In recent years the energy paradigm is shifting from big-size centralized power plants to small-medium size distributed generation plants injecting power in a bi-directional power flow grid. For this reason, a new concept called “Smart energy system”, is growing where both physical networks (electricity, natural gas…) and non-physical networks (mobility and citizens/communities) have to interact towards the unique purpose: reduce energy carbon footprint and guarantee an affordable power supply for everyone.

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.
