To create a more sustainable future, we need to utilize local, renewable energy sources and use energy in a smarter way. Concurrently, people show an increased interest in producing their own electricity, mainly via solar cells on their roofs. This is why we have kicked off a development project, where we’re trying to make Communities in Sweden become self-sufficient with renewable electricity. Simris is the first, and currently the only, project.
Moving towards a new Sweden
With the local energy system in Simris, we’re making a small countryside community self-sufficient using electricity from solar panels and wind. In the future, we’re hoping to use the same technology in other places – for example on a city block or a small island in the ocean. It is a complement to today’s energy systems, with their large, central power plants and long transport distances.
