The general idea of this thesis can be concluded as Smart SME Cluster Organization for Collaborative Energy Management. CEnergyC addresses the need of European industrial SMEs to transform their business models by integrating key issues of the energy management transition. CEnergyC specifically addresses these challenges for SMEs located in isolated areas, with the ambition to integrate REn as a key driver of sustainability. The project builds energy management solutions dedicated to SMEs, and ensure the best possible balance between locally produced REn and residual purchase of energy from large distributors. CEnergyC develops a new concept of energy efficient SME Cluster, based on collaborative management principles. Technically the Cooperative Energy Cluster (CE-Cluster) is implemented with an innovative Cyber-Physical-System (CPS) approach where innovative ICT solutions support a decentralized and collaborative management of energy flows for cooperative clusters of local actors, including industrial firms. The energy management system includes a mix of energy sources, oriented on renewables. Three main objectives are developed: Objective 1: to design and prototype the CE-Cluster, by a Collaboration Framework gathering all the required components to support its deployment. Objective 2: to assess its efficiency and validate the added-value of the associated Business Model by Validation Demonstrators in 2 countries. Objective 3: to support a broad replication of the CE-Clusters across Europe, via a Replication Strategy and toolkit, implemented by 3 Replication Demonstrators. Proving the market replicability of the new business model is essential. It will be proved during the project with two main international orientations: Eastern Europe & India. CEnergyC will build an efficient strategy together with deployment toolkits to support the European then International replication of CE-Clusters, then to prove the replicability by a set of Replication Demonstrators in Eastern Europe also reinforced by a collaboration with India to launch additional replication initiatives. Based on the idea of sustainable and internal automatically running community. We first consider the locations to be chosen, here we mainly consider the areas which are isolated and with a good natural geographical condition to construct some kinds of power stations, and then we need to figure out how to build a proper energy flow network. In this thesis we introduce the main elements of this system and present several ideal proposals in China. China has been through revolutionary development in the recent 20 years. And the whole world is witnessing and being influenced of that. However, practically speaking, the development in China is very uneven. Majority of the population is concentrated in the big cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Canton, Shenzhen etc. Instead, Many countryside areas have been losing their population because of the lack of job opportunities for local residents and the unsatisfactory social and living environment. The three projects in this thesis aim to solve the above problem in the isolated areas in China, by choosing three typical places with different and various conditions to set some ideal examples for other similar areas. It has a great prospective in the future by doing so. To release the high population and living pressure in the big cities, as well as to help with the protection of ancient cities and towns.
