The main objectives of this work package are the following:

  • Installation of additional equipment needed for DR actions proposed in the Sim4Blocks project
  • Translate energy management strategies into control algorithms for building or blocks of buildings energy management systems
  • Determine which control decisions are taken on a decentralised or central management level as a function of stakeholder intentions
  • Test energy management components in HiL environments
  • Design and implement communication interfaces and access to data management system
  • Design and implement a data infrastructure for district level DR
  • Implement DR strategies in the pilot sites and apply commissioning procedures
  • Develop joint methodology for continuous commissioning of EM systems
  • Develop, test and optimise software versions
