KPI definition and selection

The objective of this deliverable is to identify and define meaningful KPIs (technical, environmental impact, economic and social).

Regulatory barriers analysis

A full and deep analysis of the obstacles and opportunities at the European regulatory landscape for up take for innovative decarbonised local energy systems will be presented

Energy nodes integration report

The designed Fog Ready Devices for the RENAISSANCE demonstrators will be fully described These devices are responsible for realtime monitoring and control of their micro grid and are used to measure the overall energy related data

Output data framework

This deliverable consists on the collection of the data for each of the pilots, stakeholder requirements, expectations, a list of assets already available at the site, a list of potential envisaged components and systems and the KPIS for each site. The definition of the architecture of the data exchanges, specifying formats, standards and frequency of measurement data will also be introduced.

Final assessment report: C2C market assessment, second assessment demonstrator sites, policy recommendations local authorities and EC

An assessment of the potential of smart clusters of energy island that can act as a virtual power plant and enter eg R2 markets secondary reserves and trade directly with the TSODSO market will be defined in this deliverable

Requirements, expectations and objectives for each demo site

The objective of this deliverable is to collect both technical and socio-economic data from the demo sites defined as requirements, expectations and objectives for each demo site.

Report on ranking of technology-business designs for demo sites

This deliverable will contain the different technology preferences for each demo site when it comes to local energy community design considering the participating stakeholders for each site Moreover it will provide an overview and ranking of which scenarios best represents the objectives for the future of local energy communities
