Clean Energy Invest participates in H2020 programme RENergetic

CEIP and New Docks will host one of the innovative demonstration sites in the  European H2020 collaboration project ‘RENERGETIC’.

The goal of the RENergetic project is to demonstrate the improvement of efficiency and energy autarky, the community involvement in and the socio-economic viability of three urban energy islands:  The New Docks in Ghent (BE), the Warta Campus in Poznan (PL) and the Hospital and Research campus in Segrate-Milan (Italy).

RENergetic empowers Renewable Energy Communities to inhabit Energy Islands based on an Economy of Quality (quality attributed to the value of living and working in a clean energy society), fueling their involvement in processes traditionally hidden for local communities such as heat supply.

The project will aid newly built districts to increase the amount of locally produced renewable energy and the energy efficiency of local energy systems. Moreover, It will help to place the consumer at the center of the energy transition.

In Ghent, CEIP will work together with IMEC and the University of Ghent to build a district model for smart energy and district heating systems, allowing leveraging both collective and private flexible assets in the local energy community. Using reinforcement learning IMEC will try to use the available flexibility of local EV charging stations. For the south field development of the district, a feasibility study will be executed to increase renewable energy production (e.g. Building-integrated PV) and local use of renewable energy (electricity storage, bi-directional charging of electric vehicles (EVs), direct line grids). The legal and regulatory conditions will be investigated for the integration of renewable and citizen energy communities (RECs/CECs) in newly built urban developments.
