Name of the project: Optimagrid

OptimagridDescription: The project aims to define, design, develop and implement intelligent control systems of energy that facilitate the management real-time of a microgrid of electric energy applied to an industrial area with high penetration rate of renewable energy, in order to change the concept ‘pollutant’ associated to industrial areas, by different another: “ecological industrial areas capable of developing its own technology”.

These models applied to industrial areas, by enabling an increasing renewable energy use, reduce energy consumption and optimize the systems to mitigate the CO2 emissions. The environment is beneficiated and all those companies and organizations in SUDOE industrial areas can see their energy bills cut down.

Project Partners with the decisive involvement research and development about the microgrid field, intended to disseminate the results throughout SUDOE regions, which means an opportunity for companies to implement and/or to develop proprietary technologies and create new services or products.

The project objectives are:

  • Creating a database which covers all the industrial areas SUDOE area under study, classified according to the point of view of similarity of micro-grid. This database will facilitate the dissemination of results once they have identified all potential beneficiaries of the project in SUDOE.
  • Guide to Good Practice, which will reflect the measures to be applied by the case studies in order to implement conservation measures and energy efficiency.
  • Development of training materials and outreach, to raise awareness of the industrial areas on environmental issues.
  • Study of the renewable potential exists in each of the selected case studies, taking into account all existing solar, wind, biomass, etc.
  • Promotion of R & D in industrial areas, on issues of energy storage.
  • Good practice guidance on measures to implement in such industrial areas for the integration of renewable energy.
  • Sensitize the industrial areas on environmental issue.

SUDOEFunding: The project has received funding from the Interreg IV B SUDOE programme.Image not available
