Smart Urban Isle

The Smart Urban Isle (SUI) project pretends to move forward with the urban energy savings.

The Smart Urban Isle (SUI) project pretends to move forward with the urban energy savings. Based on a three cornerstones procedure, the SUI project aims at a whole new urban planning that allows cities to grow in a sustainable way. Consequently, we develop an innovative new concept for city planning, where cities are arranged and grow through small integrated areas. We will probe Smart Urban Isle as innovative basic energy unit in the Smart City.

City-zen: Comfort Cooling residential buildings in Houthaven district

Featured image

City-zen partners Westpoort Warmte and AEB have developed a plant which enables the use of cold from the adjacent river IJ for cooling of buildings in the Amsterdam Houthaven district.

City-zen was an international consortium, a program stimulating learning-by-doing in Grenoble and Amsterdam between March 2014 and November 2019. The results can be found in a booklet or in detailed reports. http://www.cityzen-smartcity.eu/home/reporting/deliverables/

City-zen: Virtual Power Plant

Featured image

Monetizing flexibility using a Virtual Power Plant, which incorporates solar-PV, load and home battery systems. It is not a real power plant but a virtual. Aggregating several small production units , like pv-rooftops, a power plant is created.

City-zen: smart grid in Amsterdam Nieuw West

Featured image

We are in the midst of the transition towards clean energy. The way we use, produce and trade energy is changing rapidly. In order to facilitate this transition, existing energy systems, of which the electrical grid is an essential component, need to be adapted and upgraded. Dutch grid operator Alliander is constantly working to make sure the grid remains efficient, reliable, safe, fast and cost effective.

City-zen was an international consortium, a program stimulating learning-by-doing in Grenoble and Amsterdam between March 2014 and November 2019. The results can be found in a booklet or in detailed reports. http://www.cityzen-smartcity.eu/home/reporting/deliverables/

Update October 2018:

The End-2-End smart grid in Amsterdam Nieuw West is connected to more than 10.000 dwellings. The End-2-End smart grid is fitted with sensors and/or remote controls on every voltage level – from the low voltage 400/230 V level to and including the high voltage 150kV level - enabling the DSO Liander to monitor and control loads and voltages. The first data from the monitoring equipment has been collected which provides insights into the robustness of the grid, now and in the future.

Conclusion measurements over the year 2017: the measurements indicates that the grid is very stable and no issues with grid stability are to be expected in the near future. The effects of experiments conducted with the Virtual Power Plant are expected to be clearly discernible in measurements on the low voltage level.

Some of the activities planned in 2018 and 2019:

  • Demonstration and monitoring of the functionalities of the Virtual Power Plant and Vehicle-to-grid
  • Four bidirectional charging stations are operational and 30+ home batteries are now actively trading on the day ahead market.
  • Energy Tradingwiththe Virtual Power Plantand further develop the needed algorithms.
  • Monitoring equipment and dashboard are developed.
  • Determining the value of VPP and V2G for grid capacity and quality management and what the value is for alternatives to grid enforcement.
  • Social research among the participants of the demonstration byworkshops, interviews and questionnaires.
  • Further develop the grid control model.Continue improving the needed algorithms for monitoring and control purposes.

The City-zen Methodology Approach For Urban Energy Transitions

Featured image

European cities and municipalities have considerable goals in becoming carbon neutral and energy self-sufficient in line with the Paris Agreement. To be successful in reaching climate ambitions we must start now, but it is complex and easier said then done. It requires radical changes such as far-reaching energy renovations, specific approaches, new heating networks, large-scale production facilities for solar power, geothermal energy and green gas. This needs the attention and action of all stakeholders: companies, knowledge institutions, companies, housing corporations and citizens. The European research project City-zen an Urban Energy Transition Methodology is developed to draw an Energy Master Plan for a city. The plan, a roadmap, exists of several (practical and local oriented) energy interventions and measures, both at the technical and strategic level which can be put on a timeline. In this City-zen approach the roadmap with urban energy measures for Amsterdam and Grenoble is made in helping achieving their ambitious climate goals. With concrete examples for local neighbourhoods it explains the different scenarios that are necessary to reach ambitious climate and energy targets.

Want to find out how your monumental building can become more sustainable? Check out the green menu of the Groene Grachten: http://beta.amsterdamsmartcity.nl/solutions/the-green-menu

Amsterdam Smart City joined De Groene Bocht with the principal aim of knowledge exchange, network sharing and, like all the other participating organisations, to contribute towards the further sustainability of De Groene Bocht. De Groene Bocht also took part in Amsterdam Smart City's Monumental Buildings Project. The purpose of the project was to find out which technologies and methodologies are practical when it comes to rendering monument buildings on the canals.
