LIGHTING CONTROL Assumptions 1. LIGHTING = 10/21 % OF ELECTRICAL LOAD = 47% = 15.2kWh/m 2 p.a.

LIGHTING CONTROL Energy Saving= 5.33 kWh/m 2 p.a. 1. www.advancebuildings.org Occupancy sensors can reduce lighting load by 30-40% 1 This can rise to 75% if integrate with PSALI 1 Therefore we can assume that we could obtain at least 35% reduction. 35% X 15.2kWh/m 2 = 5.33kWh/m 2

ENERGY STORAGE

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

Demand Shifting

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

Any Questions ?
