HOLISDER brings together a wide range of mature technologies and integrates them in an open and interoperable framework, comprising in a fully-fledged suite of tools addressing the needs of the whole demand response value chain.
In this way it will ensure consumer empowerment and transformation into active market players, through the deployment of a variety of implicit and hybrid demand response schemes, supported by a variety of end-user applications for Personalized Informative Billing, Human-Centric Energy Management, Load Scheduling and Intelligent Controls, Self-consumption promotion and cost-effective storage, Predictive Maintenance, along with Context-Aware Automation.
Objectives and Methodology
The HOLISDER objectives can be summarised around 7 main pillars, which can be further divided into two main categories, namely: technical objectives focusing on the delivery of the HOLISDER system and services, which will be used as the basis for business exploitation and commercialisation through a business plan, and business, Exploitation and Knowledge transfer objectives that focus on the evaluation and validation of the solution, the spread of the excellence gained and its entrance into the market.
1 –Introduce residential and tertiary energy consumers as active players in energy markets and ensure significant benefits through their engagement in implicit human-centric demand response programmes.
2 – Enable intelligence enhancement of currently available BEMS and Smart Home Systems with the integration of ICT-enabled human-centric DR optimization and predictive maintenance functions.
3 – Deliver an open standards-based modular solution that ensures end-to-end interoperability between smart grids, EMS and smart home devices and holds a high replication potential around EU MS.
4 – Safeguard grid reliability and the transition to a more fossil-free energy future through complementary explicit demand response strategies on the basis of aggregated flexibility utilization.
5 – Tackle major market entry barriers for consumers with the introduction of suitable business models for energy utilities, aggregators and facility managers.
6 – Validate the resulting solutions in real-life environments and ensure enhanced consumer engagement in Demand Response.
7 – Promote the adoption of the HOLISDER solution as a next-generation demand response optimization framework through intense dissemination and knowledge transfer of the project’s outcomes towards the targeted stakeholders, reaching out to international audiences within and beyond the EU.
