Jeremy Rifkin already said future energy regimes are based on locally produced and used energy.
We agree with him and we want te be an inspiring example of sustainable living, so we are going to build a Micro Smart Grid.
This means all buildings are connected en the produced energy is stored on site. When the sun starts to shine or wind starts to blow, all energy is stored locally, preferably in hydrogen or another renewable gas or liquid. This helps the energy grid which already has too much energy supply.
When we come home and the energy demand increases, all locally stored energy is used first. This helps the energy grid which has already too much demand at that time.
But the biggest advantage is that we can test all kinds of innovative energy production systems.
This will help the transition of our society to a sustainable energy system.
