In this second episode of the RegEnery Talks, Geoffrey Orlando (Planair, Switzerland) and Sean Lyons (Walton Institute of Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland) first provide necessary background about the regulatory and political environment of their respective countries before sharing their experience about the technological solutions they are developing for two energy parks.
At Y-Park in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland), Planair is studying the effects of the joint development of photovoltaic and electro-mobility in a micro-grid. Geoffrey Orlando speaks about the impact of electric mobility and Vehicle-To-Grid (V2G) on the energy balance of a micro-grid in a real life scenario before presenting potential business models for the value created based on different scenarios in order to take advantage of battery electric vehicle flexibility.
The Walton Institute of Waterford Institute of Technology (Ireland) is developing a software platform which facilitates the development of a Renewable Energy Community and its integration in 2 trial sites. Sean Lyons gives further information about mechanisms such as Peer to Peer Energy Trading, Storage Technologies, Renewable Energy Generation and Market Integration, which enable communities to take control of their energy profiles and engage with the market as prosumers. He also discusses economic model scenarios based on potential mechanisms that may be employed on the transposition of the EU Directives.
