Research contents:

Presently, the share of renewable energy in the built environment is very modest, and aims at covering only the base load. For the built environment, it is envisaged that the total yearly energy demand could be covered by thermal and electrical energy, produced from renewable sources, generated within the built environment. This work package will focus on the development of an integrated renewable energy system. This work package will also consider the building design, e.g good place (surrounding environment), facade, shading and solar application, natural ventilation, day lighting, management and commissioning, clean energy (gas or PV), energy storage, the guideline of the whole system utilization, evaluation of LCA. Figure shows the visualization of the concept of integrated renewable energy system. This project will create reliable scenarios to implement the concept in different areas in China.

Task:

  • Building integrated renewable energy systems

  • Prototype solutions for products that store and transfer renewable energy and electricity, and treat tap water

  • Develop concepts for kinetic energy storage systems which are able to deliver renewable energy

  • Development of design principles of integrated renewable energy systems

  • Development of Local Energy Planning Tool for district energy system development (based on all work packages of the proposal)

Results:

WP3 will develop a novel integrated renewable energy system suitable for built districts in China. By this system, the energy may be available as locally generated renewable energy, externally imported renewable energy or industrial waste heat.

Deliverables:

D3.1: Report on the concept of integrated renewable energy system (30.9.2011)

D3.2: Report on design principles (1.3.2012)

D3.3: Report on integrated solutions and system performance (31.10.2012)
