FlexHousing: New concept for House Energy Automation
24, Jan, 2017 11:30-12:30 (1 hour)
CISTER, Porto, Portugal

The revolution in the energy market and the end user need to control the things he has around him lead to the creation of a new concept: flexoffers.
The flexoffer is built around scheduling energy usage with the prices of the energy market. The flexoffer is comprised of the pattern of usage and a window of when the pattern can begin. Those parameters are exposed to the energy markets using an Aggregator, entity responsible for gathering all the flexoffers in a region. The market will reply to the flexoffer proposition with the best time for the consumption of that energy, which in this case is when the prices are the lowest. This talk revolves around the implementation of a pilot capable of applying that concept to a real life situation. Thus FlexHousing was created. It allows for the control of the energy usage of the appliances in a home or building.
