Energy system integration

Integration of renewable generation represents a key pillar of the Commission's broader energy and climate objectives in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving the security of energy supply, diversifying energy supplies and improving Europe's industrial competitiveness. 

List of projects where this technology is being implemented.

OPTi

The OPTi project aspires to create a long-lasting impact by rethinking the way district heating and cooling (DHC) systems are architected and controlled. The overarching goal is to create business benefit for the industry as well as to ensure optimal end-consumer satisfaction. OPTi will deliver...

FLEXYNETS

FLEXYNETS will develop, demonstrate and deploy a new generation of intelligent district heating and cooling (DHC) networks that reduce energy transportation losses by working at “neutral” (15-20°C) temperature levels. Reversible heat pumps will be used to exchange heat with the DHC network on the...

Triangulum

The Triangulum project will demonstrate how a systems innovation approach based around the European Commission’s Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) can drive dynamic smart city development. It will test the SIP across three lighthouse cities: Manchester (United...

PITAGORAS

The PITAGORAS project focuses on the efficient integration of city districts with industrial parks through smart thermal grids. Technologies and concepts for low and medium temperature waste heat recovery, considering as well integration with renewable energy sources (RES), and heat (and power)...

SINFONIA

The SINFONIA project is a five-year initiative to deploy large-scale, integrated and scalable energy solutions in mid-sized European cities. At the heart of the initiative is a unique cooperation between the cities of Bolzano (Italy) and Innsbruck (Austria), working hand in hand to achieve 40% to...
List of demo sites where this technology is being implemented.

Shar-LLM Site Milan

The Porta Romana/Vettabbia demonstrator area is under complete re-development. Its renewal will connect the historic centre of the city to its agricultural belt by “stitching together” two geographically, economically and socially separated areas. 21.000 m2 private buildings retrofit 4.000 m2 ...

Shar-LLM Site Lisbon

Lisbon´s ten square kilometre demonstrator area has 100,000 inhabitants. This strategic location stretches from the riverfront to the centre of the city, and includes the main historic and tourist districts. The area poses several challenges, ranging from its particular orography to the historic...

Shar-LLM Site London

The Greenwich demonstrator area is one of the most strategic locations in London. It stretches along the riverfront – from the UNESCO World Heritage Site to Greenwich Peninsula – and occupies 516 Ha. The site includes visitor attractions (e.g. the O2 Arena), a new business startup district, ...

REPLICATE Site San Sebastian

The energy efficiency actions that will be implemented in San Sebastian with REPLICATE include:  Retrofitting 156 dwellings + 34 commercial premises distributed along 10 doorways, totalizing 18.350m2 Saving: 56% District heating: cogeneration plant with a gas boller (2600kW) and a blomass boller (...

REPLICATE Site Florence

As part of the REPLICATE project, measures for sustainable mobility in Florence include:  100 Fully Electrical Vehicles (FEV) 10 EV’s for taxi fleet 151 Charging Points 147 recharging stations (40 in the district). 4 innovative fast recharge stations. Interopertional payment system Control system...
