Scalable Energy Management Infrastructure for Aggregation of Households

A novel and open ICT infrastructure for the implementation of automated Demand Response in households will see the light of day. SEMIAH will develop a generic environment for the deployment and innovation of smart grid services in households. The SEMIAH concept will enable aggregation of all households connected to the system and will act through direct load control to remotely shift or curtail electrical loads according to users’ flexibilities. Security and privacy functions will be integrated in all elements. Another essential cornerstone is development of new business models for electricity players and residential customers.
