Toward Sustainable Energy Communities

Giuseppe Anastasi, Marco Raugi

Abstract

Currently energy resources are adapted to user requests. In the perspective of an increasingly sustainable use of energy, it will be more and more useful to aggregate the consumption of groups of buildings of various types (for example for residential, office, commercial and industrial use), forming the so-called "Energy Communities". In that way the overall requests for energy can be easily adapted to the available energy resources, in terms of both overall consumption and hourly distribution. The AUTENS (Sustainable Energy Autarchy) project aims to identify possible solutions for the complete energy self-sufficiency of "Energy Communities" through innovative methods optimizing the integration of electrical and thermal systems (generators and storages), supplied only by renewable sources produced locally. This will be targeted by means of suitable integration of ICT technologies, artificial intelligence and social sciences. We intend to examine situations in which it is not possible, or sustainable, to use the primary power and gas grid, and therefore the use of energy from an "Energy Community" must be made with only renewable sources to be produced locally through solar and wind energy, geothermal and biomass. The project also proposes the construction of some demonstrators.
