How is this different to the ReportViewer component?

I'm not quite sure what this project is describing. Can't you just use the ASP.NET ReportViewer in local mode to render RDL reports without an SSRS server? I think I've misunderstood your project description.

Technically, you could.  But when you do, you must use *.rdlc reports, and not *.rdl reports.  My goal with this was to utilize SSRS Reports within a client application WITHOUT the need to setup SSRS on a box somewhere in the customer's infrastructure.  What I found was that deployments were a pain, and most of my customers don't have the demands of a fortune 100 company.
