The behaviour of electricity consumers is the target of new design rules and policies. Energy efficiency self-consumption, demand management and aggregation of the available flexibility are the challenges to be addressed in such a new context which pave the way toward new ways of consuming electricity.
We are delighted to invite you to a workshop, hosted by FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy of the University of Cyprus, titled “Emerging Energy Systems & the role of Demand Response”. The workshop will address the evolving new electricity market and Demand Response, focusing on the concept of the aggregator and two EU funded research and innovation projects, DELTA and DRIMPAC. Working on the next generation of demand response technology and innovation, DELTA and DRIMPAC are inviting all those interested in smart grids and the future of energy markets to join them in discussing the latest trends in energy flexibility.
Relevant stakeholders from policy, industry and end-consumers will come together to exchange views in a transparent and constructive way on the challenges ahead. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the innovative areas of research which the projects are pioneering. The workshop will emphasize on the user engagement activities which inhabit or operate within the pilot sites as well as addressing their concerns. The main aim is to finalize the recruitment and preparation of the citizens as well as to motivate them so that they actively participate. Additionally, discussions on the project objectives and how they will impact the future energy markets will be held enabling guests to provide feedback which will assist in the validation of user requirement and business cases.
The workshop and conference will take place on the 22nd of November at the University of Cyprus Library.
