Decentralised energy systems

Vienna's power system is increasingly influenced by distributed renewable energy resources. How can new business models and technologies contribute to the management of energy use to better meet this fluctuating power supply?

Solution description

Vienna, like many cities has a problem with efficient energy distribution. Excess energy is produced as a side product and is not used and often dumped.

We want to use this excess energy and want to store this energy in our storage units to provide it cheaply to users in a smaller unit. Our approach is to buy it, when it's at its cheapest (in least demand) and sell it when it is at its highest demand, which is in the morning and evening for a profit margin. The storage units will be installed under streets during already existing road constructions, to reduce installation costs and avoid further soil sealing.

Mentionable benefits are grid stability, cost reduction and the enhancement of the performance of renewable energy systems.
