Smart Grids model region Salzburg – Building to Grid
Buildings constitute a significant part of the load in energy networks but are typically passive consumers. In the context of so-called smart grids, buildings are expected to integrate in a cooperative manner and to expose their currently unused flexibility of operations (shiftable loads, load shedding, duty-cycling, etc.), supported by building automation and information technology. Building optimization and grid optimization, typically decoupled in existing solutions, shall be harmonized. An experiment shall show the potential for grid relief and efficiency improvements of intelligent buildings in a smart grid.
This project is funded in part by the Climate- and Energyfunds and implemented in the context of the programme „Neue Energien 2020“.
