Microgeneration at delicate urban environments

This project is based on evidences that solar and wind energy production is limited the availability of the renewable resource and can't be controlled. For this reason integrated system are better than isolated ones. The aim is to show the technical and economical feasibility of integrated systems in order to make the best use of renewable resources for energy production.


The purpose is to build a pilot unit with various integrated systems based on renewable resources that will able the use of hydrogen as an energy storage mechanism. The continuous optimization of this pilot units will provide multiple purposes for energy consumption as electricity and heat to be used in domestic hot water the environment climate.


The range of advantages includes, low size of the system, easy integration into delicate urban environments, decentralized installations next to the points of consumption as complement for traditional systems. The sizing of this systems will depend on the consumption profile, but in some cases it can satisfy all the energetic needs.


This Project is Co-funded by INAlentejo in the sphere of “Programa Estratégico da REDE ECOS” - Energy and Sustainable buildings.
