ABB Europe: Factory in Costa Rica

Context and motivation

Electricity prices in Costa Rica are the highest in central America, for this reason companies, especially ones with high energy consumption, are looking to become more flexible and less grid-dependent.

Status quo

The factory was exposed to all variations in energy price, peak-loads, and peak-hours tariffs, leading to high energy bills. The facility relied 100% on grid electricity. The manufacturing center included three main sources of loads: processing plant, production waste treatment, and distribution unit. Two diesel generator units were also available as back-up.
Average base load: 1,4 MW.

Applied strategy

Techno-economical optimization, gathering of weather data, peak-shaving. Analysis of three integration scenarios for different combinations of rooftop-PV and Lithium-Ion batteries on the premises.

Study results

LCoE reduction up to 10 %, leading to a forecasted ROI of 70 % over a project lifetime of 25 years.

Schneider Electric: Integrated energy building in Berlin

Context and motivation

Planners are looking for a solution that provides fast profitability analysis considering as many real life factors as possible. This implies taking into account a variety of different effects when accounting for more complex and “sector-coupled” systems.
Most current methods are very limited, i.e. including only a restricted number of technologies. Also, their application is highly time consuming, as every system component needs to be dimensioned individually.

Status quo

A medium-sized condominium in Berlin (135 MWhel/a). was subject of investigation.
The building’s energy efficiency needs to be benchmarked and KPIs need to be defined. This is done in accordance to ISO 50001:2018, including both electricity, heating, and cooling efficiency.

Applied strategy

Techno economical optimization, load profile generation, power-to-heat, electrical autharchy. Elaboration of one scenario including CHP, PV, Wind Turbines, Heat Pumps, Compression Chiller, Boiler and Heat Storage.

Study results

LCoE reduction: electricity 37%, heating 55%, cooling 29%. Self-sufficiency level: 70%. The study shows high savings potential for the building, making investment attractive (estimated break-even-time: 4 years).

E.ON Off-Grid: Off-Grid System in Sierra Leone

Context and motivation

Off-Grid renewable systems gain attention in the Africa region, due to the numerous islands, drylands and high costs of transportation for fossil fuels and unreliable electric grid infrastructure.

Status quo

The kenema site is running mainly on diesel generators, leading to high LCoE and CO2 emission. Integration of renewables is desirable.

Applied strategy

Techno-economical and environmental optimization, load profile generation, CO2 reduction, load-following genset operation.
Elaboration of 2 scenarios including PV, Wind Turbine and Battery Systems.

Study results

LCoE and CO2 reduction of 48 % & 84 % respectively.
Increased renewable share from 0 to 91 %.
