Batteries as a Central Element for Urban Sustainability
BATERIAS 2030 mobilizing project results from a joint reflection of several agents that seek, in an integrated and structured way, to answer to the decarbonisation and dissemination of sustainable energy communities. To this end, the project's goal is to develop batteries of the future and introduce these technological developments into solutions for urban environment. Thus, the initiative is based on development of disruptive technologies that can be integrated throughout all value chains, being marked by reliable, sustainable, easily scalable state-of-art solutions that are also accessible to the consumer. As such, BATERIAS 2030 leverages science and technology around the theme of production, storage and management of sustainable energy.
The project will be developed by a consortium composed of 14 companies, able to value the results expected in each PPS (Process, Product, Service), but also by 9 non-business entities that own technologies and specific knowledge of high added value in the field. The project comprises 6 PPS, 4 of which focused on technical-scientific domains (PPS1 to PPS4), being the resulting technologies integrated and demonstrated in an urban space (PPS5), seeking to establish an energy community, based on a low-carbon micro-network, promoting the replacement of fossil fuel consumption and, thus, the reduction of CO2 in the urban space.
As a result, 28 new technologies are expected to be developed and, in the end, these must be applied in a living laboratory, establishing an energy community based on a low-carbon micro-network.
PPS1 – Batteries of new generation: Development of new generation of batteries (third generation of lithium batteries and redox batteries) and advanced systems for storing electrical surpluses in hydrogen;
PPS2 – Enhancing the life cycle of batteries: Development of an end-of-life lithium-ion battery diagnostic tool; end-of-life battery reuse and recovery processes for new applications (2nd life), such as energy storage from renewable sources (solar and wind); and lithium battery recycling technology and processes;
PPS3 – Decentralized production technologies: Development of perovskite solar cells for integration into frontage of the building; optimization of wind turbines for urban environment; and development of modular concrete systems capable of generating energy through the exploration and combination of different technologies;
PPS4 – Energy management platform: Development of solutions that allow efficient and integrated management of energy storage systems, including consumption and production monitoring systems, IoT solutions to support management; and predictive models of production and consumption;
PPS5 – Living laboratory for decarbonization: Development of a living laboratory for decarbonization, which assumes itself as an energy community, and which combines multiple technologies, namely in terms of energy production, storage and consumption, through the redefinition of energy management practices, in a context of an intelligent urban environment;
PPS6 – Project management and dissemination.
