Final conclusions from the OrPHEuS research project show the potential of hybrid energy grids for smart cities.

OrPHEuS explains that hybrid energy grids are energy systems in which existing individual grids (typically electricity, district heating and gas) are interconnected and operate collaboratively. The scheme relies on two key elements: • Coupling Points, e.g gas boilers (gas-to-heat), heat pumps (electricity-to-heat) and gas power plants (gas-to-electricity); • and Controlling Infrastructure. The OrPHEuS consortium conducted research to develop suitable control architecture, and to analyse any benefits derived from the proposed approach. As part of OrPHEuS project, two demonstration sites were studied. According to a statement, the results showed in both cases that the coupling of electric and heating domains combined with adapted collaborative control strategies allowed for increased use of distributed renewable energy sources in a cost-efficient manner. For example, in Ulm ...
