On 9th March 2020 Eurac research is hosting a workshop at NOI Techpark (Bolzano) within the FESR project INTEGRIDS funded by ERDF/ EFRE/ FESR EU Program of Autonomous Province of Bolzano/Bozen, under the grant n. FESR1042. The main objective of the project is the definition and analysis of energy grids, which must be considered as synergies between thermal and electric grids and as means to allow a broad implementation of renewable energy inside buildings and efficient energy grids.

The SCORES concept (Figure below) is based on a hybrid system combining effectively and efficiently solutions that harvest electricity and heat from the sun, store electricity, convert electricity into heat, store heat, and manage the energy flows in the building. The following ideas and assumptions are the starting point for the development of this highly inter-disciplinary overall concept:

The EU Clean Energy package has for the first time in history integrated “energy communities” in European Legislation. This decisive step recognises energy communities as an emerging market actor, encourages the utilization of local renewable energy sources (RES) and calls for Members States to design enabling frameworks supporting their development.

BASE was founded in 2001 as the Basel Agency for Sustainable Energy. Since our beginning, we have worked on projects to improve the flow of investment towards sustainable energy and meet the challenge of climate change.
BASE has been an initiator of sustainability and investment organisations including The Gold Standard, Global Infrastructure Basel, greenTEK ventures, SEFI and the SEF Alliance.

The consumer’s behaviour regarding their own energy needs will change in the future. Energy users won’t just be simple electricity, gas or heat consumers anymore but prosumers who produce energy through, for example, photovoltaic panels (a.k.a: solar panels) installed on or around their houses and using innovative equipment such as heat pumps, energy storage devices (i.e: batteries) and electric vehicles that will interact with the energy market through different pricing mechanisms such as time variable tariffs.

Smarter grids are enabling electricity producers and consumers to effectively change their electricity generation and usage in ways that can contribute to the system optimisation while also benefiting themselves and helping to reduce carbon emissions.

The Potenza pilot site is aimed at demonstrating the achievable advantages (primary energy, peak shaving, reduction of energy bills) by the Municipality in two different sites: a swimming pool, where a 165 kW CHP is able to provide about 95 % and 85 % of the required thermal energy and electricity, respectively, and also to feed, through the existing distribution network, about 70 % of the electricity consumed by an electric escalator, having an installed power of 192 kW and being used to transport people from the outskirts to the city centre.
