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.

Structure of the document: 

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.
