Greenernet Project is focusing on the distributed storage and renewables integration for residential and communities’ microgrids that represent a large market in Europe.
The specific objective of the overall innovation project is twofold:
- Develop and commercialize a storage system module of 10 kW power, 40 kWh capacity starting from a technology demonstrated in relevant environment battery prototype of 1kW/1kWh. The new battery is based on a breakthrough technology, originally developed by Harvard University that relies on the electrochemistry of naturally abundant, inexpensive, small organic (carbon-based) molecules called quinones, which are similar to molecules that store energy in plants and animals.
- Develop an innovative Microgrid Management Platform for the AQDS flow battery, able to monitor microgrid components (loads, energy sources, storage) and to continuously performing a multi-objective optimisation of the energy flows among them and with the Power Distribution Grid whose requests will be taken into account by dynamically adhering to Demand Response programs.
