Flexens, with its first pilot project Smart Energy Åland, is a public – private – people partnership. The company aims to become a world-leading project development company that implements cutting edge sustainable and flexible energy systems. The imminent energy transition requires a suitable place to pilot and demonstrate a fully renewable energy source (RES) system, which is sustainable both technically and economically. Flexens has identified the opportunity to develop and build a full society scale RES system based on Åland – a Nordic island autonomy with ideal wind and solar conditions, an ambitious climate- and energy strategy as well as a population dedicated to sustainability.
The island will act as a world unique testbed and growth engine for companies to test and combine innovative energy solutions, acting as a reference area of RES deployment. In addition, it will provide a unique piloting platform attracting international investments, operators and technology providers. Creating the smart, flexible and renewable energy system of the future is a process of innovating, learning and adapting for all stakeholders. The benefit of demonstrating the system on a full society scale is that the results are directly scalable to other societies.
