Positive impact

Complete energy autonomy, generated purely from clean, renewable sources.

  • Developed by

Mar de Fulles is a brand new ecotourism concept, which describes itself as a Sustainable Eco-Management Network, consisting of a bioclimatic touristic complex located next to the nature park of Sierra de Espadán (Castelló, Spain) and a wild bird special protection area managed by Natura 2000. This pioneering and innovative project brings together ecology, sustainability and energy efficiency at a level never before seen in Spain. The construction of the complex respects in it entirety the forestal territory and follows the strictest criteria for environmental integration. 

The Mar de Fulles complex will support all its electricity requirements through photovoltaic panels with support batteries. This is precisely the part for which Mar de Fulles is seeking finance through the crowd: The purchase and installation of solar panels and support batteries, in order to have complete energy autonomy, generated purely from clean, renewable sources.

Investing in this project is also open to non-spanish residents.  

As it is a fully isolated solar energy grid, it is not affected by the spanish "tax over the sun".

Technical characteristics of the project:

- Type of installation: off-grid photovoltaic panels fixed on rooftop
- Power generation: 41.480 W (136 modules)
- Power output: 46,000 W (5 inverters)
- Accumulation: 12.340 AH/C100 - 48V (592 KWH) with 82 batteries
- Installer: HELIOTEC 2006 SL

The total budget for the installation until its commissioning is €280.000. The guarantee against the ECrowd! loan is the entire installation, covering the electricity generation, accumulation and management.


The installation has already been validated and has received a subvention from IVACE of the region of Valencia.  


Besides its positive environmental impact, the investment will generate significant savings:
- It will save immediately about €150.000 which would be required to connect Mar de Fulles to the existing electricity grid;
- Furthermore, Mar de Fulles will save the ongoing cost of energy consumption for the eco-touristic complex.
- It is estimated that the investment will fully pay back in 7 years.

The construction work of the complex itself is being financed through a mortgage from Fiare Banca Ética and Caixa Rural Sant Vicent Ferrer de La Vall d'Uixó, Coop. de Crèdit Valenciana.

 

Additional reward for ECrowd! investors offered by "Mar de Fulles":

"Mar de Fulles" offers a discount to Ecrowd! investors to have better conditions in their first stay in the ecotourism resort which have assisted in funding.

This offer is a 10% discount on the rate in effect on the price of accommodation (excluding meals) in hotel or hostel. The discount will benefit the investors who have lend a minimum of €1,000 to the project, admitted until the end of 2017.

 

Will you come to see how the "Mar de Fulles" project progresses?

On Sunday 17 April 2016, from 12 to 14 hours, will be a free guided tour to the facilities of solar energy Mar de Fulles in Alfondeguilla (Castellón). There is nothing like seeing it by yourself and commenting to its project managers.

The Mar de Fulles complex is due to open in june 2016 and will offer the following facilities to its patrons:

  • Hotel with 10 times 30m2 rooms, each with 20 m2 of terrace
  • Lodge with 5 rooms of 8 beds each, with terrace
  • Panoramic swimming pool
  • 2000m2 private garden in front of the terraces
  • 35 picnic spaces in the forest
  • Parking 
  • Multi-function rooms
  • Reception with touristic guidance and advice
  • Interior dining room with capacity for 150 diners
  • Panoramic kitchen
  • External dining room with capacity for at least 150 diners
  • Organic vegetable garden for the supply of the restaurant

 

Description of the technology used for the installation of the solar panels financed through this operation:

Photovoltaic panels:

Panels or photovoltaic modules consist of a set of photovoltaic cells that produce electricity from light (electromagnetic radiation) that shines on them, through the photoelectric effect.

For this project, the model ATERSA A305 P has been chosen .

Inverters:

The inverter transforms the direct current from photovoltaic panels into alternating current for use in the installation.

In this project, 3 models of different capacity are being used in order to optimize the installation.

3 INVERTERS OUTBACK VFXR 3,000 VA. 
1 INVERTER SERIES OUTBACK RADIAN GS7048E 7,000 VA.
1 3-phase inverter INGETEAM INGECON SUN 30 30 KW. 

Batteries:

They allow to harness the power of the photovoltaic modules by accumulating and  supplying power as and when needed. They are electrochemical systems based on reversible chemical reactions taking place inside the battery. In off grid installations it is necessary to store the energy captured during the hours of sunshine in order to cover supply when there is no or insufficient solar radiation.
The batteries or accumulators play a fundamental role in the long term sustainability of a photovoltaic installation.
For the Mar de Fulles installation, two types of batteries are being used:

12 batteries series 5000 4KS27P ROLLS (2062 AH / C100)
70 batteries series 5000 2YS31P ROLLS (2 x 3426 AH / C100)

Me gustaría entender cómo se dimensionó la potencia eléctrica necesaria, y si habrá otras fuentes de energía (gas/ biomasa?).

Instalación fotovoltaica de autoconsumo para complejo ecoturístico
Juanma Urbán 01/09/2017

En la planificación energética de Mar de Fulles comenzamos con la reducción de todos los consumos que no fueran imprescindibles (minibares, televisores, inducción…), en el  segundo paso buscamos la máxima eficiencia en los equipamientos eléctricos (iluminación por led, VRV, agua caliente…) y en el  tercer paso analizamos la necesidades de la construcción piloto que ya teníamos construida.
 
