Utilities Policy, 2020, vol. 65, issue C

Abstract: Demand-side flexibility is a promising source of the energy system that might enhance renewable energy penetration and help to democratize the electricity sector. However, it is not clear what is the best strategy to adopt for Demand Aggregators, especially when flexibility is provided by residential and tertiary buildings. This study compares two Demand Aggregators strategies in the framework of the SABINA (H2020) and the REFER research projects and analyses the effect of CO2 prices on the Demand Aggregator business model. Results show that Demand Response activities reduce both the costs and the building CO2 emissions independently from the strategy adopted.
