Abstract:
The high penetration of intelligent appliances has turned whole buildings into effective and efficient prosumers. These distributed and autonomous intelligent Commercial Prosumer Hubs, constituted of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) clusters raising an actual decentralized Demand Side Management (DSM), behave like Smart Virtual Power Plants. An Aggregator manages the new Smart Virtual Power Plant enabling the electricity production and consumption to be measured, reported and controlled in real time. This new infrastructure maximizes the response capacity of the vast, small-commercial prosumer base (e.g., tertiary buildings, offices, etc.), presenting incentives and delivering benefits through their automated active participation in the energy market, aligning consumption by asking consumers to reduce their power usage rather than increasing the power generation facilities. Under this approach, prosumers that cooperate might receive incentive payments from the power company. In comparison, the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm claims to solve this issue expanding Demand Response services based on the analysis of occupants historical interactions with the lighting, ventilation and air conditioning controls. In this respect, an overlay smart network for efficient grid control, running on top of the existing energy grid and incorporating high levels of distributed intelligence within autonomous and semantically enhanced Prosumer Hubs (local hub) will bring to the new concept of Internet Of Energy. This new smart network addresses the present structural inertia of the Distribution Grid by introducing more active elements combined with the necessary control and distributed coordination mechanisms, as well as Demand Side Management Operator.
