IDP participates in the European Union financed R&D project Hypergrid
IDP participates in the Hypergryd project funded by the EU and framed in the call “H2020-LC-GD-2020 Innovative land-based and offshore renewable energy Technologies and their integration into the energy system” of the Horizon 2020 Framework Program for Research and Innovation.
Hypergryd has a budget of 5.9 million euros over 3.5 years and its main objective is to develop a set of cost-effective, replicable, and scalable technical solutions to enable the integration of technologies based on renewable energy sources (RES) within thermal grids, as well as their link with electricity grids.
Hypergryd includes the development of innovative key components, in parallel with innovative and integrated ICT services, consisting of a set of scalable tools to properly manage the increasing complexity of systems from building to Local Energy Community (LEC) levels and accelerate the sustainable transformation, planning and modernization of district heating and cooling (DHC) networks towards the fourth and fifth generation. It also aims to develop real-time management of electrical and thermal energy flows in the coupled energy network complex, including the synergies between them.
During the project, Hypergryd solutions will be implemented in 4 Live-in-the-Labs (LiLs) in 3 representative climates and use cases provided by the consortium, with a special focus on their cost-effectiveness and potential replicability to achieve the main objectives.
The project involves a consortium of 19 companies and a top level European institutions in Spain, Sweden, Italy, Germany, Austria, Poland and Belgium.
