A Cloud-Based Energy Management System for Building Managers

Abstract

A Local Energy Management System (LEMS) is described to control Electric Vehicle charging and Energy Storage Units within built environments. To this end, the LEMS predicts the most probable half hours for a triad peak, and forecasts the electricity demand of a building facility at those times. Three operational algorithms were designed, enabling the LEMS to (i) flatten the demand profile of the building facility and reduce its peak, (ii) reduce the demand of the building facility during triad peaks in order to reduce the Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges, and (iii) enable the participation of the building manager in the grid balancing services market through demand side response. The LEMS was deployed on over a cloud-based system and demonstrated on a real building facility in Manchester, UK.
