Beyond Bankrupt Bankables

This presentation focuses on the current state of the solar PV industry and how the current value chain exposes the rooftop solar PV segment to unacceptable financial risks. As it becomes more and more clear that terms like “tier 1” and “bankability” are not providing the level of reliability and certainty investors expect and that a brand is only bankable until it is bankrupt where do you go next? The answer is a back to basics approach with a clear focus on accountability and energy production. My presentation will detail how the PV industry and value chain need to change in order to meet the demand of the residential and commercial rooftop segment and offer the financial security they deserve.

The INTENSYS4EU (INTegrated ENergy SYStem, a pathway for EUrope) project is a coordination and support Action group supported by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme. The overarching goals of the INTENSYS4EU project are two-fold: To support the further integration of innovative solutions in view of hosting 45% of variable renewables by 2030 while operating the energy system in a safe, stable and secure way; and to extend the existing Research and Innovation roadmaps through permanent and direct interactions with the impacted energy system stakeholders and all the Member States in view of validating the portfolio of innovative solutions via appropriate funding mechanisms.

GOFLEX - Business Models demonstrated in a cellular energy system based on 100% renewables

GOFLEX supports the cellular bottom-up approach: On the first level, each prosumer and each microgrid tries to achieve a balance between generation and consumption. On the next level local energy retailers act as virtual power plant operators who try to achieve a balance between local generation and consumption. The TSO in this model has rather the role of an insurance, if the mechanism fails.  The key question is, apart from how to get enough local generation capacity, how can such a system collect enough flexibility to be stable and how can the local DSO benefit from it.

UPGRID, proven solutions for operating present and future LV networks. Evaluation and opportunities

Real proven solutions to enable active demand and distributed generation flexible integration, through a fully controllable LOW Voltage (LV) and medium voltage distribution grid] project is developing and validating solutions to enable the implementation of advanced functionalities over existing technology, to form a truly integrated intelligent system to be ready for operating the grid of the future. With this project an improvement in the monitoring and controllability of LOW Voltage and medium voltage grids is expected, in order to handle the technical challenges associated with the integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), as end-users get closer to the energy system (e.g. increase consumer participation in the market). To achieve all this UPGRID relies on four big demonstrators which are in operation now and reporting useful information. UPGRID is a HORIZON 2020 EC funded project.

Elsa: Energy Storage based on 2nd Life Batteries - 6 Pilots in 4 EU-Countries

The presentation will focus first on how the project Energy Local Storage Advanced system (ELSA) brings distributed storage solutions to maturity. The project’s objective is to enable their integration into the energy system and their commercial use. ELSA addresses existing development needs by combining 2nd life batteries with an innovative local ICT-based Energy Management System in order to provide a low-cost, scalable and easy-to-deploy battery energy storage system. Decentralised small- and medium-size energy storage systems provide much greater operating flexibility than today’s energy systems. They ensure a reliable energy supply for buildings and districts and thus enable the integration of a high share of intermittent renewable energy sources.
