Green Energy park - Smart Multi Energy Lab

DESCRIPTION

The Green Energy Park (GEP) is a joint project of the Free University of Brussels (VUB), the University Hospital Brussels (UZ Brussel), Flux50 (cluster) and includes the development and operation of a research campus in the Research Park of Zellik with a focus on four research areas, one of them being ‘Energy and mobility transition’.

GEP wants to be a large-scale testing ground, expertise and training center to bridge the gap between research, innovation, realization and exploitation.

The first phase of the living lab involves the development of the Smart Village Lab. The Lab allows to test and demonstrate technology at the level of a distribution network, where interaction between a smart home and a smart neighborhood can be tested (1MW DSO, 160kW per system; neighborhood batteries 2*350kWh).

The living lab on energy and mobility addresses integration of products and services that want to grow from TRL 5-6 to TRL 8-9.

AREAS OF SPECIAL COMPETENCE

System integration; modeling multi-energy networks; low-T district heating and cooling; microgrid; DSO testground; business models; testing of tariffs and algorithms; demonstration; education of installers.

WHAT CAN BE TESTED

- Integration of components or algorithms for a smart home in a smart neighborhood
- Integration of components or algorithms in a multi-energy microgrid (power + thermal network)
- Components on a low-T district heating/cooling network (ex: specific heat pumps)

AVAILABLE INFRASTRUCTURE

Digital distribution cabine; smart homes; a smart street with communal energy storage, a low-T district heating; 15 EV parking lots smart charging infrastructure; off-grid option;
Metering system and data collection network.
