Objective

Deliverables

  • Pilot Sites Specification Report

    This report describes the commonalities and idiosyncrasies of the different test sites. Reference to both type of appliances, technical infrastructure (AMS, control equipment, etc.) and local grid topology will be made. Focus on local production, existing demand-response programs, new loads will be addressed. This will be fed into task T7.2 A thorough analysis of geographical, demographical and sociographical aspects will be made in order to characterize the end-user group. The report will also treat business aspects related to retail pricing, tariffs, consumption levels, load profiles, services available and other things that represent standards of local day-to-day operations prior to EMPOWER deployment.

  • Communications Test Report

    The Test Report will contain a documentation of the results from the tests of the API functions.

  • Feasibility Report

    This report describes the results of the feasibility analysis and the field devices integration work.

  • Dissemination Plan

    The Dissemination plan must show, in detail, the activities to be performed along the life of the project; stakeholders to be addressed, related activities, activities schedule, KPIs and resources, identifying the summits and events linked to each stakeholder profile, and establishing how and when to participate. The plan will be reviewed at M18.

  • Trading concept development

    This report will define the final trading concept to be implemented. The report will describe the full market and the associated trading mechanisms. This will be presented in business oriented terms and use economically parametric to describe and evaluate the models included. It will also constitute a basis for the work producing D6.4.

  • Technical specifications for software development

    These specifications constitute the technical basis for implementation of the market and trading concept developed in the project and all the interfaces capturing the communication between the management/trading level and the parts that optimize use of resources and control the physical flow of communication, energy and money.

  • Timing-based business models

    Timing-based business models will provide a new type of model for providing flexibility to the grid.

  • Communications Specification Plan

    This plan will contain a description of the quality of service and the communication use cases that will be needed by the BPL.

  • Functional and technical documentation of relevant API-functions

    This will contain the complete functional and technical documentation of the API functions.

  • Prosumer oriented trade

    This report presents the results of “T6.2 Exploration of theoretical and practical solutions for prosumer oriented trade”. It will contain an analysis of existing theoretical and practical solutions pertinent to the project. The report should further describe the mechanisms of trade to be used in the rest of the project.

  • Dissemination and communication report, year 1

    Report of the activities performed during the first year of the project, including website number of visitors, number of website updates of information, and participation in events.

  • Ideal-type business models in local smart grids

    Based on a QCA of local smart grid business models worldwide, D2.2 identifies 3 to 5 Ideal-type business models.

  • Market design

    This report presents the results from T6.1 and lays the foundation for T6.3 and T6.4. The report will encompass an evaluation of existing work and provide a description of the market design chosen for further development.

  • Communications Test Plan

    This Test Plan will contain a full description of the test procedures for verification of the API functions.

  • Project website and social networks profiles

    The Website will be available, in a public URL with a name related to the project, and a basic structure able to explain the goals, targets, Consortium, having a space for updating the evolution of the project.
