Gotland is the Energy Pilot of Sweden. As such we have the task of accelerating the transition into a renewable energy system on the island, faster than the national climate goals of Sweden. Thereby the entire island today is a testbed. One example of this is the project Smartroad Gotland, implementing/testing a unique solution for seamless charging of vehicles while travelling on the road. Another is the establishment of Gotland Industrial Symbiosis Park, being a circular economy-based hub where companies will interact both technically and socially in a circular fashion. The entire area around the Park, including airport, resort and residential area, will also be connected by hydrogen storage solutions, common water facilities and waste solutions.
Energicentrum Gotland is in the center of the work on the island with the task of coordinating, enabling, driving and communicating the energy transition on Gotland.
Community energy, hydrogen solutions solar- and wind power are established fields.
Smart Grid Gotland has been performed.
Coordinet is ongoing (https://coordinet-project.eu/projects/project).
CemZero - electrifying concrete production.
Testing of integration of renewable energy production and energy storage to the system. Testing of the results of energy communities, both in relation to the overriding net and to the prosumers involved. Studies (interviews, questionnaires, etc.) on customer acceptance/perception of a service innovation.
At the mentioned location, the testbed consists of the main electricity transmission and distribution networks, several district heating networks, energy communities (prosumers) and independent heat consumers.

Pricing is dynamic and will reflect time invested but just as much the benefits gained to Gotland/Sweden through the initiative in question.
