In December edition of magazine “Napędy i Sterowanie”(Scientific-Technical Monthly Magazine „Drives and Control”) there was an article about “Possibility to increase energy efficiency of smart buildings through their cooperation with virtual power plant”. This text was written as a part of oBEMS project (Office Building Energy Management System) developed by Virtual Power Plant and co-financed by EU’s Operational Programme Smart Growth 2014-2020.
The authors of this text are prof. dr hab. Jerzy Mikulik and dr Piotr Bartkiewicz . In this article authors underlined additional possibilities how to increase energy efficiency of smart building through connecting it to so-called virtual power plant. Such connection can lead to conscious reduction of consumed power by the building and provision of this power in form of “negawatts” to other energy consumers. These actions require construction of smart power and energy markets.
“Providing energy security becomes new challenge for many innovative projects from the fields of smart energy and at the same it will create additional revenue streams for active energy consumers. Energy efficiency of smart buildings can be still improved by a few percent through intelligent disconnecting of chosen energy intensive devices, providing that required comfort parameters are still met, and people working inside the building will not feel the deterioration of working conditions” – this and more can be read in the article available at the website of magazine “Napędy i Sterowanie”.
Article “„Possibility to increase energy efficiency of smart buildings through their cooperation with virtual power plant” was written as a part of oBEMS project (Office Building Energy Management System) intelligent hardware and software overlay for office building automation systems, need method of managing comfort, electricity and heat which optimizes ventilation, heat and air conditioning (HVAC) in real time with the use of multisensory map of comfort” is implemented under Measure 1.1. “Projects R & D enterprises”, Measure 1.1.1 .: “Industrial research and development work carried out by the company” Smart Development Operational Programme 2014-2020, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
