Fakulteta za elektrotehniko

We are proud of our colleagues from Fakulteta za elektrotehniko! 👏👏👏

Danes je pravi dan za velike novice!

FEspirator je prototip delujočega medicinskega ventilatorja, ki se ga je ekipa s Fakulteta za elektrotehniko sredi marca lotila v okviru iniciative »Slovenski respirator«, s katero so pozvali ustanove in podjetja z ustreznim znanjem in kompetencami, da v sodelovanju z UKC Ljubljana razvijejo medicinski ventilator.

Vodja strokovne komisije KC Ljubljana doc. dr. Tomislav Mirković, dr. med., je po preizkusu takole ocenil FEspirator:
» Če bi ocenjeval z ocenami od 1 do 10, je to za FEspirator sigurno ocena 11.«

Bravo naši fantje! Ponosni smo!


Today we celebrate🥳 the #EarthDay🙏, which raises the attention to many aspects of our lives. Energy is just one of them.

In Compile we are tackling #energy⚡️ #challenges by working on #decarbonisation♻️ of energy supply, #community👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 building and creating environmental and socioeconomic #benefits✅.

Mr. Aleš Koželjnik from Petrol Slovenija during #energy #conference #EnOdmev:

"In the future, the #active #consumer 👩👦will play a vital role, especially in terms of #flexibility. As part of the #XFLEX project, the consortium of partners including Petrol will, among other things, demonstrate the effects that the active consumer can have. The loads on the #power #system have implications for the security of supply and it is not the largest units that can expect to be most effective in future; it is the #flexible, quick response generation units." ⚡️🔋 💡

Sistemski integrator in energetski analitik sta le dva od poklicev na področju energetike, ki bodo pomembni v prihodnosti, pravi dr. Tomi Medved iz Laboratory of Energy Policy - LEST ljubljanske Fakulteta za elektrotehniko, računalništvo in informatiko. V družbi GEN-I d.o.o. so medtem prepričani, da bodo v prihodnosti v prednosti tisti, ki bodo sposobni zajeti znanja tako s področja humanizma kot tehnologije in družboslovja. Z vprašanji o poklicih prihodnosti v energetiki pa smo se obrnili tudi na družbo ELES, Petrol Slovenija in ABC Accelerator.

Conseed project

📌 #Attention 📌

#Energy #efficiency ✅♻️ can drastically reduce energy #costs 💰📉⚖️💵

Well done prof. Eleanor Denny and whole Conseed project team 👏👏

Make smart decisions! 👍👩‍🏫

The CONSEED project has explored how households and firms make decisions in relation to their energy-consuming investments. In particular we have examined how providing monetary information on energy use, e.g. the likely energy costs over a year in euros, at the point of sale can influence choice.

What did we find out? And how does that relate to you? This film provides an overview of the main policy-relevant findings from the project.

Check for more details.

The CONSEED project includes the following partners:
Trinity College Dublin
CICERO Senter for klimaforskning
BC3 Basque Centre For Climate Change
Laboratory of Energy Policy - LEST/ Univerza v Ljubljani / University of Ljubljana

And is funded by the EU's Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020.

For an #energy #labelling scheme ♻️ to be effective in terms of affecting #consumers’ #choices 💁‍♀️💁‍♂️🏘💰, individuals must be aware of its existence, must understand the #information provided 📚🖋, must trust the label and must find the information useful 📈🆗

🤔Do European consumers pay attention to energy labels when they buy an electric appliance, a car or a house? 🏡🚗

That was the question we set out to answer with input from consumers in 🇮🇪🇬🇷🇸🇮🇪🇸🇳🇴 in the early phase of the CONSEED project.

In general, the results from this initial input gathered through focus groups and in-depth interviews showed that in purchasing decisions price💶 appears to be the most
important attribute across all sectors. The importance of energy efficiency is mixed. In some sectors, it ranks quite
low while in others it is very important. Some of the main reasons driving this low ranking are lack of understanding and distrust.

The collected qualitative data on the purchasing decision making process related to energy efficiency in households, services, agricultural and industrial sectors formed input to the further research in the project.

The work package on focus groups was lead by professor Andrej Gubina, head of Laboratory of Energy Policy - LEST at Univerza v Ljubljani / University of Ljubljana.

#Energy #targets for the transition to a low-carbon future; How can energy companies contribute and what are their needs in this regard - organised by #EnergetikaNET


Stojan Nikolic, Managing Director of Holding Slovenske elektrarne
Our company HSE is the largest CO2 generator but we are also the largest RES producer. We are good / bad at both ends. 2030 is close - even if we start today it is very difficult to build any major energy facility by 2030. Our goals must be towards 2050/2060 when current large power facilities are out of operation.

Mag. Janez Grošelj, director of energy and environment at Petrol
We recognize that cities are big consumers and there are many optimization and savings opportunities with smart management and offering complete energy solutions. We invest approximately 50 million EUR in RES. By 2025, we aim to have 700 GW of RES installed. Targets with smart access can be achieved by 2035.

Danijel Levičar, Business Director of GEN Energija
There are three pillars - security of supply, environmental acceptability and competitiveness - or accessibility - for both households and industry. We are very interested in the electrification of traffic. We firmly believe that by 2050 it is possible to decarbonize energy, but it will take a lot of work and coordination. Slovenia's energy concept and NEPN are key and must answer these questions. If we have a bad government, economy and industry can work with no interruptions, which is unfortunately not the case for the energy sector, because of the great difficulty of placing large power plants in space. The right combination would be RES and the nuclear energy that we have a lot of experience with. Goals need to be adjusted and made realistic, as current are simply impossible to reach.

Marjan Eberlinc, CEO of Plinovodi & President of the Slovenian Energy Chamber
Gas sector - The market will be very difficult to respond to as return on investment is highly variable and difficult to predict. We currently reach 23% of RES share, and the EU targets with the recommendation of 37% RES are a big challenge. Energy sector is a serious activity to deal and plan in a short term. Some numbers from energy sector - 14 billion in revenues, 1.2 billion in returns, € 225 million in profits. It employs 11,500 people and is a serious business - we have created the conditions to be ranked 6th in the energy trilemma ranking and slip 12th in 2018. Encouraging fact is that but we are 9th out of 128 countries in security of energy supply and we should be really proud of that!

Mag. Andrej Ribič, CEO of Elektro Ljubljana
There are two goals in front of us according to NEPN 2020/2030 - one is next year and the next is 11 years from now. The first one will not be achieved (25% of RES since we will be somewhere at 22-23%). We will also find it very difficult to achieve our goals because of bureaucracy! The biggest changes in the coming years will be on distribution - RES, electrification of transport and big needed investments in distribution. We as a distribution company will require additional resources, which are not currently foreseen and guaranteed. Here, all the siting procedures and all related issues are very prominent. All the major car companies are going in the direction of electrification - we'll have to follow that too. The big problem is energy storage - but there is a lot of ongoing activities currently and by 2030 things will be quite different. From today’s point of view, of course, we are skeptical. In order to achieve our goals, it will be necessary to invest more in knowledge - in companies or employees, as well as in institutions. Now, unfortunately, we are lagging behind the European average.
