Fuel retailer and energy services company Petrol mounted three household batteries in the municipality of Luče. The University of Ljubljana is the coordinator in Compile project, which brought the power storage solutions to the test site.

A community battery is being installed in a village northeast of Ljubljana, close to the border with Austria. Engineers are at the pilot site Luče in the Compile project, funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. At the test site in Slovenia, earlier they connected household power storage units to the grid.

The University of Ljubljana and its Laboratory of Energy Policy, LEST, are coordinating the works, which also include Croatia and Greece.

The scheme is being implemented in Križevci, located just northeast of Zagreb, and Rafina near Athens. The partners there are the Green Energy Cooperative, also known as ZEZ, and the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems, respectively. The latter operates within the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).

The remaining partner countries are Austria, Belgium, Portugal and Spain. Luče will also be part of the XFlex project.

Compile is worth EUR 6.35 million. It is directed at opportunities of energy islands for the decarbonization of energy supply, community building and creating environmental and socioeconomic benefits, according to project documentation.

Fuel retailer and energy services company Petrol is the partner in Slovenia. Household batteries of 10 kW – two designed for 23.2 kWh and one for 11.6 kWh, are already online. The endeavor is aimed at lowering the cost of electricity, tackling outages and establishing the first self-sufficient energy community in the country.
