Integral BEMS controlled LVPP in the smart grid: An approach to a complex distributed system of the built environment for sustainability

  title={Integral BEMS controlled LVPP in the smart grid: An approach to a complex distributed system of the built environment for sustainability},
  author={W. Zeiler and Ko Kennedy Aduda and Tom Thomassen},
The Built Environment is the most complex distributed system with its energy networks. It has a huge impact on ecology and economy as it is responsible for nearly 40% of the total energy use and the related emissions. There is growing interest in the proliferation of smart grid technologies to enable the growth of renewable energy installations both on a distributed basis as well as at the utility scale. Renewable energy, like wind and solar power, are depending on the weather conditions. This… Expand
