An Energy Flexibility Framework on the Internet of Things

Publication: Research - peer-reviewBook chapter

Abstract

This paper presents a framework for management of flexible energy loads in the context of the Internet of Things and the Smart Grid. The framework takes place in the European project Arrowhead, and aims at taking advantage of the flexibility (in time and power) of energy production and consumption offered by sets of devices, appliances or buildings, to help at solving the issue of fluctuating energy production of renewable energies. The underlying concepts are explained, the actors involved in the framework, their incentives and interactions are detailed, and a technical overview is provided. An implementation of the framework is presented, as well as the expected results of the pilots.
