The present report figures out how can cooperation serve every Research Infrastructure on one of their common technical issue: “Energy for isolated scientific stations”. It has been developed within the ENVRIplus project.
This report is composed of five stand-alone chapters:
Chapter A: A common knowledge on energy supplies for isolated stations
This chapter gives a quick overview of minimal useful knowledge on energy systems for isolated sites.
Chapter B: A catalog of operational isolated stations
Thanks to the ENVRI+ RIs community within oceanography, biology, atmosphere, geology fields, this chapter gives examples of operational stations, their energy and data transmission. Contacts are provided for more required details.
Chapter C: Energy production systems evaluations
Regarding RIs needs and following the ENVRI+ survey, evaluations of the most used power systems are presented.
Chapter D: Energy storage systems evaluations
Regarding RIs needs and following the ENVRI+ survey, evaluations of the most used power storage systems (lead acid batteries) have been made.
Chapter E: Technical summary
Finally, all previous information has been summarized in technical data sheets for the direct on-site use. The data sheets are gathered in chapter E: Technical summary, ready to be printed.
