A San Lawrenz pilot study on micro-grid operation has been presented at the PEGASUS Micro-grid Summer School Cagliari (Sardinia).
The Malta Intelligent Energy Management Agency (MIEMA) participated at the PEGASUS Micro-grid Summer School organised at the “Cittadella dei Musei,” Cagliari (Sardinia) at the end of May supported by Interreg MED Programme.
During this 2 days-event, MIEMA had the opportunity to exchange – with participants coming from different European regions – the final results of the San Lawrenz pilot case on micro-grids, and to discuss how micro-grids may optimise the use of local energy resources and enable the zeroing of the carbon footprint of Municipalities and Communities.
The aim of the Summer School was to cover most of the functionalities of the micro-grid concept and its different modes of operation with the current technologies, aligned with the European Commission’s 2030 policy framework for climate and clean energy, pointing to the electricity decarbonisation and to the local/regional energy transition.
In each different session. PEGASUS partnership leveraged their knowledge from experimenting a simulation of functioning of micro-grids in 7 pilot areas: France, Cyprus, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Greece and Gozo, focusing the networking activities also on the modelisation of micro-grid business models: high Renewable Energy Sources (RES) penetration and integration of emerging technologies for a more efficient operation and control of micro-grids.
The event in Cagliari (Sardinia) served as an important stage to promote the experience of San Lawrenz LC as one of the main beneficiaries of the PEGASUS project (Promoting Effective Generation and Sustainable Uses of Electricity) funded under the Interreg MED Programme.
MIEMA said that it actively provides its support to the Gozo region with respect to energy and environment related projects and regularly organises activities to bring together local stakeholders and the general public.
The agency will be hosting the interregional partners’ meeting for PEGASUS project in Gozo in the beginning of July 2019.
