Back-end system2
The deployment of Demand Response in private households poses complex issues in terms of fulfilling both restrictions of the grid and flexibility constraints of the households. Researchers at Fraunhofer IWES have developed stochastic optimizations based on probabilistic forecasts, which consider these restrictions. This innovative optimization approach is implemented in the virtual power plant […]

Hardware
The large scope of Smart Grids poses the risk of too many developers and standardization bodies causing non-interoperability between devices and applications. Therefore, it is vital for the deployment of Smart Grid services in households to bring together as many services as possible. To ensure this requirement in SEMIAH, Develco […]

Opportunities for balancing the grid through shifts of energy consumption from high energy-consuming loads to off-peak periods are not only a focus of the industry anymore. The recruitment of private households to participate in SEMIAH's Norwegian pilot reveals a growing interest in Demand Response among the residents.   Turning energy consumption upside […]
