Prosumer Flexibility Services for Smart Grid Management

Objectif

The advent of distributed power sources, such as photovoltaics and windmill plants, gave rise to energy prosumers (producers-consumers), which generate and consume electrical energy. Energy demand and energy generation by prosumers are volatile and can impact the grid infrastructure and stakeholders, but they can be flexibly adapted to thwart those impacts.
Flex4Grid aims at creating an open data and service framework that enables a novel concept of managing flexibility of prosumer demand and generation, utilising cloud computing for power grid management and, opening DSO infrastructure for aggregator services. The system will be built up from existing ICT components developed by the consortium partners over many years in research projects on IoT and Cloud computing. This high maturity allows Flex4Grid to aim for a system prototype of TRL 7 which guarantees a maximum impact and competitiveness in the area of the smart grid challenge.
The Flex4Grid system will include a) a data cloud service with anonymised interface and advanced security and privacy mechanisms for data exchange and service management, b) prosumer generation and demand flexibility, and c) a more viable business model to accelerate the deployment. The major innovations are a) opening the market for new entrants by secure and privacy enabling third party cloud data and energy management services, b) actionable common and multilevel data management and analytics services for Smart Grids, and c) the use of co-creation to bring end users into the value creation process.
System validation will be carried out in real-world pilots in three live electricity networks with different scenarios ranging from deployment during smart meter rollout and retrofitting to large scale operation and federated demonstration of multi-site pilots.
