Batteries, Integration of renewables, Development of energy communities
Decentralisation of electricity generation also requires decentralised and economic solutions to integrate more renewable energy sources, increase security of supply and decarbonise the future European energy system. The MERLON project proposes the development of energy communities by combining and integrating decentralised storage with renewable technologies such as photovoltaic solar energy for the optimisation of the energy system, including demand response, optimisation of electric vehicle charging and synergies with other energy carriers at local level, offering flexibility to ensure optimal grid management. COBRA leads the design engineering of battery electric storage solutions, develops the control software and performs its grid-connected operation. During the project these batteries will be installed together with photovoltaic solar energy installations in Spain and Austria in order to provide flexible electricity generation and distribution.
