The foreseen deployment of Distributed Energy Resources (DER), together with advanced building automation technologies, promises to turn passive consumers into active prosumers. These new resources include Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS), stationary storage, Electric Vehicles (EV), photovoltaic (PV) systems, etc., and they are expected to be equipped with sensors that will enable remote monitoring and control functionalities.
These technologies can render great benefits to the power systems by increasing the flexibility of the available resources. Demand flexibility in particular is widely acknowledged as a solution to increase the integration of renewable energy sources, improve the operation of transmission and distribution networks, and enhance the economic effectiveness of electricity markets.
