Small energy storage




List of projects where this technology is being implemented.

READY

The READY project aims to demonstrate how the demand of energy and particularly the needs for fossil fuels and release of CO2 can be considerably reduced to nearly zero, and show a sustainable way to go for other European cities. Demonstration is taking place in two cities: Aarhus (Denmark), which... Continue reading
Funding programme: FP7, 4- Demonstration of optimised energy systems for high performance-energy districts.

NEXT-BUILDINGS

The NEXT-Buildings project focuses on low energy buildings also called active houses, which are not only buildings, but active components in the overall integrated energy systems. The target is to demonstrate affordable solutions for social housing and revitalisation of town areas. The solutions... Continue reading

Storage systems collect and release energy at different times aiming at reducing energy use and supporting renewable energy systems. The integration of such systems at building level has to rely on small scale storage systems to better adapt to the building demand.

Small scale storage captures energy when the conditions are more appropriated due to optimal weather conditions such as high solar radiation or wind, low cost of energy or similar conditions. The energy storage will be released when demand is high and/or the release of the storage energy is more convenient than covering the demand with the existing generation technologies.

Energy storage involves the conversion of the produced energy form into a more conveniently or economically storable forms. The most used forms of storage are electrical and thermal storage.

E2REBUILD Site Roosendaal

The E2REBUILD demonstration in Roosendaal, the Netherlands, consists of 112 identical, single family terrace houses built in 1960 in the area of Kroeven. The whole area underwent a transformation, which included renovation of existing houses and new construction. The retrofit of 50 of the houses was part of the E2REBUILD project and was completed at the beginning of 2011.

The renovation in the Roosendaal pilot buildings took place with the tenants remaining in their homes throughout the entire renovation work, which required consideration from both sides and continuous dialogue.

NEXT-BUILDINGS Site Lyon

The goal of the demonstration project was to build a 12 300 m2 zero-energy building in the Lyon-Confluence area in Lyon, France. The public company in charge of the urban project had had previous experience with its involvement in a demonstration project for the construction of the first buildings of this major urban regeneration project (CONCERTO Renaissance project).

EE-HIGHRISE Site Ljubljana

The objective of the EE-HIGHRISE project was to demonstrate and validate new technologies, concepts, and systems in order to test and assess the technological and economic feasibility of innovative energy solutions for high-rise buildings. The project used the Eco Silver House in Ljubljana (Slovenia) as a demonstration site.

NEXT-BUILDINGS

Project Details

Budget Information

The NEXT-Buildings project focuses on low energy buildings also called active houses, which are not only buildings, but active components in the overall integrated energy systems. The target is to demonstrate affordable solutions for social housing and revitalisation of town areas. The solutions will reduce CO2 at no or negative cost seen in a total perspective. Targeted CO2 reduction cost can be minus € 80/tonne taking the benefits of lower energy bills into account, to even better figures when national grants are included.

E2REBUILD

Project Details

Budget Information

E2ReBuild project investigated, promoted, and demonstrated cost-effective and advanced energy-efficient retrofit strategies that create added value for existing residential buildings and endorse end-users to stay and build a dynamic society. The vision of E2ReBuild was to transform the retrofitting construction sector into an innovative, high-tech, energy efficient industrialized sector.
