Project: Regional Renewable Energy Cells

Acronym R2EC (Reference Number: 91425)
Duration 02/09/2019 - 31/08/2022
Project Topic The project R2EC aims at developing a scalable system for decentralized, interacting energy cells with a high concentration of local renewable energy generation such as from photovoltaic (PV) systems, storage element as well as high electric use like e-heating and e-vehicles. This system aims at maximizing the use of renewable generated energy at the local and regional level through intelligent interaction of generation, storage and consumption. Also, the system will optimize the interaction on the local level with other energy cells, and thus improve the local energy use. Investigations are also to be made concerning the overall system optimization and resilience, as well as the market participation through aggregation and blockchain use. The main objectives of R2EC are (1) creation of a simulation model / implementation concept, (2) further development of hardware and software needed for the system and the (3) prototypical application of system components in the energy cells.
