LocalRES is an EU-funded project that will deploy innovative local energy systems to put renewable energy into the hands of communities and people. The project will boost structural changes in the current energy system at different levels: generation, market, distribution and consumers.


FLASC is developing a Hydro-Pneumatic Energy Storage (HPES) system tailored for offshore applications. The objective is to bridge the gap between intermittent renewable energy production and a fluctuating consumer demand. This allows, for example, large offshore wind farms to improve the quality of the power that they provide to consumer grids, and also to supply reliable power to island grids and remote offshore locations, such as oil & gas infrastructure.

Easy Smart Grid

Easy Smart Grid focusses on the integration of more renewable energy through demand side management, in a more reliable and efficient way. It creates a market platform where energy producers and consumers can exchange energy and flexibility. With our patented technology, electrical equipment (Heating, cooling, pumping, EVs, Household equipment) shift their consumption based on price signals derived from grid information (Frequency, power), the decision is taken locally (Swarm intelligence) and the system can react in real-time.
