The Potenza pilot site is aimed at demonstrating the achievable advantages (primary energy, peak shaving, reduction of energy bills) by the Municipality in two different sites: a swimming pool, where a 165 kW CHP is able to provide about 95 % and 85 % of the required thermal energy and electricity, respectively, and also to feed, through the existing distribution network, about 70 % of the electricity consumed by an electric escalator, having an installed power of 192 kW and being used to transport people from the outskirts to the city centre.

The Municipality of Preko is a small island community situated on Preko Island. In 2015, the municipality adopted Strategies of Sustainable Development where it is stated that one of the goals is long-term energy efficiency and promotion of renewable energy. The Preko pilot consists of microgrid using PV as RES, installed on an olive oil mill building acting as RES (Prosumer) and a „Pučko otvoreno učilište“ building that is acting as Consumer.
The Preko pilot project has 3 major goals:

Just as solar cadastres have become the norm to assess the roof-top PV potential in the last years, assessing the hosting capacity of the low-voltage network for electrical production is on the path to becoming a necessity for an efficient solar production action plan. The model developed here is a hybrid tool composed of a physical model computing results based on a real infrastructure and a statistical model using empirical rules based on frequently encountered cases.

Smart grids are intelligent power grids, encompassing all players of the energy system via a communication network. As power supply systems, they coordinate bidirectional communication between producer, consumer, energy storage and the power grid in real time. In the future, the electricity infrastructure will need intelligent development and an expansion of information and communication techniques. The promotion of renewable energy requires the sharing of more information because electricity is not only generated in high voltages anymore.
