THE FIRST GROUP OF PILOTS:
The research committee building of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki has been selected as pilot site for the installation of both 15 kWp PV system and 15 kWh ESS. Thе building is equipped with a building energy management system (BЕMS), thus allowing the full implementation and evaluation of the proposed innovative management scheme.
In this pilot site, a 20 kWh ESS will be additionally installed to the existing 20 kWp PV installation. The pilot site is located at the dormitories building of the Western Macedonia University οf Applied Sciences.
Six ESSs with nominal capacity of 7 kWh will be installed in five different prosumers with existing PV installations. Additionally, a 20 kWh ESS will be added to the existing PV installation in the municipality building of Nicosia.
Five current and new prosumers will be selected within the Plovdiv area for installing an ESS with a nominal capacity of 7 kWh to validate the performance of the proposed innovative management scheme.
7 kWh ESS will be established on the main building of the University of Skopje.
THE SECOND GROUP OF PILOTS:
The second group of pilots includes the installation of Smart meters in prosumers and consumers installations. Measurement data will be acquired continuously for a period of at least one year and an exhaustive statistical analysis will be performed to derive typical consumption and generation profiles for the Balkan-Med region.
