Topic(s):SUSTDEV-1 - Sustainable energy systems
SUSTDEV-2003-CONCERTO - Managing energy demand and renewable energy supply in high performance communities
Call for proposal:FP6-2003-TREN-2
Funding scheme:IP - Integrated Project
The TETRAENER project is based on the premise of creating residential communities where external energy dependency is reduced by optimising the supply/demand balance through an improvement in energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources, together with demand monitoring and control applications. TETRAENER encompasses 2 new urban developments in the cities of San Sebastian (Spain) and Geneva (Switzerland) and 1 observer community in Frankfurt (Germany).
These communities can offer a series of synergies with regard to the priorities set out in the CONCERTO initiative: Large-scale integration of renewable energy sources: biomass installations, high efficiency solar thermal systems, photovoltaic-solar systems, wind installations integrated in residential areas, and harnessing of Lake Lman as a heat source in Geneva.Eco-buildings: Passive solar energy harnessing criteria, targets of maximum energy efficiency, integration of RES and application of innovative legislation.
