Technological solutions for Local Energy Positive Balance Communities (LEPC)
The objective of the Cervera HySGRID+ network is to strengthen the technological capacity of Spanish Technology Centres with a high level of complementarity and promote their solid cooperation with the ultimate aim of researching and developing new technological solutions that facilitate the creation of local energy positive balance communities (LEPC) with high efficiency and based on hybrid renewable power and storage systems.
In the framework of this network, CARTIF aims to advance in the definition of criteria and methodologies for the planning and design of local positive energy communities and in the knowledge and improvement of technologies for interconnection and exchange of energy between the thermal and electrical grids.
- Develop decentralized and efficient management of the energy resources of a LEPC.
- Ensure stability and reliability.
