Smart-Up is an EU funded project that will encourage vulnerable customers in those Member States that have embarked on the roll-out of Smart Meters to actively use their Smart Meters and In-House Displays to achieve energy savings.
Previous studies have shown that Smart Meters do not lead to energy savings in the residential sector unless households actively use them and modify their energy-use behaviour. This project will fill the gap, as well as raise awareness on demand response services.

Demand response programmes which encourage consumers to change the way they use electricity or to reduce their total energy use can help keep energy bills low and help integrate renewables into our existing energy networks.
Peak electricity demand can be reduced by:

Beyond Energy Efficiency: A Guide to Advanced Demand-Side Management Applications
How can energy services companies (ESCOs) get in on the demand response action? Their first step is to become demand-side management (DSM) enabled beyond energy efficiency.
Not only do Demand-Side Management applications contribute to environmental sustainability objectives, but they can also offer unprecedented opportunities for the buildings sector to reap multiple economic benefits beyond energy efficiency.

Demand response (DR) offers the path for consumers to change their normal energy consumption patterns in response to significant variations in energy pricing over time. An effective and wide scale implementation of DR may lead to lower energy demand during peak hours and minimize energy associated costs and outages. DR can be more cost-effective than adding generation capabilities to meet the peak or occasional demand spikes. The underlying objective for an effective wide implementation of DR is to actively engage users in modifying their consumption.

Add Value with Advanced Demand-Side Management
Demand Side Management (DSM) is evolving fast.
Abundant new techniques and technologies are now available for application in buildings: HVAC optimisation, integrating on-site renewables, especially solar generation... and of course, huge leaps forward in Demand Response (DR).
In the upcoming free online session on 30 May, DEXMA R&D Director Miguel Cruz will discuss:
