4. Demand Response in Blocks of Buildings
March 2016 the DR-BOB project started. In this project we test the economic and environmental benefits of Demand Response systems for blocks of buildings at four different locations. Recently a stakeholder- and market analysis were completed. Subsequently demonstration scenarios were developed which describe how energy consumption can be decreased, increased or shifted as a reaction to economic incentives. Next we will focus on the implementation of the systems and the development of associated business models.
