Elements for implementation of the Model region for Smart Grids in Salzburg: Consumer to Grid and Building to Grid - Last Demand Side Management

C2G – Consumer to Grid

This study examines the behaviour of energy consumers and analyses the consequences within the Smart Grid. The course of the load during the day has two peaks, at midday and evening. At this peaks the demand of energy is higher than the supply – a part of the demanded energy has to be bought by the energy supply company. If a part of the demand will be shifted to another daytime (with a less demand), this peaks could be dropped.

Within this study practicable approaches for the shift of the consumers’ behaviour without a loss of comfort for the consumers (for example by an automatic turn on of electrical load in households at periods with a less demand) are examined.

B2G – Building to Grid

This project deals about the temporal control of the energy demand of buildings with the object to reduce the peaks of energy demand during the day and to optimize the grid operation. For example a building could be “precooled” in daytimes with a low energy demand. So, at daytimes with a high energy demand (for example at midday) it doesn’t need as much energy for cooling as without precooling. Within this project there should be found methods and approaches to optimize these energy demands of buildings. Further implementations of smart and communicative building control systems are tested.
