The pilot site for the Barcelona demonstration is the Rambla del Celler sports, located in Sant Cugat. This centre is currently consuming electricity and gas from the grid as well as producing its own energy through a hybrid solar-thermal system.
Smart tools will be developed on the specific site of high energy demand, in order to carry out DR optimisation. Alongside, additional storage solutions (thermal) or (electrical) the use of distributed Li-Ion batteries will be addressed along with the analysis of the capability of distributed end-user energy storage facilities to help the grid penetration of RES.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 731268
