KEME is developing several projects with others in the pipeline that result in
an analysis of the applicability of its services to various sectors of activity.
These projects are described below.
This project aims to acquire equipment and services for a sensing system to be installed in two of the main streets of the city of Alenquer to adapt the luminosity levels of the intelligent public lighting system.
The project comprises the installation of light and motion sensors, and their integration with the real-time management system in several public luminaires.
The final client of this project is the Municipality of Alenquer.
Cogeneration Hotel Lux Lisbon
The solution presented consists of implementing two CHPs of 20 kW each, to increase the hotel's heat production and generate electricity at a lower price than that of the public grid operator. The proposed energy sales contract
offers a 30% discount compared to the current tariff, for all electricity produced by the CHP System. The project started in the last quarter of 2020 and is in the negotiation phase with suppliers and for presentation
system installation schedule.
Renewable Energy Communities: Pilot Projects
Given the recent nature of the legislation dedicated to the creation of Renewable Energy Communities (CER), KEME Energy is developing pilot projects of its energy services related to this theme. This process began with the review of the application of the licensing processes which, together with the team's experience in this type of business models, namely in the United Kingdom, has allowed the establishment of an internal quality process for the implementation of this new service in Portugal. The integration of hardware and software necessary for the development of CERs has been carried out by KEME using pilot projects, since in Portugal there is still no history of application of the concept. In this sense, KEME is developing three pilot projects in the start-up phase with the aim of investigating the issues of integration of the various hardware components such as solar panels, converters and batteries, as well as their management, through the adjustment of software programs. on the market in each case.
The development of the intelligent digital integrated management system will be carried out through algorithms based on artificial intelligence (AI) that together with IOT (Internet of Things) sensors will identify consumption patterns that are later used in the management of the production, storage and sharing system. of energy in the community, articulating them with the use of energy from the
public distribution network, when necessary.
PORTS Vehicle 2 Grid
This project is part of the transformation of the logistics-port sector in order to adapt it to the 4.0 economy. In addition to Energy Keme, the PORTS V2G project has as partners the Spanish company KANDARA – Circular Economy. This project aims to develop a reliable system according to the Vehicle to Grid (V2G) concept, which consists of the integration of different sources of electrical energy storage located in various types of electric vehicles and vessels of various types in order to manage the energy needed. operations in Porto, combining it whenever possible with renewable energy sources. The pilot project aims to develop an innovative and disruptive management system that integrates and intelligently manages the level of charging and energy available in the batteries, taking into account the energy needs of port activities.
CER Sines & Export: production of green hydrogen for CER in Sines
Implement a process for the production of green hydrogen by photoelectrochemical electrolysis, compression, storage in PED bottles and subsequent use for the production of electricity to be consumed in a CER and for the supply of hydrogen-powered heavy transport. The hydrogen production plant will have a total capacity of around 1.5 MW, with an estimated annual hydrogen production of 146 tonnes. Taking into account this value of green hydrogen production and the nature of a “pilot project” that this operation represents, which may result in its replication in other locations nationwide, this project will make a very important contribution.
significant to the envisaged national targets.
ENPESCA Project - Energy Efficiency in PESCA
This project aims to study in detail the energy consumption on board fishing vessels in order to identify consumption patterns and investigate which solutions can be implemented in order to reduce costs for their owners and at the same time contribute to the reduction of emissions to on board, contributing to make the fishing activity more sustainable.
Decarbonization of geographic islands project
Geographic islands share characteristics of limited land space, isolated power grids and few natural resources that imply an availability
highly dependent on imported oil, with high costs for the population and the environment. As the costs of wind and solar energy fall, many governments have set targets to increase renewable production, trying to alleviate the challenges of its intermittence through the introduction of wave and tidal technology, these resources are more predictable in terms of potential energy to be generated. Ocean energy can play an important role when it comes to accessing green hydrogen production or drinking water through desalination. This project arises in this context in order to investigate viable business models involving synergies between related markets by coupling photovoltaic energy, green hydrogen and offshore energy to reduce energy dependence and energy costs, as well as increase the efficiency of the electricity grid.
EcoSolar Project – Environmental management of the Cercal photovoltaic park
The EcoSolar project aims to contribute to minimizing the environmental impacts of the photovoltaic park, promoting the involvement of local communities, valuing biodiversity and ecosystem services, promoting a multifunctional use of the land, harmonizing the characteristics of photovoltaic systems and the ecological and social needs in the context of the landscape,
in order to build a green infrastructure that promotes the production of priority ecosystem services, support local economic activities and encourage environmental education.
The strategy of this project involves articulating the minimization measures already foreseen for the Central with the
implementation of measures to enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services and education/awareness actions, to create an integrated action that promotes the enhancement of natural capital and the rural economy.
Invest, promote, develop and implement projects with sustainable management models linked to technological innovation in renewable energy production
The initial team of KEME is made up of technicians with more than 15 years of experience, specialized in project development and design of renewable energy power plants, energy efficiency, EPC and O&M.
