The research project T.I.L.O.S. (Technology Innovation for the Local Scale, Optimum Integration of Battery Energy Storage) aims to develop and operate an intelligent, innovative hybrid system using solar and wind energy, which, through a battery storage system, will cover (to a micro-grid level) the electricity needs of the residents of the village of Livadia (~ 500 residents) on the island of Tilos in the Dodecanese.
The TILOS Project was approved as the first among 80 competing projects under the European Programme HORIZON 2020 (https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020). The project is a multinational effort of a total of 13 European partners from seven different countries (Greece, Germany, France, Sweden, Italy, and Spain).
On June 20 2017, Tilos Project has been awarded winner in the ENERGY ISLANDS category and in the CITIZEN’S AWARD category of the EU Sustainable Energy Awards (#EUSEW). With regard to the CITIZEN’S AWARD, the project was evaluated as a finalist from a panel of experts and the12 selected finalists were submitted for a public voting.
Eunice Laboratories, member of the Eunice Energy Group (EEG), with its long-term experience in renewable energy applications in Greece, participates in the TILOS Project as a Technical Manager with the role of facilitating and commissioning of all micro-grid system components, plus ensuring the micro-grid’s operation. It is worth mentioning, that the company has successfully managed to conclude the first-ever Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for a Hybrid Station in Greece with the Grid Operator for Non-Interconnected Islands (NII) allowing the demonstration phase to take presently place and contributing in the configuration of the legal framework for hybrid systems in Greece .
The Group’s goal is to disseminate the results of the TILOS Project and to replicate the investment model in similar projects in Aegean islands and abroad. Eunice Energy Group (EEG) is committed to the renewable energy and its focal position in the energy sector in the future. The Group is well placed for the next steps of the energy transition.
The Group is confident that the full-scale integration of renewable energy systems in small grids, combined with energy storage and energy management systems will become a reality in the future.
The Hybrid Power System’s components are comprised of:
a medium-sized wind turbine of nominal capacity of 800kW
592 PV panels of nominal capacity of 270Wp each (total capacity of 160kWp)
8 Inverters of output capacity of 20kW
Two battery containers each of 1.4MWh nominal energy capacity
Two inverters each of 500kVA max. apparent capacity
