The aim of the DR-BOB project is to demonstrate the economic and environmental benefits of demand response in blocks of buildings for the different key actors required to bring it to market. To achieve its aim the DR-BOB project will:
• Integrate existing technologies to form the DR-BOB Demand Response Energy Management solution for blocks-of-buildings.
• Demonstrate the DR-BOB integrated solution at 4 sites operating under different energy market and climatic conditions in the UK, France, Italy and Romania.
• Provide and validate a method of assessing technology readiness related to the technologies required for consumers’ facilities managers, buildings and the local energy infrastructure to participate in the Demand Response Energy Management solution at any given site.
• Engage with companies involved in the supply chain for demand response in blocks of buildings across the EU to disseminate the projects goals and findings.
