- Accelerate the development of innovative energy storage systems
A multidisciplinary approach will be adopted in order to accelerate the development of innovative energy storage systems to complement the use of batteries for zero-emission vessels.
- Develop a validation process
Validation process will benefit from existing demonstrator/simulation facilities:
- ETEF lab (University of Trieste): power HiL/full scale test demonstrator with a DC microgrid emulating with high-fidelity a shipboard power distribution networ
- ShIL lab (University of Genova): control HiL experiments.
- Validate the technology in a relevant environment (Technology readiness level - TRL 5)
The proposed technologies have been already validated at lab scale (TRL 3) in previous EU, national and international projects. We aim to bring them to TRL 5 by the end of the project.
The V-Access project will enhance the development of innovative energy storage systems in order to complement batteries for zero-emission vessels.
