eDREAM 2nd Webinar

Despite the advantages of the novel, innovative approaches for the collaborative use of the surplus electricity generation from RES between end-users under the same LV/MV substation, as well as the promising results of the successful deployment of Demand Side Response by some research and early demonstration projects that have produced key elements such as optimisation algorithms, trial deployments in individual or block of buildings, data collection on appliance use and consumer engagement, etc., there are very few examples of the successful deployment of DSR technologies that consider Virtual Power Plants as well as decentralised approaches, towards achieving a reduction in peak grid demand and actual savings for final consumers.

Although novel, innovative approaches toward the collaborative use of the surplus electricity generation from RES between users under the same LV/MV substation are arising with promising results coming from the successful deployment of Demand Side Response by some research and early-stage demonstration projects focused on key core elements such as optimisation algorithms, trial deployments in individual or block of buildings, data collection on appliance use and consumer engagement, etc., there are few examples of the successful deployment with business evidence on the exploitation of DSR technologies that integrate Virtual Power Plants adopting decentralised approaches, towards the achievement of peak grid demand reduction and consequently savings for the users.

Among such context, the webinar is oriented to explore novel business models to exploit the results of the eDREAM H2020 project, expected to demonstrate a closed-loop demand response framework designed to maintain the real-time balance of supply and demand in a decentralised environment.

Therefore, the webinar will introduce new demand response technologies and services developed within the eDREAM project and the associated innovative Business models to support the development of DR solutions.

DATE:

28th of May

TIME:

10:00 AM CEST

We would highly appreciate it if you could take two minutes of your time and fill in the questionnaire prepared to assess the applicability of the eDREAM context-specific business models in the foreseen EU countries.
