The coronavirus still has its effects deep in the marketplace. However, parties in the UK’s renewable energy sector have come together to develop a system that will centralize the region’s renewable energy into a collective grid. Among the parties in question are renewable energy developers Connected Energy. Connected Energy together with a group of other companies generating renewable energy in the region came together to form the SmartHub. Europe’s first jointly integrated energy network.
Regarding this news, Moixa’s GridShare technology will power the much anticipated SmartHubs VPP. Connected Energy expects the grid to offer seamless connectivity as well as operate a wide assortment of hybrid systems. Such systems include sectors like transportation, heating, and electricity, providing the versatility to customers, improving network stability, and creating a better, more efficient yet cleaner grid. In turn, Moixa can supply homes, schools, businesses, and the municipal government of West Sussex up to 350 smart solar panels and battery systems for renewable and low carbon electricity. There will also be up to 250 charging points for electric cars to facilitate the move to eclectic transport alternatives
Using this system, PassivSystems can mount 250 heat pumps for sufficient heat supply, both available on and off the electric grid. To know the thermal capacity for the system requires learning algorithms to develop and evaluate several data points to use inside houses. The system utilizes climatic information and human habits, used to maximize the heating system’s performance. These analytics then provide consumer demand and enable reactions to the demand-side response (DSR) prospects. PassiveSystems is on the move to improve its smart controls systems and infrastructure over the existing SmartHubs platform. Through this venture aims to improve social proprietorship, the company looks forward to providing tenants the necessary interfaces, thereby raising market projections and help VPP performance.
ITM Power aims to explore the feasibility of incorporating hydrogen refueling systems based on electrolyzes. The energy company will then use the systems and integrate them into a decentralized energy grid. The renewable hydrogen systems produce zero fossil fuel emissions while supplying the 2 MW charge worth of power from the infrastructure, which can be disabled or disconnected. The added adaptability when enabled improves the costs of maintenance
Connected Energy plans to supply the region’s anticipated 12 Mw front-of-the-meter renewable power network as well as an additional nine 300 kW of stored energy behind-the-meter structures and up to five EV power hubs for built-in photovoltaic cells and solar power storage. The project is a massive improvement for the environment; however, the SmartHub plan will wait for the coronavirus pandemic to subside to begin
