Neighbourhood energy management system




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. Based on self-learning algorithms, the developed controller will enable to maximize the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks....

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.

Tartu Virtual Baltic Smart City Dialogue

In the EU, municipalities are increasingly developing “smart” solutions for urban infrastructures and their integration. Frequently, the vision of a “smart city” is portrayed as key for sustainable, climate friendly municipalities. Building on a German smart city stakeholder dialogue, the project intends to foster European dialogue and learning on smart cities for climate mitigation. The focus will be on the infrastructure sectors mobility, energy and waste management and water and their integration.

Smarter Together Site Munich

The Munich lighthouse demonstration area within the SMARTER TOGETHER project is located at the western edge of the city, and includes both the large urban redevelopment area Neuaubing-Westkreuz and the flagship new development area Freiham, set to become a model of low-carbon development for up to 20 000 new residents and 7 500 new jobs. With the aid of cutting-edge technology and the intelligent use of data, Munich’s objectives are to cut CO2 emissions by more than 20 %, raise the use of renewable energy to above 20 % and increase energy efficiency by more than 20 %.

Project Details

Budget Information

The STORM project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. Based on self-learning algorithms, the developed controller will enable to maximize the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks.

The controller has been implemented in two demo sites, Mijnwater BV in Heerlen (the Netherlands) and Växjö Energi in Rottne (Sweden), where the resulting energetic, economic and environmental gains are assessed.
