FLEXCoop aims at facilitating the energy transition. It is a set of tools - physical ones like the Open Smart Box, but mostly softwares - automating your electricity consumption and making sure energy is consumed at the best time for you and for the grid. Here is an overview of the functioning of the overall FLEXCoop solution and of the role of each module.
Enabling two-side communication
Within each participating household, FLEXCoop connects to sensors and devices through the Smart Box, enabling two-sides communication, from the home to FLEXCoop and from FLEXCoop back to the user:
Enabling residential demand response
The main feature of FLEXCoop is to enable renewable energy cooperatives (REScoops) to use their members flexibilities in order to help them consuming at the best time. On this regards, cooperatives are playing the role of aggregators, acting as intermediary between their members and the energy system.
Thanks to the FLEXCoop solution, the REScoops can induce different consumption schedules to their members devices enabling them to answer to request from the grid: consuming when there are more renewables, maintaining grid balance at 50 Hz or supporting congestion management. The prosumers will be able to chose their preferred approach thanks to the FLEXCoop Marketplace. The Marketplace will facilitate contracting, and enable aggregators to find interested prosumers and prosumers to opt for their preferred approach.
FLEXCoop is built out of different modules were each one plays a particular role.
Each module plays a key role and holds the know-how of a different partner. We are now impatient to be able to test it with our pilot users in Spain and in the Netherlands!
