This document constitutes D7.3 of SHIP2FAIR project and represents the final release of the SHIP2FAIR Replication Tool, which has been designed to incorporate solar potential data and assess various “solar scenarios” tailored to the specific needs of the industrial site under analysis. The tool allows comprehensive simulations of energy supply and demand, considering irreversibility and exergy aspects and applying its features it calculated Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) useful to evaluate the energy, economic, and environmental benefits associated with the analyzed technologies.

Specifically, the document covers the two main sub-objectives of the related Task, i.e. the Design and implementation of the back-end and of the front-end module for the Replication Tool.

As concerns the back-end module, it is formed of several components including the SHIP2FAIR database (storing input/output data and other relevant information for the execution of the Replication Tool), a message bus that enables asynchronous communication between different modules and an authentication module ensuring secure access. Moreover, a data ingestion module handles the intake of data, and an extraction, transformation, and loading module manages these operations for smooth module execution. To conclude, an API Gateway module facilitates the transfer of data between internal and external back-end modules, if needed.

The front-end is constituted by several modules including the Solar Mapping Module, Industrial Process Demand Characterization Module, Simulation Module, and Solar Integration Module, which have been implemented and seamlessly integrated into a user-friendly software solution. These modules have been developed in accordance with the wireframes designed, ensuring an intuitive and efficient user interface.
