Background & Policy context

The waterborne transport sector can further reduce its impact on the environment and contribute to sustainable solutions for shipping. In this context, the EU-funded POSEIDON project will build and demonstrate the applicability of three innovative fast-response energy storage systems (ESS) in waterborne transport (supercapacitors, flywheels and superconducting magnetic energy storage). Moreover, it will establish a refined metrics levelised cost of storage (LCOS) tool for cost assessment of ESS for different waterborne segments. Finally, POSEIDON will conduct a complete life cycle analysis of the three ESS, evaluate potential integration with other disruptive technologies, and determine safety issues and potential long-term risks proposing regulatory solutions.

Objectives

POSEIDON main objective is to demonstrate the applicability of 3 innovative fast-response ESS in waterborne transport (Supercapacitors, Flywheels and SMES) addressing their on-board integration, cost-competitiveness, efficiency, and safety, in relevant environments.

Methodology

To achieve it, the following specific objectives have been defined:
SO 1. To build and marinize 3 innovative ESS (SMES, Supercapacitors, and Flywheel)
SO 2. To demonstrate their operation in a maritime environment of a containerized system including the 3 developed ESS systems.
SO 3. To establish a refined metrics Levelized Cost of Storage (LCOS) tool for cost assessment and comparison of ESS for different waterborne segments.
SO 4. To elaborate a complete lifecycle analysis of the 3 developed ESS.
SO 5. To analyse potential integration with other disruptive technologies, such as hydrogen, rigid sails, and reversible hydrokinetic generators.
SO 6. To determine safety issues, potential long-term risks and to propose regulatory solutions for the 3 ESS.

To achieve SO1 and 2, POSEIDON will contribute with 3 Innovative Outputs (IO) that will demonstrate the potential applicability of Fast Response Energy Storage Systems (FRESS) in the maritime industry.
IO1. Marinized SMES based on CERN high-field superconducting magnets
IO2. Slow Flywheel for waterborne transport
IO3. Supercapacitor based ESS for marine applications 

SO3, 4, 5 and 6 are focused on the main barriers that must be overcome to achieve the penetration of alternative ESS in the maritime industry. To this purpose, POSEIDON will develop 3 innovative tools:
Tool1. a refined metrics Levelized Cost of Storage (LCOS) tool for ESS cost assessment and comparison. Applicability report of FRESS to different waterborne segments.
Tool2. LCC and LCA analysis of FRESS technologies applied to the waterborne segment.
Tool3. Disruptive technologies assessment: complementarity with hydrogen and solid sails
