SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

DER IREC 22@ MICROGRID is an industrial research project focused in the creation of new products and services in the domain of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and the Electrical Vehicle (EV).

The experimental research environment is an electric microgrid located at Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (Institut de Recerca en Energia de Catalunya - IREC).

PROJECT BENEFITS

“A microgrid is a system that unites diverse micro-generators and loads into a single system, which provides electrical as well as heat energy - The CERtos Microgrid concept.

Optimum management of micro-grids will enable in the future: energy efficiency, emission reduction, increased use of renewable energies, reduction of energy costs, optimum power supply security & minimisation of wasted electricity.
