Simulation Supported Real Time Energy Management in Building Blocks
Sim4Blocks is a four-year, EC-funded project that focuses on the development of innovative demand response (DR) services for residential and commercial applications. The project combines decentralised energy management technology at the blocks-of-buildings-scale to enable DR.
The DR systems and services will be tested in three pilot sites in Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and tested together with interfaces for intuitive user interaction. Successful models will be transferred to the customers of project partners in further European countries (Belgium, France, UK).
The pilot sites are blocks of highly energy-efficient buildings with diverse energy systems and, most importantly, the infrastructure necessary for testing DR strategies.
Project duration: From April 2016 to March 2020.
