Smart Energy

  • On-site visits to Fortum Cooling & Boiler Houses – The installed heat capacity reaches about 453 MW, which exceeds the requirements of the region for the heat energy by about three times. Of great importance are the boilers at Luunja and Ropka boiler houses that operate on local fuels (saw dust, wood chips, peat), the total capacity being 55 MW. These boiler houses guarantee an essentially lower selling price of heat energy than do the boiler houses operating on natural gas and they are considerable competitors to the container boiler houses operating on gas. With the aim to achieve the economic goals of the company and proceeding from the environmental as well as the macroeconomic requirements, a new combined heat and power production plant (CHP), operating on local fuels, has been built and commissioned.
  • From Hrustsovka to Smartovka – overview of SmartEnCity project Tartu pilot area – Three European cities (Vitoria, Tartu and Sonerborg) have joined the Horizon 2020 SmartEnCity Project to develop smart solutions on Mobility, Energy saving and ICTs for the improvement of citizens’ quality of life.
