A stochastic model for scheduling energy flexibility in buildings

By Forsetlund, Henriette Næss 4. August 2015

Stig Ødegaard Ottesen, Head of R&D in eSmart Systems, recently got a paper published in the international research journal, Energy. This journal is ranked at level 2, which is the highest possible ranking.


In the paper Ødegaard Ottesen and Asgeir Tomasgard propose a new model to support the scheduling process for energy flexibility in buildings. They have selected an integrated energy carrier approach based on the energy hub concept, which captures multiple energy carriers, converters, and storages to increase the flexibility potential. Furthermore they propose a general classification of load units according to their flexibility properties. They also define price structures that include both time varying prices and peak power fees.

The paper includes a case study based on Statsbygg’s university college building in Halden. The study shows that the model is able to reduce costs by reducing peak loads and utilizing price differences between periods and energy carriers.
