Słupsk (Poland)

Słupsk – the Polish Pilot Project

The Polish city of Słupsk in Pomerania has 90,000 inhabitants. The environmental policy of the city is aimed at eliminating energy poverty and becoming one of the cleanest Polish cities according to the air quality standards of the European Union respectively the World Health Organisation. To achieve this, a mixed strategy is pursued. On the one hand, energy efficiency is increased by refurbishing houses and replacing old, coal-burning stoves with renewable heating sources; on the other hand, investments in public transport are made, and photovoltaic (PV) facilities are further developed.

As of today, PV facilities with a capacity of 0.18 MWp are installed on public buildings. Within the three-year runtime of the SCORE project since its launch in July 2018, an additional 0.78 MWp is to be installed with the help of private (co-)investments. This corresponds to an overall capacity increase of 433%. Like this, at least 200 households are expected to be included and turn from mere consumers into prosumers. Considering the annual energy demand of these 200 households and the anticipated energy savings of 368 kWh per household, the expected energy savings resulting from a change of consumption behaviour are expected to amount to 73,600 kWh (368 kWh * 200 households = 73,600 kWh) per year.

The pilot implementation is managed by the municipality of Słupsk and the Institute for Renewable Energy (IEO) with the support of the SCORE consortium partners.
