Topic: Energy Services for local communities
Abstract: The FP7 NOBEL proposes a panel session on Energy Services offered to local communities. NOBEL is a research project that is building an energy brokerage system with which individual energy consumers will be able to communicate their energy needs directly with both large-scale and small-scale energy producers, thereby making energy use more efficient.
The key to NOBEL’s efficiency improvement is that prosumers (producers and consumers) become sources of both energy and information. The information allows the energy system to better adapt the amount of electricity in the network to the real time demand. The performance of the entire system is enhanced by exploiting the locality of the processes in the monitoring and control that normally do not consider the detailed behaviour of the actual consumers.
The proposed panel includes not only the presentation of the NOBEL main service for neighbourhoods – the energy brokerage engine – but also the presentation of other third party services that enable the inclusion of the end-user in the grid, not only to provide for accurate information, but also to promote new business opportunities and technologies – e.g. electrical vehicle, balancing market.
