Today, there are still several R&D barriers, and user-acceptance-related challenges that hinder the smooth integration and proliferation of multiple Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs) in buildings. In response to that, RE-COGNITION proposes a holistic, end-to-end RETs Integration Framework towards energy positive buildings with a focus on small and medium-sized buildings in Europe. Through the envisaged Automated Cognitive Energy Management Engine (ACEME), RE will be utilized more efficiently paired with appropriate storage technologies and innovative energy systems to meet the electricity and heating/cooling demand of the buildings. The framework is designed to enable the integration of multiple, heterogeneous, energy generating systems covering the spectrum of available building-scale RES (solar (PV, thermal/ cooling), wind, bio-energy (renewable biofuel through micro-CHP) and geothermal) and demonstrating future-proof extensibility. To this end, the project entails R&D at the level of single technologies and their interconnection with novel energy systems (like heat-pumps harnessing geothermal energy, absorption chillers) leveraging current IoT and smart-grid standardization outcomes. Along with measurable improvements on each technology’s efficiency, performance, desired characteristics and cost-effectiveness, RE-COGNITION ensures optimal integration of RETs in buildings, as well as (inter)operation and matching between building RE supply and energy demand. Its stakeholder-centred approach aligns both the process and its outcomes with the needs and expectations of (end-)users by providing tools that facilitate large-scale deployment of building-scale RETs. For 36 months 15 partners from 7 EU countries will provide technology know-how, lab facilities & 5 validation sites and will work towards meeting EU’s expectations for reduced dependence on fossil fuels and cost-effectiveness compared to conventional energy generation and management solutions in buildings.

Project Detail

Buildings play a significant role in the global energy balance. Typically, they account for 20-30% of the total primary energy requirement of industrialized countries, 40% in EU. Applying the proposed integrated RES to buildings is an important application for wider integration and deployment of renewable energy and to achieving our binding EU targets of at least a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 2030, compared to 1990 and at least 27% of renewable energy in EU. The IDEAS project will create an innovative building integrated renewable energy system (RES) which will cost effectively exceed current RES efficiencies, generating electricity, heat and cooling and optimised for multifamily, public and commercial buildings in different climatic conditions. The research aim is to create a novel low-cost building integrated RES maximizing the output tuneable for different climatic conditions through novel luminescent and geometric concentrator techniques leading to current solar system efficiencies being exceeded electrically. Thermally enhancement will be achieved using enhanced organic phase change materials (PCM) with a passive biomimetic heat transfer mechanism for heat storage and discharge. An electrically driven multi-source heat pumpHP system will then use the main energy sources at building scale (waste heat from the system, air and ground), to provide the input to an integrated underfloor heating and hot water system, and to manage the thermal energy storage. This building integrated RES will use advanced control techniques to maximize performance and electrical and thermal/cooling self-sufficiency in the building. The technology will be optimized and demonstrated for use in multi-family residential buildings, commercial and public buildings

RES4BUILD will develop renewable-eneRRES4BUILD develops renewable energy-based solutions for decarbonising the energy used in buildings. The approach of the project is flexible, so that the solutions are applicable to a wide variety of buildings, new or renovated, tailored to their size, their type and the climatic zones of their location. In the heart of the solution lies an innovative multi-source heat pump with a cascading configuration, including a magnetocaloric (bottom cycle) and a vapour compression heat pump (top cycle). The heat pump will be combined with other technologies in tailored made solutions that suit the specific needs of each building. These technologies will be selected on a case by case basis from a mix of standard equipment available in the market and from innovative components that will be specifically explored within the project. The innovative technologies include innovative collectors that integrate in one panel photovoltaic cells and solar thermal energy collectors (PV/T) and borehole thermal energy storage (BTES). For all solutions, advanced modelling and control approaches will be developed and will be integrated in a Building Energy Management System, allowing the users to select their objectives and to optimise the use of the system accordingly, allowing the activation of demand response and the exploitation of the full value of smart appliances and smart charging of electric vehicles. The project adopts a co-development methodology, where the end-users and other relevant stakeholders are engaged in an interactive process, where a RES$BUILD system is designed for their buildings with their active participation. In parallel, a full life cycle assessment and life cycle costing analysis will be carried out, showing from an early stage the real impact of each proposed design. The diverse consortium and the dedicated exploitation tasks will connect the project with the market, paving the way for wide application of the developed solutions.

