Relevant network and experience in National and European projects
Demonstration of grid-connected electricity storage. GROW-DERS, EU
GROW-DERS offered a solution involving transportable and flexible storage based on newly developed power electronics. This demonstrated the technical feasibility and economic viability of storage systems. At four sites, three different storage systems and a combination set-up have been demonstrated.
Sustainable off-grid powerstation for rural applications. SOPRA, NL
To develop a modular platform for rural power supply. This platform is based on the Multi-source Hybrid Inverter (MHI) that has been developed in The Netherlands, combined with an electricity storage system.
Electric vehicles and demand-side management. ITM, NL
Within this project concepts for network management will be developed for the network operators and specifications will be written for the supporting IT. Also, technical feasibility and social acceptance are taken into account of influencing the demand side by batteries of electric cars and electric heat pumps in energy storage systems.
Save and standardized concept of EV battery switch technology. EasyBAT, EU FP7
EasyBAT will develop (i) generic interfaces to improve interoperability between the battery system modules and the vehicle on board-systems and (ii) new components for an easy & safe location and quick integration of the battery in the vehicle. (iii) At each stage of the project, the EasyBAT partners will assess the feasibility of the overall battery swapping concept considering costs, logistics, and environmental aspects.
