Abstract

The environmental issues caused by conventional and centralized fossil-fuel based power generation has driven the decentralized structure of electricity grid. These grids are dominated by high penetration of variable Renewable Energy Sources (RES) such as a wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) units, which is challenging to the grid operation and control. In that connection, nowadays buildings are also becoming more technologically complex and intelligent due to increasing automation, integration of energy sizable flexible loads (heat pumps, electric vehicles etc.) and local RES units. The energy generated by private residential RES are generally intended for private use but it can also be sold back to the grid based on different operational and electricity market scenarios. To efficiently balance the local energy systems in the residential buildings, maximize the use of RES and financially benefit the prosumers, storage units like Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) plays an important role. This paper aims to analyse the management of such smart sustainable buildings subjected to variable generation and demand scenarios.
