Project: Grid Responsive Society Through Building Automation Systems

This project aims to achieve grid responsive consumer side resources through gamified competition between the building owners with widely used automation technologies. The project has three main stages. The first stage comprises the establishment of two different building automation systems in two building sites and a general monitoring and control of the systems through a user-friendly interface. At the second stage, local generation and storage facilities as well as manageable loads of the sites will be managed according to grid requirements through the established automation infrastructure and the developed interface. The last stage is devoted to the design and application of a gamified competition to motivate building owners to engage in demand response programs. Appropriate Key Performance Indicators (KPI) will be used to evaluate the buildings response to the grid requirements and consumer engagement in demand response schemes.
