Decentralised Energy Optimisation For Blocks of Buildings

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Policy and new technologies are transforming the energy
landscape in the UK. Centralised control of electrical generation
and unidirectional distribution have a finite part in a sustainable
energy system. Subsidies have encouraged an increase in
distributed resources. At the same time closure of larger fossilfuelled power plants is reducing system inertia on energy
networks. In this study, a decentralised proactive approach to
demand-side response exploiting building thermal inertia is
presented using machine learning methods and a real-time
adaptation algorithm. This paper proposes a dynamic 2-step
energy consumption prediction scheme that can be configured
to provide efficiency opportunities and the potential to reduce
energy costs in buildings. The approach adopted optimises
energy usage through existing demand-side response
mechanisms utilising decentralised frequency regulation. The
paper concludes with a discussion on the future direction of
research.
