The Uusiutuva energia pienkohteissa (UEP) project

The aim of the project is to collect data and experiences from the use of renewable forms of energy at small sites. In the project, households are examined as future energy production and consumption units that can meet their own energy needs and act as part of the national electricity use adjustment system by both producing energy and storing it.

The project is a joint undertaking of the Lappeenranta University of Technology (coordinator) and the Savonia University of Applied Sciences.
