On-site renewable energy sources

Renewable Energy forms one of the pillars for delivering global sustainable environment and the commitment to climate change targets. The renewable energy industry has matured, with huge investments being ploughed into it globally. Global new investment in renewable energy (excluding large hydro-electric projects) was around US$241.6 billion in 2016, with over 138.5GW of added renewable power capacity worldwide. This capacity is equivalent to 55% of all the generating capacity and was approximately double that in fossil fuel generation in 2016.

The workshops aimed to explore the role of the Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) in meeting local or regional energy challenges: how do those working in energy at the local level feel SSH understandings could help them in their work? Workshop organisers were trained beforehand in participatory ‘storytelling’ methods, which were designed into the workshops in order to enable rich and diverse contributions from participants to help understand these challenges and draw out SSH-relevant themes.

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.

Long-term building renovation strategies will be key to supporting the decarbonisation of the EU building stock while National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) outline measures contributing to reaching these targets. What does this mean for research and innovation in the building renovation sector? Will this new framework be able to mobilise investments to drive innovation in urban retrofit, smart technologies and skills?
