"Flexibility 2.1: From Demand Response to Renewable Energy Communities"

“Energy communities can help in providing flexibility to the electricity system through demand response and storage” [EU Commission, Dec 2020]. This public webinar briefly presented various results from the following 15 European-funded projects, each focused on a unique aspect of the energy transition both at building and community levels. The webinar aimed to kickstart stakeholder engagement within a shared LinkedIn group of the same name, open to anyone with interest.

In the first two TABEDE webinars, we introduced you to demand response and its implementation obstacles in a building with or without a Building Management System (BMS), thanks to the TABEDE BMS-Extender solution. This time, we opened the doors of our Pilots: a smart house (in Cardiff, UK), a residential building (in Bergamo – Italy) and an office building (in Grenoble – France) to see how the BMS-Extender is being deployed and validated. Additionally, we provided some recommendations to standardization and regulatory bodies that could empower the widespread adoption of demand response tools.
