EMBS – Energy Management Building Set

The EMBS project develops an innovative, integrated control and planning system for demand-response and optimization of multi-utility/-energy devices and installations.

Based on the developed solution users and operators of such technologies (aggregators, energy service providers, …) will be able to both dimension and plan as well as operationally manage and control their installations and devices in an optimized way.

The main goals of the project are:

(1) prototyping and validation of the business models based on user data,
(2) optimal sizing and combination of multi-utility systems for new business cases,
(3) developing an ICT architecture for multi-utility demand response control schedules and optimization,
(4) CHP/battery/heat buffer-based validation demonstrator
(5) ensuring transnational and trans-market transferability to an as large extent as possible through a modular, adaptable architecture.

As test case and demonstration site CHP installations will be used.
