A rooftop hybrid system placed on the roof of the Planet gymnasium in Carros

On 14 December 2018, the City Council of Carros, in partnership with GRDF, installed a rooftop hybrid system on the roof of the Planet gymnasium, in an impressive operation enabling the Nice Smart Valley project to experiment hybrid flexibility, one of its three use cases.

The Carros sports facility is now equipped with a very specific system which operates both on electric power and gas power, and provides heating in winter and cooling in summer.

The objective of this rooftop system for the Nice Smart Valley project?

To relieve the electricity grid without any constraint for the gymnasium users. This is 85 kW of additional flexibility on which the Nice Smart Valley project can count thanks to the complementarity of the gas/electricity networks!
