PV-Prosumers4Grid (PVP4Grid) is an EU-funded project involving 12 partners from various European countries, beginning in October 2017 and running until March 2020. The main objective of PVP4Grid is to increase the market share and market value of PV by enabling consumers to become PV prosumers in a system-friendly manner. PVP4Grid aims at a better power system integration of PV with a focus on market integration.

Cooling down is catching on. As incomes rise and populations grow, especially in the world’s hotter regions, the use of air conditioners is becoming increasingly common. In fact, the use of air conditioners and electric fans already accounts for about a fifth of the total electricity in buildings around the world – or 10% of all global electricity consumption. Over the next three decades, the use of ACs is set to soar, becoming one of the top drivers of global electricity demand.

Smart-Up is an EU funded project that will encourage vulnerable customers in those Member States that have embarked on the roll-out of Smart Meters to actively use their Smart Meters and In-House Displays to achieve energy savings. Previous studies have shown that Smart Meters do not lead to energy savings in the residential sector unless households actively use them and modify their energy-use behaviour. This project will fill the gap, as well as raise awareness on demand response services.

Beyond Energy Efficiency: A Guide to Advanced Demand-Side Management Applications   How can energy services companies (ESCOs) get in on the demand response action? Their first step is to become demand-side management (DSM) enabled beyond energy efficiency. Not only do Demand-Side Management applications contribute to environmental sustainability objectives, but they can also offer unprecedented opportunities for the buildings sector to reap multiple economic benefits beyond energy efficiency.
