Second Local Support Group in Hungary

The second Local Support Group was held on 22nd of February 2018 in Nagykanizsa. 


At the beginning of the meeting Tibor Polgár as the strategic director of West Pannon Nonprofit Ltd. presented the activities of the project and the current state of the project to the new members. He said what tasks are expected in this period and we await the help of members in carrying out the activities. Then the members told what they do. The main goal of the newly established LSG will be implementation of Energy Efficiency Plan and bringing in their specific knowledge from different points of view.

The first professional instructor Bálint Olaszi Founder developer of EWISER Forecast Ltd. presented the calculator that their company produced after the short introduction. The presentation of the calculator was important because there will be a similar online calculator in RURES project (Activity A.T3.3). We discussed with the members of Local Support groups the needs how the calculator should be used. The members of Local Support groups shared their experience and Bálint Olaszi showed how to use their calculator. This calculator is a more technical nature, but the partnership has recognised an already completed calculator that anyone can freely use. We have acquired a good experience by knowing of the calculator what we can use the preparation of project tool in the RURES.

Following the presentation, the participants had a discussion on the other calculator in this topic and they recommended also some examples in Hungary.


Péter Pusztai co-founder of the Solar-Markt Ltd. and executive director of the BNREG Ltd spoke about solar power plant.  His company has produced two solar power plants in the region over the past period which was a great investment in region. One of the two investments is a 3,8 MWp surge capacity and the other project is 5,5 MWp surge capacity.  The projected lifetime of investments is at least 25 years. The generated electricity is sold through the mandatory delivery system. He has presented solar projects feasibility in Hungary.
