IEA DSM Task 17 - Extension: Integration of Demand Side Management, Distributed Generation, Renewable Energy Sources and Energy Storages (working period 2013 - 2016)
The aim was to exchange experiences and developments in the field of integrating renewables with the help of DSM in residential and commercial buildings. Technologies like PV systems, electric vehicles, electric storages, heat pumps, micro-CHP in combination with energy management systems (via gateways), and implementing dynamic tariffs using smart meters offer huge potential to increase energy efficiency. Phase 3 of this Task addressed the current role and potential of flexible buildings and their related implied changes and impacts on the grid and markets. The scalability and applicability of successful projects with respect to specific regional differences and requirements was also explored.
