FLYWHEEL A rotor is accelerated, maintaining the energy in the system as inertial energy Maximum Power rating of 2000KW for a multi-cabinet type Maximum Power rating of 500KW for a single-cabinet type Stored energy discharges at a maximum time of 2 minutes
FLYWHEEL- FEASIBILTY ADVANTAGES –Flexible –Commercially available –High power outputs DISADVANTAGES –Safety concerns –Short discharge times –Expensive
HYDROGEN STORAGE The 3 key elements are Electrolysis Mechanism Hydrogen Storage Fuel Cell Hydrogen stored via Pressurised storage Ammonia Metal hydrides
FEASIBILITY High storage capacity- around 165 KWh /m 3 Only pressurised hydrogen storage is currently available for building use Other storage only commercially available for vehicles Expensive
THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE TWO TYPES Sensible –A Tank underground, used for heat storage (25kWh/m^3) Latent –Higher energy density (around 100kWh/m^3) –Phase change materials (PCM) used where it solidifies during night then melts during the day
Purpose of Demand Shifting Demand shifting makes use of storage so that peaks and troughs of demand are levelled off Requires intelligent forward thinking Can be remotely managed system and use predictions to help shift loads
What's to be gained Throttling a CHP system is not required Constant power generation can be attained, decrease maintenance problems Can help incorporate renewable systems
DEMAND SHIFTING FOR RENEWABLES Demand shifting can be used to create demand when it suits a renewable supply. For Example- Solar works when there are higher levels of solar intensity- i.e. in the summer/midday.

SHOULD WE DECOUPLE ? FORAgainst Seen as a flagship project towards decentralised supply Why decouple when we could have the grid as a backup Encourage the use of renewable systems It’s a city centre location any excess electricity could be sold Know where our energy comes from Grid Supply could be used to meet demand peaks Attract more grant money and better staff Auxiliary backup system could over complicate design
VISION What is going to be different about our School ? –A ‘HYDROGEN’ school –A DECOUPLED school A NEW approach to school design
