IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme (External organisation)

Activity: MembershipsMembership of research networks or expert groups


Involvement in Annex 82-subtask C member, along with my colleague Toke Haunstrup Christensen.
Subtask C: Stakeholder acceptance and engagement
The aim is to investigate:

how different occupants and owners of buildings perceive energy flexibility in their buildings
barriers and motivating factors for providing flexibility services
barriers and motivations for utility companies and aggregators to utilize clusters of buildings for flexibility services
barriers and motivations for energy technology providers (e.g. consultants and manufacturers) to develop solutions to optimize flexibility services from clusters of buildings while minimizing the price of the equipment
how people will react to extreme events with regard to providing flexibility – at one hand in mitigating effects caused by these events or on the other hand adapt to these events
how the view of the stakeholders can be utilized in the development of feasible technical solutions, e.g. by applying new design approaches such as cocreation and co-design methods
The subtask will involve social scientists as well as technical experts.

Subtask leaders: Toke Haunstrup Christensen, Aalborg University, Denmark; and Armin Knotzer, AEE INTEC, Austria.
