TetraEner: optimal balancing of demand and supply through RES in urban areas

Objective

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.
