If we can get better at using the local energy sources more efficiently, we can reduce the emission of CO2.
When the sun shines on solar panels or the wind blows at wind turbines, we cannot always use this energy locally. So how do we ensure that the renewable energy produced in our region also benefits our region?
The CarpeDIEM project tries to answer that question.
The idea behind the project is that if we can get better at using the local energy sources more efficiently, we can reduce the emission of CO2, and at the same time reduce the energy loss, as the power does not have to be transported as far.
The CarpeDIEM project is managed by Robert Brehm from the University of Southern Denmark and the project runs until the beginning of 2019. The project is to focus and strengthen the trans-border and international competencies within intelligent use of energy to ensure that the region becomes a frontrunner within solutions to the climate and energy tasks of the EU.
What will take place?
The project will focus on efficient control of the energy for buildings. This is carried out through an analysis of the energy use and production – and based on this analysis, a number of simulation models will be developed, so that the local energy use can be optimised in relation to the production of energy. The models will also include the financial advantages available to the individual businesses.
What is in it for the businesses?
At the completion of the project, knowledge and technology related to energy control will be made available to the businesses free of charge; and ready to be implemented in buildings and cluster housing.
