REGEN-BY-2

All-in-one integrated energy plant capable of converting any type of RES thermal sojurce in enegy vectors such as electric,heating and-or cooling.

Description

REGEN-BY-2 will provide a decisive contribution to EU energetic objectives by developing a novel multi-generation, all-in-one integrated energy plant capable of converting any type of RES thermal source, from low to high-temperature, in energy vectors such as electric, heating and-or cooling powers,thus enabling the simultaneous supply to multiple typologies of end-users with different energy demands.

This technology, enabled by two-phase fluids machines, has been recently patented by the project partner TIFEO, a star-up founded in 2018 and a potential European Unicorn.

Objectives

  • To develop alab-scale prototype of a highly efficient thermodynamic cycle for the revalorization of renewable thermal energy sources to trigeneration.
  • Perform experimental test on the laboratory scale prototypes of the expander/compressor.

Actions

  • Design the two-phase expander/compressor via mathematical models in design point conditions and in steady off-desgin conditions and CFD analysis.
  • Design the whole plant, selection of the working fluid and thrmodynamic sensitivity analysis.
  • Building the laboratory scale prototype of the REGEN-BY-2- plant.
  • Develop of a control system.

Expected Results

  • REGEN-BY-2 will demosntrate the functionality and advantages of the patented renewable multi-generation technology by designing, constructing and experimenting with a lab-scale prototype.
  • The result will be a highly efficient turnkey multi-generation, all-in-one Combined Heating and Power (CHP), Combined Cooling and Power (CCP) and Combined Cooling Heating and Power (CCHP) device.
