REMOTE has the objective to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of two fuel cells-based H2 energy storage solutions (one integrated P2P system, one nonintegrated P2G+G2P system). 4 DEMOs supplied by renewable electricity will installed in either isolated micro-grids or off-grid remote areas.
DEMO 1 – Ginostra – (South of Italy): off-grid configuration (island); RES based on PV generators; residential loads available on-site; almost complete substitution of fossil fuels. End-user: ENEL Green Power (EGP), utility.
DEMO 2 – Agkistro – (Greece): isolated micro-grid application; RES based on hydro generators; industrial (SME) loads available on-site; complete substitution of fossil fuels; avoided costs for new transmission line. End-user: Horizon SA (HOR), owner of hydro plant.
DEMO 3 – Ambornetti – (North of Italy): off-grid configuration (remote Alps); RES based on hybrid system with PV-biomass CHP generators; residential loads available on-site; complete substitution of fossil fuels. End-user: IRIS srl (IRIS), stakeholder of the hamlet.
DEMO 4 – Froan Island – (Norway): isolated micro-grid application; RES based on hybrid system with PV+Wind generators; residential loads + fish industry available on-site; avoided costs for new sub-marine power line; almost complete substitution of fossil fuels (RES > 95%). End-user: Trønder Energi (TE), utility.
