Neighbourhood energy management system

Neighbourhood energy management systems aim to integrate the different consumers and producers with the main electrical and heating grids at district level. These systems are essential to approach ultralow or net zero energy districts, controlling the energy consumption either by reducing it either shifting during the day to flat the demand shape.

In order to properly shift the demand among consumers at different times and optimize the energy trading between consumers, storage systems and both the thermal and electrical grid, the Neighbourhood energy management system predicts and monitosr both the energy generation from the neighbourhood integrated systems and user consumption, providing information to the end-user and allowing him to take part in the management of their energy demand.

List of projects where this technology is being implemented.

STORM

The STORM project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. It aims to demonstrate that thanks to a smart DHC network controller energy savings can reach up to 30%. In that perspective, the project partners will...

SMARTER TOGETHER

The European lighthouse cities Vienna (Austria), Munich (Germany) and Lyon (France), the follower cities Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Sofia (Bulgaria) and Venice (Italy), the observer cities Kiev (Ukraine) and Yokohama (Japan) come together to improve citizens’ quality of life. SMARTER TOGETHER...
List of demo sites where this technology is being implemented.

Smarter Together Site Munich

The Munich lighthouse demonstration area is located at the Western edge of the city and includes both the large urban redevelopment area Neuaubing-Westkreuz (350 ha / 30,000 residents) and the flagship new development area Freiham, set to become a model of low carbon development for up to 20,000...

STORM Site Heerlen

In Heerlen (the Netherlands), flooded mine galleries act as a renewable heat source and provide a total of 500,000 m² floor area connected to a low temperature district heating and cooling network. This system consists of two hot wells in the northern part (water with approx. 28°C) and two cold...
