Up to 80% of total energy consumption in the EU is attributed to urban areas, mostly with historical urban centres. At the same time, low carbon energy supplies in the style of energy storages, especially in historical urban centres, is a rarity in central Europe. This is mainly because of strict architectural protection constraints, higher implementation costs and often also conflicts with town planning policies.

The STORE4HUC project aims to improve territorially based low-carbon energy planning strategies. It will enrich policies that support climate change mitigation in historical city centres by focusing on improved urban and spatial planning for integrating energy storage systems to enhance the public institutional and utility capabilities. 

The partners will develop policy recommendations and identify suitable integrated technological solutions to overcome low carbon development barriers in historic centres. They will also facilitate the development of open energy and load management systems for energy efficiency and use of renewables. With its concepts and pilot systems, STORE4HUC will provide smart city test beds, where technicalities will be reconciled with historical and architectural values.

Presentazione del Progetto

Il progetto, a cui partecipano enti e istituzioni di 5 Paesi europei, si pone come obiettivo principale lo sviluppo di sistemi di approvvigionamento energetico sostenibili nei centri storici cittadini, capaci di abbattere le emissioni grazie all’utilizzo di sistemi di produzione di energie rinnovabili collegati a sistemi di stoccaggio energetico.

Pilot in LendaVA, Slovenia

Public Library in Lendava
The pilot of a paraffin-based latent storage attached to a geothermal heating system is a highly innovative investment in Slovenia. Lendava’s library, a neo-baroque villa (1906) will be connected to the district heating network and a paraffin cell buffer-based energy storage system will be implemented.

Outlook: Thermos Flask Serves as Example for Sustainable Energy Storage

In a fascinating new project, the citizens of Heidelberg receive a new sustainable energy storage tower with award-winning look. This energy storage tower will be completed in 2020 and is more than a sustainable energy storage cylinder: a knowledge center, tourist attraction and hopefully a city icon.

Novi projekt: store4huc

Glavni cilj projekta Store4HUC je unaprijediti i obogatiti strategije energetskog i prostornog planiranja koje su usmjerene na povijesne gradske jezgre usredotočujući se na integraciju sustava za pohranu energije u njih. U projektu ukupne vrijednosti 1.726.608,70 eura FER će razviti programske alate za planiranje optimalnog rada sustava pohrane energije u okruženju povijesnih gradskih jezgri pri čemu se poštuju specifična ograničenja takvih zaštićenih sredina.

Store4huc projektbeginn

Das neue europäische Projekt Store4HUC entwickelt Lösungen für erneuerbare Energien und ihre Speicherung in denkmalgeschützten Gebäuden. 

„Denkmalgeschützte Häuser mit erneuerbaren Energien zu versorgen und diese zu speichern ist oft schwierig: Sichtbare Veränderungen am Gebäude sind nicht möglich und Einbauten oft schwierig. Dafür sind fantasievolle Lösungen gefragt“, so Dr. Wolfgang Hofstetter vom  Klima-Bündnis.
