The largest of them are ABB and Wärtsilä. Solar energy is also an important part of the project Sundom Smart Grid, which focuses on smart grids. One of the goals of the project is to facilitate the connection of solar panels to the grid.
VTT and German company ZAE Bayern have developed a solar-powered 10 kW chiller. This absorption chiller works in the same way as the gas refrigerators used in Finnish holiday cabins, for example. But in this case, a solar thermal collector is used instead of gas. The method requires electricity for the flow pumps only. If […]
The goal of the globally unique Sundom Smart Grid pilot Project was to make electricity delivery more reliable and to establish the preconditions for solar and wind power use in the region’s households. ABB has tested the Sundom automated fault management technology with four intelligent substations, which report directly the network fault situations to Vaasan Sähköverkko`s […]
