The first of three stages has been completed in the Nordic Energy Challenge 2022. No less than seven candidates succeeded to the second phase. The next step for these promising participants is to submit their final proposals by August 11th.

Get to know this year’s challengers, one by one, and their ideas in support of the green transition. One of the applicants is Subham Sahoo.

  • Name: Subham Sahoo
  • Position: Assistant Professor
  • Institution: Aalborg University, Department of Energy, in Denmark
  • Name of idea: Reconfigurable Community Storage for Arctic Energy Islands
  • Summary of idea: In Arctic islands, the global problem of energy security cannot be solved by local investments of ESSs in several buildings. This is where I propose to explore the energy security problem globally as a community storage system instead of local exploration of this problem. The idea relies on modifying the existing energy infrastructure of local ESSs into a community-based storage system (CSS) only using a “store-and-forward” concept of energy buffering via novel re-configurable switches (RSs). This will not only save any additional investment of installing more CSSs for system operators but will also attract businesses for community storage from a value chain perspective, representing a cooperative realm and contributing to Nordic values.

One of the challengers will be selected winner and receive their award at the conference The Future of Maritime Fuels on October 5–6th in Nuuk, Greenland.
