The deliverable will define in detail the Performance Measurement and Verification Methodology (PMV) for defining the baseline and monitoring the performance of the MERLON ILES post-intervention.
The deliverable is concerned with the development of new business models for integrated local energy systems that will be able to integrate within current market and regulatory frameworks in addition to novel models that will assume that the disruptive MERLON concept will be steeply up-taken
This deliverable will focus on the definition of the MERLON Business Scenarios and Use Cases and will end-up to the extraction of respective high-level user requirements for the Integrated MERLON Framework.
The deliverable consists in the detailed design of the conceptual architecture and specifications of the MERLON framework (functional components, interoperability aspects, internal and external interfaces, technical specifications and non-functional specifications).
The deliverable will report on implemented activities and update the schedule for the collaboration activities with BRIDGE and other similar projects.
The deliverable will report on the ex-ante surveys conducted with regards to the Spanish pilot site and detail the equipment deployment plan in pilot premises
The deliverable consists in the high level domain model comprising the basic elements (semantic concepts, events, relations and respective data models etc.) underlying the MERLON ILES Framework.
The deliverable will configure DER device models to define and formalize their control and response capabilities to achieve specific flexibility levels.
The deliverable will provide the necessary methodological pathway to enable the holistic evaluation and impact assessment of the MERLON project, following the pilot roll-out phase.
The deliverable will report on implemented activities and update the schedule for the activities of the MERLON Living Lab.
The deliverable will analyse the prevailing legislation and regulatory frameworks in the pilot sites with respect to LES and identify constraints and restrictions for the smooth introduction of innovative technologies and business models in energy markets.
The deliverable will review the standardization landscape and evaluate the latest evolutions in DR, interoperability between energy market stakeholders and communication between devices and systems.
The deliverable will provide an initial schedule for the activities of the MERLON Living Lab.
The deliverable will provide an initial plan for the collaboration activities with BRIDGE and other similar projects.
The deliverable will report on the ex-ante surveys conducted with regards to the Austrian pilot site and detail the equipment deployment plan in pilot premises
The deliverable refers to the detailed design and development of the MERLON Interoperability and Data Management Framework (sub-modules, interfaces, data flows etc) in line with the overall project specifications.
The deliverable consists in a module that enables the simulation of the MERLON scenarios in real-time and facilitates the study of particularly critical phenomena for the ILES including transient analysis, power quality and battery system behaviour.
The deliverable will define the specifications for the configuration and develop an intelligent thermal storage software component applicable to various building types independent of their size, use and construction characteristics
The deliverable refers to the development of planning algorithms that simulate the operation of the electrical network in appropriate horizons (related to regulatory regimes and asset lifetimes) to automatically calculate distribution reliability, performance and power quality metrics based on equipment characteristics and planned/unplanned events.
The deliverable consists in the design and implementation of the main Visual Analytics platform for the Aggregator, which will allow for multi-parameter criteria Analysis over consumer portfolios, addressing technical as well as market potential. The tool will allow for the historical analysis of demand flexibility data (as acquired from the MERLON pilot sites) enabling the realization of forecasting, segmentation and clustering functions as part of the aggregator operations introduced in the project.
The deliverable will focus on the provision of realistic models of the pilot networks (Spain, Austria) in Matlab/Simulink and development of simulation scenarios that capture the anticipated evolution of the pilot networks and their assets.
The deliverable consists in the definition and configuration of the MERLON Flexibility Profiling Framework enabling the extraction of context-aware demand flexibility profiles for the different demand assets introduced in MERLON.
The deliverable will report on implemented activities and update the schedule for the dissemination and communications activities of the Project.
The deliverable will provide the initial schedule for the dissemination and communications activities of the Project.
The deliverable will elaborate the Data Management Plan (DMP) of the project, comprising of (i) handling of research data during & after the project; (ii) what data will be collected, processed or generated; (iii) what methodology & standards will be applied; and (iv) whether data will be shared /made open access/ how data will be curated and preserved.
