What we do in the project

The Municipality of Jezersko has due to its location in the border region and in basin Kamnik Alps specific physical geographical conditions. Due to the isolation, remoteness from major centers and more frequent extreme weather events, life in this area is different.

Given that the area is remote from major centers and economic development in the past was not strong, the basic electricity infrastructure is obsolete. The major part of the route follows the overgrown and steep slopes, so the line is exposed to adverse weather conditions (wind, snow). Because of that Jezersko is in the reliability and security of electricity supply deteriorating. Due to the above facts often lead to power outages, which are lasting several hours to several days.

The Municipality of Jezersko will carry out pilot activities at the local level, a technical design for an energy storage system will be created and implemented to increase the reliability of power supply. A mountain charging station will also be installed. A simulation for the impact assessment of the warehouse to the local network will be carried out.