Project Detail

Most renewable energies can only be delivered intermittently. Without massive long-term storage capacities they will never provide 65 % of our energy mix by 2050, as required to limit global warming to 2°. Throughout this period and beyond, energy generation from combustion will remain a key component of this mix. SCIROCCO has two goals: (1) provide effective storage for renewable energies and (2) significantly improve existing combustion systems. Objective (1) is addressed by extending ‘Power to Gas (PtG)’ strategies, where excess electricity from renewable sources is converted into fuel, usually hydrogen (H2), which is easy to store over long periods and burn when power is needed. Objective (2) is addressed by burning the ‘renewable’ H2 in smart combustors with higher efficiencies and reduced emissions. Today, H2 is diluted in methane lines (drop-in strategy) to burn in existing devices. This strategy ignores the exceptional properties of H2, which burns and ignites faster than all other fuels. We will exploit these properties in new chambers that (1) burn H2 within a wide range of fossil fuel mixes and (2) use H2 as a powerful actuator to increase performance. Rather than diluting H2 in other fuels, we will inject H2 into the chamber separately. Research is needed to analyse the structure of these new dual-fuel flames that burn a fossil fuel and H2 simultaneously. This is a challenge for combustion science, requiring a re-think of chamber design and control. These fundamental issues will be addressed for two applications with fundamental societal impact: (1) laminar gas-burning flames (stoves, heaters) and (2) swirled liquid fuel turbulent flames (aerospace and power gas turbines). All cases will be studied experimentally (at IMFT) and numerically (with CERFACS simulation codes). SCIROCCO will develop fundamental knowledge on multi-fuel flames and have a direct societal impact as SCIROCCO burners will pave the way for smart combustors burning renewable H2

Project Detail

HIGHWAVE is an interdisciplinary project at the frontiers of coastal/ocean engineering, earth system science, statistics and fluid mechanics that will explore fundamental open questions in wave breaking. Why do waves break, how do they dissipate energy and why is this important? A central element of the work builds on recent international developments in the field of wave breaking and wave run-up led by the PI that have provided the first universal criterion for predicting the onset of breaking of water waves in uniform water depths from deep to intermediate. This work has also shown that the run-up of nonlinear waves impinging on a vertical wall can exceed up to 12 times the far-field amplitude of the incoming waves. These results have now opened up the possibility for more accurate operational wave models. They have practical and economic benefits in determining structural loads on ships and coastal/offshore infrastructure, evaluating seabed response to extreme waves, and optimizing operational strategies for maritime and marine renewable energy enterprises. This is a tremendous advance comparable to the introduction of wave prediction during World War II, and the PI aims to be at the forefront of this research effort to take research in wave breaking into fundamentally new directions. The objectives of the project are: (i) to develop an innovative approach to include accurate wave breaking physics into coupled sea state and ocean weather forecasting models; (ii) to obtain improved criteria for the design of ships and coastal/offshore infrastructure; (iii) to quantify erosion by powerful breaking waves, and (iv) to develop new concepts in wave measurement with improved characterization of wave breaking using real-time instrumentation. This highly interdisciplinary project will involve an ambitious and unconventional combination of computational simulation/theory, laboratory experiments, and field measurements of sea waves, closely informed by application needs.

