GENERDIS: NEW TECHNOLOGIES RESEARCH IN PHOTOVOLTAIC, STORAGE AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT FOR DISTRIBUTED GENERATION UNDER THE PARADIGM OF ENERGY COMMUNITIES.
New technologies research. Photovoltaic, Storage and Energy Management for Distributed Generation under the paradigm of energy communities.
GENERDIS is an industrial research project that will deal with the technological challenges of future energy communities, the most complex scenario of distributed generation: the distributed nature of the resources that form the energy community makes neccessary an optimal operation, which considers the common good of the community, and flexible to face changing climatic situations or other kind, in order to reduce the risk of technical and economic feasibility and achieve a less dependence on aid or subsidies. Thus, the project is based on three pillars:
Optimized management of decentralized energy resources, both towards the energy community and the electrical system as a whole, through adaptive systems based on Artificial Intelligence.
Research into innovative storage technologies for the energy generated, with less dependence on critical materials, including centralized storage at the energy community level and its digitization.
Research into new materials, methods for maximizing the use of solar resources and their integration into the available surfaces in buildings.
The GENERDIS project is part of “Mission 1. Strengthen technological capacities for safe and sustainable energy autonomy (fusion, hydrogen and renewables)”, in the field of action of renewable energies, to investigate innovative technologies that allow greater integration of renewables, decentralization and less dependence on critical materials.
CEN Solutions’ role:
CEN Solutions’ role is focused on researching emerging flow batteries as an alternative to lithium batteries that currently lead the storage market. In addition to the above, CEN Solutions will develop a demonstrator that will allow the validation of the energy storage system.
Participants: COBRA INSTALACIONES Y SERVICIOS SA (leader); CEN SOLUTIONS; ARIÑO DUGLASS SA; CUERVA ENERGIA SL; ENERGY PANEL SL; ISOTROL SA; NVISION SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGIES SL and SFERAONE SOLUTIONS Y SERVICES SL.
