Planning Tool


The Open Energy Site ae5 planning tool is meant for the open innovation of service providers and the entire community, using open energy information and in order to develop new services and solutions.

Using the Open Energy Site ae5 planning tool, guidelines will be created for building a comprehensive regional energy system in the Otaniemi campus area. In the comprehensive system, energy production, transfer, distribution, storage and consumption support each other in an intelligent way. With the help of the tool, we can evaluate alternative local energy solutions based on both financial and operational requirements. As the final result, Aalto CRE is aiming for a solution that contains the most efficient technology combination from energy sources and energy production to transfer, distribution and utilisation and storage of the possible “waste energy”.

The tool is developed in phases as a part of the Energy Self-sufficient Otaniemi 2030 project.
