SHREC – Smart hybrid renewable energy for communities

Project Details


This project studies smart hybrid renewable energy for communities (SHREC) considering heating, cooling and electricity markets and underlining the interactions between them, through utilizing renewable energy sources and storages to improve the energy efficiency at community level. The objective of this research is to find more sustainable energy solutions based on increasing renewable energy production and more intelligent energy distribution networks. The research will develop efficient modelling and optimization methods with emphasis on the design and operation of SHREC and design experiments to validate the developed models. The project is closely related to the real-life energy-intensive community planning; therefore it will be carried out by making full use of real data from communities. The developed methods and outcomes will contribute not only the scientific findings but also the engineering tools for planning and operating SHREC systems in Finland and other EU regions.
