Demand flexibility for supporting the grid in normal and emergency operation - an end-user focused approach.

Type
Residential & non-residential, with tertiary buildings and apartments.
Objectives

  • Implementation and demonstration of energy ontology for interoperability between smart grids actors (retailers, aggregators, DSO and end-users);
  • Validation of IoT architecture and its possible interaction with smart metering infrastructure;
  • Business cases demonstrating the economic and social needs to have end users’ contribution to DSF. Explore new multi-energy services (e.g. electricity, heat, water).


Unique features

  • Covers the whole chain, from the DSO grid monitoring, to the end-user’s appliances, considering local energy communities and microgrid;
  • Includes social studies and living labs to test the end-user’s participation in flexibility services and its enabling technologies;
  • H2020 Interflex flexibility platform, allowing residential cons. participation through a plug-and-play interoperable solutions.


Available technologies and infrastructure

  • 250 households, 20 tertiary/commercial buildings, 1 school;
  • ENEDIS flexibility platform, that allows the DSO to link the forecasted grid voltage profiles with an aggregator flexibility offer.


New technologies

  • Smart appliances will be installed in some selected households, together with HEMS, PV and storage;
  • B2C flexibility solutions at local level;
  • Interoperability implementation for flexibility platform for DSO and aggregators’ solutions;
  • Smart Charging solutions for fleet and individual EV.
