In the household pilot the companies In the household pilot the companies and knowledge institutes devise solutions in storing the fluctuating supply of sustainable solar and wind energy in batteries, in a hydrogen system and in the form of heat, combined with a heat pump. The use of hydrogen makes it possible to store energy from the summer, for wintertime use (seasonal storage).
The idea is to enhance efficiency by combining the various storage options in a single pilot. An additional advantage is that it is made clear if it is indeed technically and economically viable for developers and producers to launch installations of this scale size onto the market. With this pilot a demand in electrical energy of 10-12.000 kWh is assumed. This is sufficient to provide a house with electric power and heat.
The ultimate result is the realization of an autonomous, self-sufficient energy supply. It comprises an open, modular Power to Flex system on a pallet scale, upon which various solutions for energy and heat production, storage and control can be linked.
