Challenge

As the building sector accounts for 40% of the total European energy consumption and intends to be “near zero energy” in 2050, the share of renewable energy locally generated and self-consumed in the building must be increased. Hybrid storage (i.e. storage of electricity and heat) is indispensable for creating flexibility, allowing to optimize the balance between the supply and consumption profiles of both electricity and heat for the lowest cost.

The main goal of SCORES is to demonstrate in the field the integration, optimization and operation of a building energy system including new compact hybrid storage technologies, that optimizes supply, storage and demand of electricity and heat in residential buildings and that increases self-consumption of local renewable energy in residential buildings at the lowest cost. Demonstration of the integrated hybrid energy system will take place in two real buildings representative of different climate and energy system configurations for 3 cases, in Northern Europe (Austria) with and without a heat grid, and in Middle/Southern Europe (France) without a heat grid.

SCORES has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 766464.

Approach

In the framework of this project, RINA is in charge of the modelling and evaluation of the system added value and business opportunities, which means:

  • preparation of business models;
  • technology roadmap for the future up-scale of the system definition;

Moreover, RINA will analyze and assess the current legislative framework of reference for the proposed hybrid energy system, with the aim of identifying eventual gaps in legislation, therefore addressing policy aspect by developing policy recommendations aimed at stimulating take up of hybrid system solutions by the market.

Conclusion

In conclusion, SCORES will:

  • demonstrate the economic viability of the overall storage systems with return of investment of less than 20 years and proof of the potential for market penetration
  • deploy technologies which are reliable and operating for a minimum of 30 years
  • provide solutions compatible with existing building configurations
