Smart heating energy for the energy turnaround

The EU's "RealValue" project: integrating decentralised generation and consumers

Adapting consumption in line with generation

Within the project, a total of 1,250 households in Germany, Ireland and Latvia will be provided with smart, integrated energy systems. These consist of electrical storage heating systems and heat pumps that are linked via a joint control system. This way, energy consumption can be adapted in line with solar and wind power generation volumes.

German field trials in Mannheim

The field trials for the German project section will be held in Mannheim, where 400 households and businesses in total will be able to take part in “RealValue”. State-of-the-art storage heating systems, smart control systems for existing heating systems or smart meters will be installed in these households and businesses. The first systems will be put to use in the first quarter of 2016 and the field trials will run until 2017.

The "RealValue" consortium comprises energy companies, as well as electricity grid operators, IT companies and research institutes. These include:

MVV Energie
Beegy GmbH
Glen Dimplex Deutschland
Glen Dimplex Ireland
The University of Oxford
Teknologian Tutkimuskeskus VTT
ESB Networks
University College Dublin
Deutsches Institut Fuer Wirtschaftsforschung
SSE Airtricity
Intel Labs Europe
Rigas Tehniska Universitate

The first systems were installed in the autumn of 2016 and the field trials will run until 2018.
