omega The mission of Omega Innovations is to provide customers with the most modern, innovative and highly cost-effective thermal energy storage by building aa smart and secure distributed energy infrastructure. Through the use of ICE-ON ™, as shown by the studies carried out, the costs of cooling and greenhouse gas emissions to the environment are reduced, while offering comfort to the user.

ICE-ON ™ manages demand and supply of energy, by moving energy use from rush hour to off-peak hours to manage air conditioning and cooling loads, and integrating renewable energy sources into the network. The solution increases the resilience and stability of power grids, eliminates or delays costly upgrades of electricity transmission networks and flattens the peak of electricity consumption during the day. The developed ICE-ON ™ multiple management systems as ICE-ON-NET ™ enable the Virtual Power Plant (VPP), which remotely controls devices connected in the network, which act as a buffer in power networks. Installing ICE-ON ™ is a cost-effective, clean environmentally-friendly and intelligent solution that ensures maximum efficiency and increases the reliability of electricity supply to customers.
The advantages of ICE-ON ™ ESS, compared to, for example, chemical batteries, are lower price and operating costs, ecological performance and constant power over the entire service life (planned for 25 years).


ncbr eng The National Centre for Research and Development is the implementing agency of the Minister of Science and Higher Education. It was appointed in the summer 2007 as an entity in charge of the performance of the tasks within the area of national science, science and technology and innovation policies. When if was founded, it was the first entity of this type, created as the platform of an effective dialogue between the scientific and business communities.
Currently, it operates under the Act on National Centre for Research and Development dated 30 April 2010 (Journal of Laws from 2010, No. 96 item 616). The science reform adopted in the autumn 2010 gave the Centre more freedom to manage its financial assets, within the scope of a strategic research programme.
In addition, the National Centre for Research and Development extended its activity with new initiatives and possibilities on 1 September 2011. Assigned by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education the function of the Mediation Institution in three operational programmes: Human Capital, Innovative Economy and Infrastructure and Environment, the Centre became one of the greatest innovation centres in Poland.
The activity of the Centre is funded by the national treasury and the European Union.

kke Karkonoski Energy Cluster was founded on April 4, 2017. The members of the energy cluster are among others: Association of Karkonoskie Communes - represents the interests of 7 communes located in the Jelenia Góra poviat (Commune: Karpacz, Kowary, Mysłakowice, Podgórzyn, Szklarska Poręba, Piechowice, Jeżów Sudecki) , TAURON Ekoenergia sp. Z o. O - Coordinator of the cluster, or Karkonoskie Centrum Gospodarki Odpadami sp. O.o. The cluster's mission is to improve the natural environment, reduce low emissions, ensure access to alternative energy sources, and strengthen the local economy based on natural environmental values. The cluster allows, among other things, the rental of electric cars for tourists.
Ostrowski Klaster Energii
Ostrów Wielkopolski has created an energy cluster that will ultimately be based on prosuments, manufacturers - entrepreneurs, residents, municipal companies with an intelligent energy management system and with the use and development of the local electricity and heat distribution system. The energy self-sufficiency of the city focuses today on strategic facilities: water and sewage, heat, health care including hospitals, schools and kindergartens, offices, territorial defense forces and shelters as well as key factories. Based on the previous projects, Ostrów Wielkopolski has a development plan based on Residents, Entrepreneurs and the municipal capital group CRK. To this end, a decision was made to establish CRK Energia. Its main goal is the self-sufficiency of the City, and maybe also the Municipalities of the District - in Odolanów, a power hub for domestic transport is being developed - the transmission and production of domestic gas. The city has a fleet of 5 electric buses (operational from January 2018), which ultimately may become part of the system, which also have energy stores.
innovation AG Innovation AG - active member of Zgorzelec Energy Cluster. Innovation AG is a company operating in the innovative industry. It cooperates with scientists, engineers and young talents from universities and scientific institutions from across Poland. It supports and develops projects of talented inventors. Implemented projects: SOKÓŁ - a universal electric field platform; MOTION CAPTURE HD - a system for capturing and tracking moving or stationary objects; R3D - the only device in the world that allows you to get a full 3D image, while eliminating the need to use any glasses.
Zgorzelecki Klaster Zgorzelec Energy Cluster operates a fleet of 5 electric cars, and conducts R & D activities to further develop e-mobility and energy storage. The main goals of the cluster are:
  • Solid and sustainable development of the renewable energy sector
  • Improving the energy security of the region
  • Easy power regulation in the network - balancing demand and supply
  • Effective system for generation, distribution and consumption of energy
  • Partial securing of energy needs of the poviat / cluster members with the use of RES functioning in the poviat
  • Consumption of 100% of the energy generated within the Cluster for the own needs of the poviat / cluster members
  • Increasing awareness and development of prosumer energy industry among the inhabitants of the Zgorzelec poviat
brenergia Energy Cluster Brenergia was founded in the Brenna community. Currently, the demand for energy in this commune is almost entirely covered by conventional energy sources. Because of the tourist character of the community, the cluster's partners plan to invest in renewable energy sources in order to cover the forecasted increase in energy demand. Cluster participants will invest in research and development of the latest renewable energy techniques, as well as energy storage infrastructure, including pumped storage power plant. In the near future, a network of electric cars for rental is planned for tourists, as well as other e-mobility solutions.
Stedin i ElaadNL - energy storage and e-mobility

One of the projects that Stedin and ElaadNL have partner to commission together an e-mobility and energy storage peoject is the Cars Jeans Stadion in The Hague, Netherlands. They build there a vast battery plant tied to electric vehicle charging stations, showcasing the versatile business opportunities that battery storage offers whilst facilitating the energy transition.
The batteries will store electricity produced by the stadium’s solar panels, to be used during night time. This means that the stadium will be 100 percent energy self-sufficient.
In addition, the stored energy will be used to charge electric vehicles through the installation of a charging hub comprised of 20 charge points fostering the deployment of emission-free vehicles across the city.
Sander Drissen from one of the firms working on the project explained how the it will work: “This project is truly unique in the combination of use cases. We will use the battery to store the oversupply of renewable energy generated during the day”. “This energy can then be used in the evenings when it is most needed. In this way, we make optimal use of the generated renewable energy”. “We will also smooth out the grid impact of a large number of electric vehicles that plug-in at the same location at the same time. And finally, when the stadium is not being used, we can use the storage system for energy trading to further improve our business case”, he added. In a nutshell, the energy project represents a micrography of the smart energy grids of the future.
