Optimising domestic energy use through demand management and integration with renewable energy

Project

.It is recognised that greater control of energy demand within buildings can improve user comfort, energy efficiency and help with the integration of renewable energy generation, which is non dispatchable and variable in output. This project considered what the most appropriate methods were for controlling electricity demand in British households. In particular the provision of domestic hot water was investigated, because it represents a significant proportion of total energy consumption and hot water tanks provide an efficient way of storing energy. Novel approaches to shift electricity demand under different scenarios were sought through the application of stochastic modelling and pilot study findings.
