Establish a baseline of energy demand and energy production sources in the Šalek Valley.

Regarding energy systems and mobility, the analysis of the current situation shows that there is a need for 177 GWh of electrical energy in the Šaleška Valley, of which only 11.5 % can be met by the renewable energy sources. The power network in the Valley provides good security and quality of service in terms of electricity supply.

•              The estimation of future electricity needs within individual households and public buildings was carried out through simulations. For further reshaping of the energy system and understanding the future mobility use of the Utility Company Velenje vehicle fleet, the use of two digital twins is planned.

•              The results of these efforts will enable the preparation of recommendations for investments in energy infrastructure and technical documentation for feasible solar power plants and electric energy storage systems.
