SCORES

Self Consumption Of Renewable Energy by hybrid Storage systems

SCORES will combine and optimize the multi-energy generation, storage and consumption of local renewable energy (electricity and heat) and grid supply, bringing new sources of flexibility to the grid, and enabling reliable operation with a positive business case in Europe’s building stock.

SCORES optimizes self-consumption of renewable energy and defers investments in the energy grid. SCORES is a game changer in the European energy transition towards a zero-energy built environment.

The SCORES concept (Figure below) is based on a hybrid system combining effectively and efficiently solutions that harvest electricity and heat from the sun, store electricity, convert electricity into heat, store heat, and manage the energy flows in the building. The following ideas and assumptions are the starting point for the development of this highly inter-disciplinary overall concept:

  1. Delivery of economic value for home-owner and grid operator by storing energy at the lowest cost by using hybrid storage (market-pull);
  2. A breakthrough in optimal integration of the key technologies for storage and conversion required for a hybrid system;
  3. A breakthrough is required regarding cost and compactness of (electrical and thermal) storage technologies;
  4. Demonstration in relevant use cases is required to prove the economic and technological viability;
  5. For successful exploitation, the full knowledge, value, and supply chain has to be mobilized.

SCORES approach consists of 3 technology development lines and 3 integration and demonstration lines as depicted below. The aims of this approach are threefold:

  1. Further develop, optimize and enhance key technologies in heat and electricity storage and collection by advancing them from TRL 3-4 to 5-6
  2. Effectively integrate these key technologies in a hybrid system, including a sophisticated Building Energy Management System (BEMS) for optimized monitoring and control.
  3. Broad large-scale demonstration of the integration, optimization and operation this system in real buildings in 2 European climate zones with and without district heating connection (pre-requisite for TRL 6).

Abstract

The SCORES project aims is to develop and demonstrate in the field a building energy system including new compact hybrid storage technologies, that optimizes supply, storage and demand of electricity and heat in residential buildings, increasing self-consumption of local renewable energy in residential buildings at the lowest cost. Combination and optimization of multi-energy generation, storage and consumption of local renewable energy (electricity and heat) brings new sources of flexibility to the grid and giving options for tradability and economic benefits, enabling reliable operation with a positive business case in Europe’s building stock. SCORES optimizes self consumption of renewable energy and defers investments in the energy grid. The SCORES concept is to develop several key-technologies in parallel, i.e. second-life Li-ion batteries, compact thermal storage by Phase-Change Materials, high performance hot-water heat pump supplied by hybrid photovoltaic and solar collectors (PVT), Chemical Looping Combustion heat storage (seasonal storage), integrated through a smart Building Energy Management System (BEMS), and to demonstrate them together in a hybrid energy system. Full-scale demonstration will be done with regulatory/normative, economic and market boundaries taken into account. Demonstration of the integrated hybrid energy system will take place in two real buildings representative of different climate and energy system configurations for 3 cases, in Northern Europe with and without a heat grid, and in Middle/ Southern Europe without a heat grid. Through smart combination and optimization on the system level SCORES will evaluate technical, economic and environmental benefits being larger than the sum of their parts. The partners in the consortium are the key actors for the required technologies that will be integrated in the project, representing strong industrial partners (OEMs) in the value chain for future exploitation of compact hybrid energy system.
