The Slovenian pilot focuses on flexibility from households in Slovenia’s Celje region who have heat pumps and photovoltaic systems. In general, the region’s substations have a large share of renewables.
Flexibility from households
Within the household: Self-optimisation, energy efficiency, environmental awareness and incentives, Implicit & explicit demand response
Within the pilot site: More efficient use of electricity, heavy load utilization, peak shaving, energy independence, CO2 reduction
Within the local power network: Frequency control, voltage control, active power control, load balancing, power factor correction, loss reduction
First phase focus
Household flexibility & demand response
Develop and utilise Customer Energy Manager (CEM) and corresponding Resource Manager (RM) to carefully balance consumption with PV generation. Sources of flexibility for optimising self-consumption are heat pump’s storage boilers and household specific thermal capacity. Flexibility from white goods is utilised where available, designing and evaluating the corresponding RMs.
Extend and utilise CEM and corresponding RMs to adapt consumption in combination with production to minimise costs regarding network tariffs. Price-optimise network tariff consumption with regards to self-consumption.
Implicit Demand Response
Use flexibility available through CEM and RMs to shift household loads at times of high consumption and high production. Develop and utilise aggregated flexibility services on a mixture of high thermal consumers with and without installed PVs to improve network-wise utilisation of renewables and to lower peak consumption.
