Low Carbon Off-grid Communities (LOGiC) is a joint North-West European collaboration project aimed at piloting North-West Europe towards a low-carbon energy future. Nine project partners have teamed up to develop a standardised model for renewables-based decentral hybrid energy systems (DHES).
LOGiC focuses on ‘energy remoteness’. An area is considered ‘energy remote’ if it is not connected to the main energy infrastructure. LOGiC addresses this problem with decentral hybrid energy systems combining different types of renewables, such as tidal, wind and solar PV with each other as well as with battery storage. As wind, solar, tidal are intermittent by nature and cannot guarantee security of supply in a single source approach, a hybrid model is used.
The pilot on Texel is one of the three pilots of the project, funded 60 % by Interreg North-West Europe.
