Project Date: 2020-2024
Location: Oinousses, Greece
The MUSICA project is developing a replicable smart Multi-usage of Space (MUS) platform for the concurrent use of three types of renewable energy – wind, PV and wave – at small islands.
This will offer a one-stop decarbonisation facility for the islands, and includes a small-scale demonstration of the FLASC Hydro-Pneumatic Energy Storage system.
The Energy Conversion Unit (ECU) is deployed on the platform as a containerized module, and the Pressure Containment System (PCS) is integrated within the floater. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 862252.