Project Detail

FCH have a central role to play in the development of renewable energy sources and, consequently, in the reduction of environmental damage caused by conventional energy sources such coal or oil. A dedicated model of education is needed, especially one directed at the coming generations, in order to make the ecological thinking a fundamental part of our culture and habits, in the context of the industrial priorities in this field. Working out such forms of education is the purpose of FCHgo. Along the project, a wide activity of dissemination of a toolkit for teachers and pupils at the primary and secondary school level will be realized, ensuring technical and pedagogical excellence. Our methodological approach - takes into account the cognitive tools of pupils at various stages of development - uses different forms of expression by employing narrative forms of communication and - includes the presence of stakeholders and industries active in the field, to tell the stories of successful applications and fostering careers in this field. FCHgo will result in a set of tools, namely: an educational toolkit with narrative explanations of the technology, its functioning and applications, translated in 10 European languages; a website as connecting point for all the users and containing a wiki-space; a set of workshops in the classrooms of 6 countries, involving pupils from 8 to 18 to test and improve upon the materials and set the indicators for the activities’ evaluation; the first edition of an annual award to the best idea/solution to employ FCH, including an award ceremony; a final guideline describing an educational program delivery model, linked to priorities defined by industry.

Project Detail

Project Development Objective (PDO) 15. The PDO is to promote the scale-up of distributed renewable energy and GHG emission reduction in China through policy interventions and pilots. 16. The PDO indicators are as follows: • PDO Indicator 1: Incremental installed capacity of DRE enabled by the project. Baseline: Nil. End target: 10 GW.9 • PDO Indicator 2: Incremental avoided GHG emissions enabled by the project. Baseline: Nil. End target: 7 million metric tons carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent. 10 • PDO Indicator 3: New policies for DRE developed with project support. Baseline: Nil. End target: Seven. • PDO Indicator 4: New plans or targets for DRE at provincial or national level developed with project support. Baseline: Nil. End target: Four. • PDO Indicator 5: Innovative, scalable new use-cases 11 for DRE developed and piloted under the project. Baseline: Nil. Target: Six. • PDO Indicator 6: Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of market perceptions toward DRE in sample areas. Baseline: No M&E system in place. Year 1 target: Initial M&E system in place and sample baseline metrics established. Mid-term target: M&E system in place and trial measurement of key indicators in sample areas. End target: M&E system refined with complete measurement of key indicators in sample areas and improved values relative to baseline. 17. The PDO indicators are consistent with GEF guidelines. Target values are informed by national-level modelling by the Government (Energy Research Institute/ERI and China National Renewable Energy Center/CNREC 2018) which specifically measures distributed PV. Equivalent values for other types of distributed energy resources are not available but will be estimated as part of the project’s M&E system. For this project, the DRE excludes hydropower. B. Project Components 18. The project comprises GEF grant funding of US$7,278,600 from 2019 to 2023 for policy support, pilot support, and capacity building and project management. 12 Although it is a stand-alone project, it is jointly designed, and will be implemented in parallel, with the Bank-supported R&B project to support DRE development in China. The project has a dual focus on national and subnational activities. While it will support the NEA on policy and regulations for DRE at the national level, activities in all areas of China will be considered–subject to selection criteria (described in Annex 3) and with particular attention to local government commitment for DRE. Government agencies in several provinces (Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Henan, and Shanxi) have expressed interest and proposed potential activities during preparation. 19. Component 1: Policy Support (GEF US$2.0m, counterpart funding US$2.0m). This component will involve carrying out selected studies to inform and develop policies and regulations at national or provincial level to scaling up DRE. This may include: (a) grid access to allow direct contracting between the DRE generators and end users; (b) pricing schemes to account for the economic value of DRE to different actors at given times and locations; (c) standards and certification schemes such as for safety, security, technical parameters, and building-integrated solar PV; (d) urban planning that incorporates DREs at city and township levels; (e) information and communication mechanisms, including technology platforms, access, privacy, and cybersecurity risk management; (f) battery storage, particularly that used for DRE, related policy, regulation, and standards, especially on safety, environmental management, and reuse and disposal to support and leverage the investments in DRE and battery storage under the R&B project.
