Positive Energy District

Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) are areas within a city that are designed to reduce climate impact and promote sustainability by optimizing energy use and maximizing the utilization of renewable energy sources.

In positive energy districts, various technologies and strategies are integrated to reduce dependence on external energy sources. For example, solar panels and solar thermal collectors can be installed on buildings to generate electricity and heat, and the energy can be stored in batteries or used directly to meet the area's energy needs.

Energy consumption in positive energy districts can also be reduced through energy-efficient buildings with good insulation, energy-saving appliances, and lighting, as well as smart energy management and monitoring systems. There may also be charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and other sustainable modes of transportation to promote low carbon emissions within the area.

By creating positive energy districts, communities can reduce their environmental impact, increase energy resilience, and contribute to the transition to a sustainable and carbon-neutral future. Positive energy districts serve as living examples and inspire the adoption of similar sustainability strategies and technologies on a larger scale.

Positive energy districts can be an important part of the future electricity market by promoting sustainability, renewable energy, and local energy supply. By creating synergies between energy production, consumption, and distribution, these areas can help shape a more resilient, efficient, and sustainable energy sector.

These areas can serve as models and testbeds for innovative energy solutions and technologies. By creating sustainable energy systems within these areas, different aspects such as energy production, energy storage, energy consumption, and energy management can be evaluated and optimized. These experiences and knowledge can then be disseminated and applied on a broader scale within the energy sector.

A future electricity market may include the possibility for positive energy districts to produce and sell surplus renewable energy to the public grid. By being net energy suppliers, these districts can help reduce the burden on conventional energy sources and promote a more decentralized and distributed energy supply.

Additionally, positive energy districts can stimulate the growth of green jobs and promote economic sustainability. By creating a local energy infrastructure, there can be opportunities for investment, innovation, and employment in areas such as renewable energy production, energy efficiency, energy storage, and smart energy systems.

RISE has experts in various areas related to positive energy districts, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, smart energy systems, and sustainable urban development. These experts can provide technical advice and support to design and implement energy solutions that fit customers' needs and goals.

By collaborating with RISE, customers can benefit from our expertise and resources to develop and implement sustainable and efficient energy solutions.
