The project RENSOL is approaching its closing phase that we will highlight by organizing a number of activities in the margins of the Turku Baltic Sea Days on 1-5 June 2014 and EU-Russia Innovation Forum: Green Growth Economy on 4-6 June in Lappeenranta, Finland. Closing phase implies assessment process, and hence Baltic Development Forum is planning to elaborate a short evaluation report that will be based on some research and analysis of the project deliverables, interviews with the project stakeholders and summary of lessons learnt. The report will emphasize on the extend to which the project has managed to deliver on overall and specific objectives, engaged the project target group and delivered on expected outputs.
The evaluation of the project will also include arrangements of open discussion. In the margins of the XII Baltic Sea NGO Forum in Turku we will have dialogue with the relevant stakeholders on the lessons learnt and the way ahead. Join our discussion on 3 June 09.00 – 10.30 at the Break Sokos Hotel Caribia in Turku.
Furthermore, the project will be presented on another regional platform, in particular the 16th Baltic Development Forum Summit and the 5th Annual Forum for the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region on 3-4 June in Turku. The project representative will get an opportunity to speak on behalf of project at the break-out session on 3 June at 14.00 on “Smart Solutions for Smart Cities”, organized by Baltic Development Forum. Multi-level governance issues, multi-stakeholder process will be the issues for debating at the session and we are happy to provide our insights and observations from the project implementation process.
In addition, in view of the upcoming discussion on the EU-Russia Innovation Forum in Lappeenranta we will present the project as an interesting example of regional collaboration in close cooperation with the Russian partners. By taking part at the Exhibition we will share the knowledge and our experiences from the Project and meet other relevant stakeholders closely working across borders. On 5th June Baltic Development Forum will speak at the session on Energy Efficiency on behalf of the project. The debate will focus on the current trends and driving forces for energy efficiency actions as well on the benefits of introducing EE solutions into the building sector.
In the margins of above mentioned regional events the project partners will get a chance to meet and discuss the current status of the project and think together how we can make the project more sustainable by introducing new ideas.
Updates on the operational side of the project:
The installation of innovative energy saving equipment is coming to an end in pilot Lugovoye community (Gurievsky City District, Kaliningrad region). As for today, 20 solar panels with capacity 250 W are installed on the roof of building of Lugovoye administration. The solar panels are feeding 10 LED lighting elements located around the perimeter of the building. The innovative street lighting system is equipped with an invertor (5kW) and 8 accumulators (6W and 250 Ampere per hour). The system is controlled by a smart light automatization tool, which allows to control the process and to accumulate data about the lighting parameters. The lighting system would illuminate the sports ground located nearby and a part of municipal road.
During this week 10 LED lamps would be installed around the perimeter of the building of the kindergarten of Lugovskoye community. The lighting system would be fed from the local electric grid. The system will be equipped by automatic control tool.
All the equipment was delivered by Kaukomarkkinat Oy (Finland) and the installation was carried out by AES-Center (Russia).
