HWG 100% RE Cities

 

Proposed Chair of HWG

Gerhard Stryi-Hipp

Fraunhofer-ISE (DE)

Proposed Vice-chair

Open for discussion

Members of the HWG (ideally at least one from each Technology Panel and other ETIP RHC members!

Ongoing call for experts

 

Name of the HWG

100% RE Cities

Proposed duration

From 01/2019 to 12/2021, duration: 24 months

Objectives / goals

·         Development of a definition of 100% RE Cities (in line with other initiatives, e.g. for Positive Energy Districts (PED), 100% RE Cities includes energy for heating, cooling, electricity and mobility)

·         Description of technological solutions (energy systems and components)
to achieve 100% RE Cities

·         Identification of technology gaps to design and implement 100% RE Cities and development of technology strategy and roadmap to fill these gaps with a specific focus on RE heat generation

·         Development of an overview on 100% RE Cities best practice examples

·         Evaluation of planning tools to design 100% RE Cities and development of a proposal, to develop missing tools

·         Evaluation of barriers and advantages to use RE sources for electricity and for non-electricity heat generation (solar thermal, geothermal, biomass)

·         Development of business cases and perspectives to use RE sources for heat generation

·         Development of a guideline to design optimized energy systems for 100% RE Cities under specific consideration of RE sources for non-electricity heat generation

Actions / description of methodology

·         Sub-groups will be established, e.g. on technologies evaluation, planning tools, guidelines (dependent on the number of participants)

·         Physical meetings are planned 2 times a year, discussing the progress

·         Webmeetings will take place in between the physical meetings (every 4-8 weeks)

·         Status of tools, technologies, etc. will be developed by literature recherché

·         Definitions, tools, guidelines will be developed by scientific partners and reviewed by the entire group
