The European Union is undertaking consistent action to enforce and promote energy efficiency in building sector. The new energy efficient constructions, expression of the European efforts to decrease CO2 emissions, represent a growing share of the building stock. Now there is an unavoidable need to learn from what we are doing, or have recently done, to improve the quality and the performances of ...

Europe´s electricity sector is in the midst of major transformation moving from public monopolies to competitive private companies in liberalized markets. The liberalization is expected to increase competition and thus increase cost-efficiency in energy production, transmission and distribution with the result of decreasing electricity prices. The efforts of Member State governments to create a mo ...

Arrowhead (ARROWHEAD)

Start date: 01 Mar 2013, End date: 28 Feb 2017,

"Our society is facing both energy and competitiveness challenges. These challenges are tightly linked and require new dynamic interactions between energy producers and energy consumers, between machines, between systems, between people and systems, etc. Cooperative automation is the key for these dynamic interactions and is enabled by the technology developed around the Internet of Things and Ser ...

A Toolbox for Offshore Wind Farm Cluster Design (CLUSTERDESIGN)

Start date: 01 Dec 2011, End date: 31 May 2016,

Today, an offshore wind farm is merely a collection of wind turbines where the components of an offshore wind farm cluster are optimized but not the overall cluster. In the future, the best-performing wind farms will be designed with an integrated approach. For this purpose, design tools for offshore wind farm clusters must then yield for the overall optimum. This means they must integrate the clu ...

Environmental policies focus on protecting habitats valuable for their biodiversity, as well as producing energy in cleaner ways. The establishment of Marine Protected Area (MPA) networks and installing Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) are important ways to achieve these goals. The protection and management of marine biodiversity has focused on placing MPAs in areas important for biodiversity. This has p ...

Tools for Enhanced Photovoltaic System Performance (PERFORMANCE PLUS)

Start date: 01 Nov 2012, End date: 31 Oct 2015,

For a continued decrease of levelised costs of energy from photovoltaics (PV), the prices of PV system components have to be further decreased while performance, functionality, reliability and lifetime on the component and system level need to be increased. In an integrated view, PV system performance emerges from, but is not limited to the performance of the components. The Performance Plus proje ...

MetaPV is the first project world-wide that will demonstrate the provision of electrical benefits from photovoltaics (PV) on a large scale. Additional benefits for active grid support from PV will be demonstrated at two sites: a residential/urban area of 128 households with 4 kWp each, and an industrial zone of 31 PV systems with 200 kWp each. The enhanced control capacities to be implemented into ...

Wind turbines have grown in size throughout the last decade from several hundreds of kW to several MW’s, the large majority being of the classic three-bladed upwind configuration. However for off-shore installations and off-grid systems reliability, robustness and ease of installation are important design drivers that lead to different technological concepts. Under these circumstances a lightweig ...

Northern Seas Wind Index Database (NORSEWIND)

Start date: 01 Aug 2008, End date: 31 Jul 2012,

NORSEWInD is a programme designed to provide a wind resource map covering the Baltic, Irish and North Sea areas. The project will acquire highly accurate, cost effective, physical data using a combination of traditional Meteorological masts, ground based remote sensing instruments (LiDAR & SoDAR) and Satellite acquired SAR winds.The vertical resolution of the ground based instruments will be used ...
