New video: CROSSBOW scenario “Hybrid RES Dispatchable Plants”
This video presents the scenario (high-level use case) of the CROSSBOW project “Hybrid RES Dispatchable Plants”. CROSSBOW studies Hybrid Renewable Energy Sources (RES) plants with storage capability, hybridising with biomass to achieve 100 % renewable and sustainable energy and providing a stable and reliable power independently of meteorological circumstances. The scenario demonstrates how to handle the distpacthability problem of certain RES (PV and wind mainly) at the generation level. Non-dispatchable RES technologies are clustered and internally compensated in new configurations using storage and advanced control technologies, the ensemble is considered as a dispatchable plant connected to the grid at a Point of Common Coupling (PCC).
The demonstrations in this scenario measured the impact of the CROSSBOW Hybrid RES Dispatchable Unit (RES-DU) which has been awarded by the European Innovation Radar. This product has been developed by COBRA INSTALACIONES Y SERVICIOS S.A (Spain).
CROSSBOW is evaluating the nine demo clusters (high-level use cases) until the end of the project; this includes the technical validation of the CROSSBOW products and the evaluation of the socio-economic impact of the project solutions and business models. Those demonstrations are measuring the impact of the CROSSBOW products in real conditions enabled by TSOs of the national electricity grid from 8 different countries (Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Serbia), as well as in Slovenia through a renewable energy cooperative. To explain each scenario nine videos are being produced. Watch it here.
