“Smart net metering for promotion and cost-efficient grid integration of PV technology in Cyprus” (SmartPV)

Project Description (brief):

SmartPV Project which is co-financed by the EU through the LIFE+ Programme (Environment, Policy, and Governance) will thoroughly investigate pilot net metering schemes for cost-effective PV implementation and higher grid penetration in Cyprus of distributed generation with the target of achieving a WIN-WIN scenario for both consumers and energy utilities. Essentially, the project will put to the test, evaluate and disseminate a simple and timely concept (net metering) which should be more widely applied in Europe under appropriate, customized circumstances.

The project will aim to highlight and understand the impact of smart net metering implementation on consumer billing options, consumption sensitivities, consumer energy-related behaviours, and cost and benefit implications for network owners and operators (financial impact). For this purpose, energy consumption and production profiles of about 300 consumers-producers (prosumers) and 3000 “smart” consumers in Cyprus will be examined. The latter category will involve consumers without PV systems installed who will accept smart metering to take place in their households for investigating any behavioural changes in energy consumption caused by the presence of the informative and interactive smart meter.

Deloitte’s role:

Deloitte Grants & Incentives Unit participates as a Project Partner, with the overall responsibility of Actions C2 “Monitoring of the Project’s Socio-Economic Impact” and E2 “Networking and information platforms”. In addition, the cost-benefit analysis to be presented to stakeholders will be undertaken, within the scope of Action B3 “Data analysis and dynamic tariff model validation”. Finally, Deloitte supports the Consortium on the whole range of Project and Financial Management activities, as well as Communication & Dissemination.

 

Harmonising Open Data in the Mediterranean through better access and reuse of Public Sector Information (HOMER)

Project Description (brief):

HOMER is the strategic MED project that focuses on the theme of Open Data, a world-wide policy aiming at making available and exploitable Public Sector Information (PSI). The overall goal of HOMER is to contribute to unlock the full potential of the Public Sector Information in the Mediterranean space, by contributing to make the all area a competitive territory, able to match global competition and to ensure a sustainable growth and employment for the next generations. In line with the EU Digital Agenda, HOMER will facilitate the wider deployment of PSI in Spain, Italy, France, Malta, Greece, Slovenia, Cyprus and Montenegro, enabling their public governments to better address the legal, cultural and technological challenges linked to PSI policy. Starting from exposing five strategic sectors (Agriculture, Tourism, Environment, Energy and Culture), HOMER during its first phase will be able to open hundreds of public datasets, enhancing digital heritage transparency across the Mediterranean.

Deloitte’s role:

Deloitte Grants & Incentives Unit participates in the project as an external expert of the Sewerage Board of Limassol – Amathus (the Cypriot Partner), with the responsibility of implementing a series of activities including: Project and Financial Management, a Socio-Economic Impact Study (http://homerproject.eu/docs/Homer_Socioeconomic_Study_FV3.pdf), a Federated Open Data Portal (www.sbla-opendata.com.cy), Pilot Action B “Participation of citizens in the definition of Projects and Policies through the co-elaboration of new Solutions” (http://homerproject.eu/project/pilot-actions), and a Strategic Open Data Action Plan for the Cyprus.

 

“Active Generation 50 ” (AGE)

Project Description (brief):

This project deals with age management and strives for identification of tools and methods aimed at extending the activity period of people aged 50+. The project which focuses on both employed and unemployed people, is focused on the close cooperation between partner organizations from EU countries including Cyprus, Germany, Finland, Portugal, Spain and the Czech Republic in the field of needs, barriers, motivation and education of this group.  Project activities will also reach educational institutions and employers that will share good practices.

Deloitte’s role:

Deloitte Grants & Incentives Unit participates in AGE as a Project Partner, being a key expert in conducting research and analyses, with the responsibility of preparing a study on the topic of learning opportunities for adults over the age of 50 and learning tools available that can be transferred from one country to another.

 

“Promotion of PV energy through net metering optimization” (PV-NET)

Project Description (brief):

The project aims at developing a better energy policy for the promotion of RES in the Mediterranean area, targeting the best and most cost-efficient use of PV technology. The project focuses on optimizing smart energy management systems in order to create alternative, economical, sustainable measures in harmonizing and reassessing the existing Support Schemes including governmental subsidies or grants. Through the implementation of the project PV-NET, the net metering schemes will be optimized in each MED area involved, taking into account local conditions and strategies for energy pricing. Pilot PV net metering systems will be installed in Cyprus, Slovenia and Portugal on different types of buildings (residential, commercial, industrial, etc.). The aim is to study the energy policy of each region in order to develop the most optimum PV net metering model and to analyze the data generated by the pilot plants. Data on consumption and tariffs will be selected and therefore will be studied and compared. The data series that will be collected will be used to optimize the model, which will be applicable in each region. Thus, the pilots will be used to demonstrate and prove the benefits of PV net metering by validating different models.
