The Sim4Blocks european project objectives are:
- Specify the technical characteristics of the demand flexibility that will enable dynamic demand response (DR).
- Study the optimal use of DR capability in the context of market tariffs and renewable energy supply fluctuations.
- Develop and implement market access and business models for DR models offered by blocks of buildings with a focus on shifting power to heat applications and the optimisation of the available energy vectors in buildings.
Founded by the EU programme for research and innovation - Horizon 2020, the project started in 2016 and will run until 2020.
