Grid Flexibility and Demand Response (incl. energy management, multifactor authentication and artificial intelligence)
Smart buildings are capable of adjusting their energy usage based on the price and availability of renewable energy in the grid.
Balancing the demand and supply of energy has previously been carried out entirely on the supply side. Utility companies increased or decreased their production based on changes in demand. However, the rise of renewables leads to more volatility on the supply side, which needs to be responded to on the demand side. We need smart grids that allow flexible real-time production and use, energy efficiency and resiliency. Smart buildings are capable of adjusting their energy consumption and storing energy. The building management system communicates with the grid and controls the building technology accordingly – shutting down certain operations to save energy or storing energy in batteries when supply is plentiful as an example. To optimise their impact, these decisions will be automatically made by AI.
Our experts will help you calculate the flexibility potential of technical systems so that the solutions do not adversely affect indoor conditions. In addition, in order to achieve optimal performance, it is important that forecasts and analytical models are regularly reviewed. This guarantees the maximum benefit of demand response.
