Smart digitally enabled appliances
Smart software agents can be designed into standard appliance controllers at very low unit cost. They enable customer equipment to adapt to price signals e.g. by charging electric vehicles when electricity is abundant, while also respecting user or technical constraints. Advanced algorithms learn about environment and customer behaviour for continuously improving performance:
- Scalability, integrate seamlessly into existing energy systems
- Ease of operation, maintenance and emergency control.
- Data protection, no private data is disclosed
Automatic merit order
All devices can directly participate in the market. They operate in the way most profitable for their owners by adapting price preferences to achieve their service at lowest cost or highest income. The market is fully transparent and creates a “merit order” for flexibility that minimizes its total cost.
