Feasibility studies and analysis
Elaborate studies were but still are carried out in Belgium according to the technical and economic feasibility of neighourhood batteries within our low and voltage grid that is medium. The effective implementation that is first lacking.
Nevertheless, in industry experience is paramount to gain understanding within the effective behavior and relationship aided by the surrounding system(s) and also start the required alterations in the allowing framework. Thus the target ended up being set: in 2014 Th!nk E included the implementation that is actual of neighbourhood battery pack in a proposition when it comes to H2020 EU-project TALE and springtime 2018 that area of the work had been prepared to be kicked down. The main focus ended up being on applying battery pack on a weak electricity line.
The challenge that is first the choice of a place.
Present legislation on building licenses will not come with a neighbourhood battery pack. It is hard to give an explanation for societal worth of neighbourhood batteries once the professionals on building licenses never have yet been confronted by electricity areas, quality of electricity and curtailment of tiny scale PVs. Thus, it took many months to go over using the regional and Flemish federal government. Whenever a bit of land had been in the market regarding the demonstration web web site in Oud Heverlee, it seemed the perfect possibility: the initial notarial act that mentioned a neighbourhood battery pack ended up being a well known fact.
