Blockchain-Based Scalable and Tamper-Evident Solution for Registering Energy Data
An open issue that slows the adoption of blockchain technology in the energy sector is the low scalability and high processing overhead when dealing with the real-time energy data collected by smart energy meters. Thus, in this paper, we propose a scalable second tier solution which combines the…
Evaluating Forecasting Techniques for Integrating Household Energy Prosumers into Smart Grids
This paper tackles the problem of integrating household energy prosumers in Smart Energy Grids by analyzing a set of state-of-the-art energy forecasting techniques that allow individual or aggregated prosumers to evaluate their future energy demand and inform the DSO about potential grid imbalances.
Enabling New Tehnologies for Demand Response Descentralized Validation using Blockchain
In this paper we will present a robust, democratic and scalable demand response framework which will feature a blockchain based near-real time closed-loop DR validation, fully autonomous, secured and decentralized. This will enact each prosumer with the possibility to verify the authenticity and integrity of all DR events and bid notifications.
Blockchain Based Decentralized Management of Demand Response Programs in Smart Energy Grids
In this paper, we investigate the use of decentralized blockchain mechanisms for delivering transparent, secure, reliable, and timely energy flexibility, under the form of adaptation of energy demand profiles of Distributed Energy Prosumers, to all the stakeholders involved in the flexibility markets (Distribution System Operators primarily, retailers, aggregators, etc.)
Decentralized blockchain flexibility system for Smart Grids Requirements engineering and use cases
In this paper, we present results from the ongoing project eDREAM (enabling new Demand REsponse Advanced, Market oriented and Secure technologies, solutions and business models) with some extent on requirements and use cases related a decentralized flexibility system based on ledger technologies.
