2LIPP – 2nd Life for Power Plants
January 2023 – June 2026
Funded by the EU Horizon 2020 program for climate innovation, the 2LiPP project aims at demonstrating a scalable hybrid storage system designed to support combined heat and power (CHP) plants in their transition from fossil-based operations to key providers of grid stability and security of supply in a renewable grid.
2LiPP will provide valuable insights on possible repurposing pathways for CHP plants in Europe and around the world.
The project will demonstrate how a combination of three energy storage technologies with different storage capacities and dispatch capabilities can be operated in parallel to offer a wide range of grid services:
- Flywheel, provided by QuinteQ Energy
- Recycled lithium-ion batteries, provided by PLS Energy Systems
- Molten salt storage, provided by Hyme
A new type of energy management system will be developed by Pini Solutions to operate and dispatch the storage units optimally.
The solution will mean that one can avoid losing obsolete fossil fuel assets worth billions in Europe alone by updating them instead. It will reduce the time and costs of implementing renewable energy storage and will speed up the green transition.
The 16 project partners from 6 countries are:
- Energy Cluster Denmark
- Bornholms Energi og Forsyning A/S (BEOF)
- Hyme Energy
- Danish Technological Institute
- Technical University of Denmark
- Gdańsk University of Technology
- Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Ciepłowniczo-Komunalne”Koksik” -Spółka Z Ograniczoną Odpowiedzioneścią
- Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung
- Netzgesellschaft Eisenberg
- Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena
- VBGE (DE)
- Pomorskie Region (PL)
