Businesses across Europe are dealing with rising electricity prices. One way out of the crisis may be flexibility aggregation offered by ouzr agency's new client, the Czech Nano Energies, which smartly manages electricity consumption and production, while also helping reduce energy costs by 10-30%. It also strengthens the stability of the energy grid and optimizes the feed-back of renewable energy. The company has 130 highly skilled employees, and Hungary is now the fourth country where it is present.

Energy systems are undergoing significant technological change around the world, but rising prices are also a major challenge for businesses and households alike. This has put the spotlight on what is known as energy flexibility, which means the continuous coordination of consumption and production. As electricity cannot be stored in large quantities and in a cost-effective way, the control of smaller devices is an efficient solution for the stability of energy supply. As an independent flexibility aggregator, Nano Energies combines numerous smaller and larger power generators and consumers into a common smart system, which thus acts as one large "virtual power plant".

Flexibility aggregators are becoming increasingly important as renewable energy production grows. As the renewable generation is not balanced over time, solutions to stabilize the electric grid are much needed.

"Feeding the electricity generated by solar panels to the grid has become a hot topic in Hungary in recent months, which shows how important the balance of the transmission grid is. With its grid balancing services, Nano Energies' technology can offer a solution to this problem," says Tibor Lukács, Head of Nano Energies Hungary, who also points out that in addition to the increased stability, the flexibility aggregator can also optimize costs. With Nano Energies' intelligent solutions, companies - for example biogas stations, cogeneration units, landfill gas power plants just to name a few - can achieve energy cost reductions of 10-30 percent without having to transform its daily operations. For companies that operate 24 hours a day and have variable energy consumption, cost savings can be as high as 60 percent.

"Flexibility aggregators are accelerating the transition to sustainable energy. Nano Energies can harness the potential of electricity that would otherwise remain untapped. We adjust consumption and generation so that customers generate electricity when it is most expensive and consume it when it is cheapest. The customer does not even notice this during operation, because everything is done automatically, and at the same time it contributes to the stabilization of the grid without the need to increase the dependence on the gas power plants," explains Nano Energies CEO Stanislav Chvála.

Nano Energies is currently working together with the national grid operator MAVIR Zrt. to meet all its requirements and to be able to start providing balancing services as of next year. Later on, the company plans to launch a more sophisticated and automated (aFRR) flexibility aggregation service as well to allow customers to get extra revenue.

Nano Energies was founded in 2008 by Czech entrepreneur Petr Rokůsek in the Czech Republic. Last year, the company reported a sales revenue of €116 million and currently employs 130 highly skilled professionals - IT specialists and developers, mathematicians and renewable energy experts.

The international ORLEN Group entered Hungary as a result of the corrective measures associated with the Grupa LOTOS acquisition and under an agreement with the MOL Group regarding the takeover of some of its filling station. The ORLEN Group will take over 143 sites in total. It has already taken over and is starting to rebrand 79 filling stations in Hungary, currently operating under the Lukoil brand.

The sites will be entirely transferred in the white-and-red colours and to the standards of the ORLEN network by the end of March 2023. The remaining 64 outlets in Hungary will be gradually taken over and renamed by mid-2024. The ORLEN Group also takes over 39 MOL stations in Slovakia and will operate 91 stations in total in 2023. Orlen will be among the four largest players in both markets.

The rebranding communication campaign in Hungary is coordinated by FLOW PR

More than 300 entries were received for the recently closed joint photo competition between Theodora Mineral Water and Varázslatos Magyarország, which drew attention to the natural diversity of the Lake Balaton Highlands.

In addition to the three main prizes awarded by the jury, the organisers of the initiative also awarded four special prizes at the competition's award ceremony. The competition was supported by the Balaton-Highlands National Park Directorate, and the photos will be on display at several venues in Balatonfüred this winter.
