IEA EBC Annex 82: Energy flexible buildings towards resilient low carbon energy systems

The aim of the Annex is to gain knowledge about the energy flexibility services that buildings and clusters of buildings may deliver to different types of energy networks. The project increases the knowledge about the barriers and motivation for the stakeholders. Their constructive involvement is a key for making building energy flexibility a value for the resilience of future energy networks.

IEA EBC Annex 83 - Positive Energy Districts

A positive energy district (PED) is an urban area/neighbourhood that is able to generate more energy than it consumes and is agile/flexible enough to respond to energy market fluctuations. This is where the IEA-Annex 83 and commissioned leading Austrian research institutions come in to collect, systematise, synthesise and process the knowledge and experience of the international scientific community on PEDs in a form that is understandable for practitioners.

IEA EBC Annex 84: Demand Management of Buildings in Thermal Networks

The concept of demand-side management (DSM) in buildings to reduce peak loads in the grid is well established in the power sector. The same concept can be applied to shift thermal loads in buildings connected to thermal networks. This project addresses the topic of demand response in buildings, focusing on the collection of case studies, technologies and collaboration models.
