Type
Residential & geographically widespread tertiary buildings

Objectives

The Portuguese pilot will allow two types of consumers – residential and commercial – to access solutions that will connect them to the energy of the future.


The residential demo will accomplish the following goals:

  • Exploit different energy services (P2P, flexibility management, etc.) for households, buildings, and energy communities.
  • Exploit interoperable digital platforms for energy and non-energy services based on cloud and hybrid connectivity solutions.
  • Validate and flexibility platforms and the data exchange interfaces within the DSO (Distribution System Operator) infrastructure and demonstrate the compliance with CIM standards and potential for wide adoption at the EU level.


The commercial demo will take advantage of the interoperable framework developed within the project to:

  • Develop an integrated Energy Management System (iEMS) for retail stores.
  • Explore the provision of Energy Management services through the iEMS.
  • Demonstrate flexibility aggregation for DSF (Demand Side Flexibility) to DSO.
  • Demonstrate that convenient Electric Vehicles (EV) charging in private areas can impactfully promote e-mobility.


Infrastructure

The residential demo will be deployed in 250 households in 5 sites, across the country. The commercial demo will be developed and installed in 12 retail stores spread along the Portuguese territory, where: ~75% will have local RES, ~75% will have local e-mobility and ~50% will have both local RES and e-mobility.


Technologies

The following technologies will be part of the Portuguese demo:

  • BMS – Building management system: System that integrates subsystems / devices available within a store.
  • iEMS: System that integrates the BMS systems of different stores.
  • Interoperability layer: Set of semantic adapters that enables different systems to communicate with each other.
  • EV chargers: Hardware necessary to charge EV’s.
  • Technical platforms: Set of technical platforms from various actors (e-mobility manager, retailer, flexibility aggregator, store manager, etc.) that will communicate through the interoperability layer enabling the deployment of new services and solutions.
