launched to collect feedback on DHES from all stakeholders.
