Description du projet :
The consortium behind the SEMIAH project aims to pursue a major technological, scientific and commercial breakthrough by developing a novel and open ICT infrastructure for the implementation of automated Demand Response (DR) in households so as to enable shifting energy consumption from high energy-consuming loads to off-peak periods with high generation of
electricity from Renewable Energy Sources (RES). The project's innovative approach is based on the development of an open ICT framework that will promote a generic environment for the deployment and innovation of smart grid services in households. A DR service based on novel and cutting-edge aggregation, forecasting and scheduling techniques will be developed and validated on this infrastructure. The consortium will furthermore integrate security and privacy functions in all the elements of SEMIAH to ensure that the system cannot be compromised. Finally, the consortium will develop new
business models for electricity players and residential customers to quantify costs and benefits for all players in the value chain.
SEMIAH will provide benefits to residential customers, energy utilities and the society, through lower electricity bills, reduced waste of RES and higher stability of the grid; by enabling savings in CO2 emissions and fuel costs; and by
reducing investments in network expansion and peak generation plants.
In order to achieve project objectives and the projected impacts, a strong and determined consortium has been assembled around the technological skills and competencies needed to overcome the identified challenges. The team of 12 partners from 4 different European countries, coming from ICT (AU, CSEM, UIA and HES-SO), Energy (Fraunhofer, AEnergi, SEIC, ENALP, MIS and Develco) and Telecommunications (DEVO and NetPlus), jointly possess excellence in skills and requirements needed to drive this ambitious project to successful result.