Nuestra conclusión fue que gracias a:

  • La buena orientación.
  • El buen uso de la cubierta (sombras)
  • La calidad de la construcción.
  • La ventilación cruzada de las estancias.
  • La gran influencia solar.
  • La alta calidad de los exteriores.
  • El uso concretado en días de las instalaciones (fines de semana, puentes…).

Necesitábamos una instalación con una buena capacidad de almacenamiento para almacenar en los días de baja ocupación, para utilizar esa energía en los días de ocupaciones más altas.
Como margen en caso de error en el cálculo tenemos el 50% de la cubierta disponible para ampliar en caso de necesidad.
 
La segunda parte de la pregunta es más sencilla, la cocina requiere de gas propano y aprovechando que teníamos esta fuente energética en el proyecto tenemos un grupo que en caso de necesidad puede completar las necesidades energéticas. Tenemos previsto analizar el consumo tras un año de actividad para valorar si interesa ampliar la instalación, añadir la biomasa o mantener el grupo de gas siempre y cuando su uso sea ocasional tal y como está previsto.

Al ver las fotos, y por haber visto unos centros ecoturísticos muy feos y poco acogedores, me gustaría saber más sobre integración paisajística y el acabado.
 

Instalación fotovoltaica de autoconsumo para complejo ecoturístico
Juanma Urbán 01/09/2017

Nosotros opinamos igual, y por ese motivo hemos hecho un gran esfuerzo en los acabados interiores de la construcción. Ahora que tenemos completamente acabada la vivienda piloto, podemos garantizar que los interiores están a la altura de los exteriores.


Diseño Mar de Fulles

 
La integración paisajística ha sido otro de los retos y podemos garantizar que a 30 metros del edificio el cliente dejará de verlo. Ésta fue otra de las razones por las que hicimos la vivienda piloto y poder comprobar el grado de integración.

Se habla de huerta ecológica. ¿Quién se encargará de ésto y cuál es el grado de auto-aprovechamiento previsto?

Instalación fotovoltaica de autoconsumo para complejo ecoturístico
Juanma Urbán 01/09/2017

La huerta la gestionamos nosotros mismos, la tuvimos en producción 2-3 años para valorar la producción, calidad del producto y el trabajo que conlleva su gestión.

Cono-Sud y CERAI son dos ONGs socias del proyecto que ayudaran en su gestión. Les hemos cedido el uso de manera gratuita para la realización de cursos de agricultura ecológica.

Tenemos previsto autoabastecernos del 80% de las necesidades de verduras, en cambio la fruta la llevamos con más retraso e inicialmente será comprado con criterios de Km0 de la red Slow Food.

Miguel Angel08/03/2016

Me gustaría saber si para las necesidades energéticas de la casa, esta se ha diseñado con algún estándar, que luego permita su certificación, tipo Passivhaus, etc.

Muchas gracias.

Instalación fotovoltaica de autoconsumo para complejo ecoturístico
Juanma Urbán 01/09/2017

La construcción no se ha diseñado para obtener ningún certificado en concreto, pese a que con toda seguridad cumpliremos con varios.

El próximo año presentaremos un proyecto Life para certificarnos como CO20 y valoraremos de todos los sellos de calidad existentes cual es el que mejor nos define.

Cuando iniciamos el proyecto constructivo y escogimos a Xavi (arquitecto) comenzamos por definir qué era ecológico desde nuestro punto de vista y qué lo era menos o no lo era.

Para nosotros un vino ecológico de Chile no es un vino ecológico, es un vino de agricultura ecológica que al consumirlo aquí deja de ser ecológico…

Por ese motivo adoptamos el concepto de km0 para toda la construcción:

  • Buscamos la proximidad.
  • Que sea lo más ecológico posible.
  • Que sea sencillo y de un precio moderado (no queremos transmitir que la ecología es cara).
  • Evitamos las grandes compañías y tratamos de buscar la compra más directa posible.

Sinceramente no conocía hasta hoy la certificación Passivhaus y leyendo las características a falta de consultarlo con Xavi considero que las cumplimos íntegramente.

Agradezco la pregunta y estudiaremos si escogemos esta certificación.

¿Cómo afecta el "impuesto al sol" a la instalación solar de "Mar de Fulles"? 

Instalación fotovoltaica de autoconsumo para complejo ecoturístico
Juanma Urbán 01/09/2017

Gracias a que optamos por una instalación completamente aislada, estamos al margen de los continuos cambios de legislación, por lo que no nos afecta.

Company philosophy:
We’re building the business from the point of view of the client and not purely from an economic point of view, as long as client requirements do not prejudice the environment.
The process by which we build the business is just as important as the final result.
We work with suppliers as collaborators who truly understand the purpose of the project rather than just providing a specific product for a specific price.
We want our work to be fully transparent, so that it can serve as example for other future entrepreneurs.
The real hero is always the environment over and above the constructions.
