RED WoLF Hybrid Energy Storage System

28 Jun 2023
Industry Systems Hub

The RED WoLF Project aims to increase the use of renewables and is already reducing CO2 emissions for electrically heated homes.

Leeds Beckett University is leading the project in collaboration with 15 partner institutions from the UK, France, Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Luxembourg. We are testing an Al-driven Hybrid Storage System combining batteries with cheaper thermal storage to create a cost-effective residential storage solution. This system shifts households‘ energy demand from peak to off-peak times. A number of benefits will ensue if this solution is widely adopted. Inefficient load-following power plants will be displaced. Renewable energy curtailment will be reduced by providing houses with the greenest, cheapest electricity.
