RENERMap

Dynamic map of renewable potential at municipality scale

Description

The main objective of the RENERMap project (Dynamic map of renewable potential at municipality scale) is to achieve a detailed analysis of the renewable potential available at local level, including both roofs and municipality land, to respond to the demand of energy that it generates, and to help to achieve the development of self-sufficient energy municipalities. The developments of the project will support municipalities guiding their decision-making towards a renewable energy transition that contributes to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and the construction of more sustainable municipalities.

Objectives

  • To develop an assessment of the renewable resources in land and buildings. 
  • To transform resources into energy potential through the evaluation and implementation of renewable technologies. 
  • To assess the energy demand of buildings. 
  • To compare the final energy balance determining the energy self-sufficiency of the municipality. 
  • To develop a web prototype that allows visualizing the results under a simple, intuitive and friendly interface. 

Actions

  • Development of algorithms for the evaluation of the renewable potential. 
  • Development of algorithms for estimating thermal and electricity demand. 
  • Evaluation of the energy balance of the municipality. 
  • Validation of the visualization prototype of the renewable potential at municipal scale. 

Expected Results

  • Catalogue of renewable technologies of interest at local level. 
  • Open source algorithms for the evaluation of renewable potential. 
  • Open source algorithms for estimating thermal and electrical demand. 
  • Energy balance assessment engine at local level. 
  • Prototype for the visualization of the renewable potential at municipal scale.
