The KEZO Research Centre is primarily a laboratory space for research and development work in the field of clean energy technologies. However, it also fulfils the function of a living laboratory and demonstration unit. All locally available renewable energy sources (sun, wind, biomass) are used here, waste heat (for electricity and cooling) is utilized; heat, cold and electricity are stored (experimental storage of thermal energy in the ground, in large water reservoirs and using PCM materials; battery storage technologies including redox flow battery).
KEZO is a testing field for devices producing and storing heat, cold and electricity from renewable energy sources (RES) as well as testbed of software for management of generation and consumption of energy.
The installed technologies not only play the roles of demonstrators of modern technologies and research objects, but also act as functional systems that supply the buildings of the centre with heat, cold and electricity.
Planning, modelling and management of energy systems; Integration of RES and EV into the energy systems; PV, wind turbines, heat pumps, chillers, CHP testing; heat and electricity storage testing; demand side management; EV charging.
Testing of individual various CHP units, heat pumps, PV panels, wind turbines, electricity and heat storage, EV chargers, V2G. Testing of integration of renewable energy production and energy storage to the system. Testing of controllers for energy management system. Demand side management with existing infrastructure (e.g. 26 heat pumps, CHP, storage, EV).
KEZO is equipped with a local microgrid, redox flow and Li-ion batteries and heat storage, 26 heat pumps, CHPs (1-100kW)-microturbines, Stirling, fuel cell, absorption chillers, PV (200kW), gasifier, wind tunnel, solar simulator, V2G charger.
