The HYBRIS project, financed by the EU and part of the “Hybridisation of battery systems for stationary energy storage H2020-LC-BAT-9” call, of the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme, aims to optimise systems as highly efficient, economic and sustainable hybrid solutions in micro-network applications. It presents a fully systematic, collaborative and integrated approach to the development and deployment of an innovative battery-based hybrid storage system, combining diverse and complementary state-of-the-art TRL 5-6 technology assets from leading industry, universities and OTRs, as well as ICT tools for viable and cost-effective optimization and further market introduction. All this by demonstrating and validating its concepts in 3 use case applications in 3 pilot sites in 3 countries (Italy, Belgium and The Netherlands).
HYBRIS is an integrated industrially driven action, that will answer to this challenge in 4 key points:
- Viability and cost effectiveness: of the use and integration of novel Hybrid Electric Energy Storage (HEES) system coupled with innovative microgrid system local RES generation and loads, (in particular residential, tertiary buildings and EV charges stations). Achieved by the integration and validation of a suite of technologies, tools and methods enabling their easy application and massive deployment.
- Technical: pursuing the technical optimization of the HEES system in 3 use case applications covering respectively 1) Energy services in island grids 2) Energy services in private grids 3) EV charging stations in e-mobility,
- Optimization and integration.
- Validation: by using the 3 demonstration sites as open case studies representing the 3 different use case applications and situations found throughout Europe, to leverage knowledge, key exploitable results, adapted business models and market-oriented dissemination for maximizing impact and wide adoption of these novel heating and cooling technologies and approach.
The consortium is formed by 15 European partners, including IDP (leader), LOMARTOV, IREC, COMET GESINCO or HESStec. This project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 963652.
