NETfficient

The NETFFICIENT project (http://netfficient-project.eu/) deploys and demonstrates local storage technologies and develop ICT tools to exploit the synergies between storage, the smart grid and citizens.

The demonstration in a real environment such as the German Island of Borkum (off the coast of the North Sea) will be carried out through five use cases that will cover low and medium stress scenarios and a wide range of applications and functional aspects.

For these usage cases, viable business models will be developed, and dissemination and operational activities will ensure that these results foster the adoption of storage technologies on the market. By focusing on renewable energy sources to fuel the island's energy demand, the project helps reduce carbon emissions, as well as fossil fuel dependency, which enables households, districts and citizens to adopt a sustainable and clean energy supply.

The island of Borkum will continue to work towards its goal of achieving energy self-sufficiency.

The expected project results are:

  • An energy management system to be used by energy companies to manage the energy of their associated storage devices;
  • Control systems to integrate management tools and decision support that allow the integration of renewable energy generation, forecasting and storage systems in the smart network;
  • Demonstration of innovative storage solutions such as HESS (Hybrid Energy Storage System), Li-ion batteries, second-life electric vehicle batteries, hybrid domestic technologies (ultra-capacitors + Li-ion batteries) and hydrogen batteries;
  • Business models supported by evaluations related to the Life Cycle Assessment / Life Cycle Cost to allow for an easier deployment of energy storage technologies in the electricity market;
  • Changes proposed to regulators in social and economic areas to reduce barriers to the deployment of distributed storage for the use cases defined in the project.
