The main goal of the cluster is close cooperation of its members in the area of renewable energy development that will lead to the increased use of renewable energy sources, such as geothermal springs, photovoltaics, and co-generation, and effective distribution of generated power through existing systems. Cooperation between scientific and research and development institutions will help stimulate innovation in the field of power generation, distribution, balancing, storage, and management of demand for electric power, heating and cooling. It is also supposed to lead to effective commercialization of research and scientific projects with market potential, their incubation, and matching them with potential investors or buyers. The activities of the Cluster are to support a green, low-carbon economy.
Furthermore, the members of the cluster set themselves the goal of building public awareness concerning effective generation and consumption of power and heat.
The Łódzki Klaster Fala Energii is open to new partners, which may be legal entities, including scientific institutions, research institutes, and organizations without the status of a legal person, which would like to cooperate with the members of the cluster in the pursuit of its goals.
