Results

  • Generated 160,000 kWh / year free of greenhouse gases through the installation photovoltaic panels (40 kWp) and a 120 kW wind turbine.
  • The emissions of 65 tonnes of CO2 were avoided thanks to the management of dispatchable loads and the use of the EVs fleet that is integrated into the microgrid.
  • Test and validate different energy management strategies to ensure that all the renewable energy generated is either used or stored for later use.
  • Reduction of peak energy consumption due to the energy management of about 100 kW of dispatchable loads.
  • Tested the capacity to offer to the distribution network, when legislation allows, the microgrid capacity as voltage and frequency control. The microgrid can contribute to the stability of the network and to the reduction of generation reserve capacity (combined cycles of gas, fuel or carbon generators).

The success of the project and the dissemination of its results have allowed a greater awareness and understanding of microgrids, which, in turn, entails:

  • Increase in the generation of electricity from CO2-free sources, such as solar photovoltaic and wind energy. Thanks to energy storage technologies, all the generated renewable energy will be consumed even in areas with high availability of renewable energies (for example: Jofemar’s factory in Peralta, where 80% of the electricity comes from renewable sources).
  • Greater stability of the network, which will increase the generation of renewable energy by more than 40% by the year 2020. In addition, distributed storage will reduce the need for reserve generation capacity.
