MIRABEL: Micro-Request-Based Aggregation, Forecasting and Scheduling of Energy Demand, Supply and Distribution

B. Filipič, T. Tušar, E. Dovgan

Supported by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), this project was aimed at developing a conceptual and infrastructual approach that allows energy distribution companies to efficiently manage higher amounts of renewable energy and balance energy supply and demand. Specifically, we worked on a concept of micro-requests with time shifts to handle the demand and supply of energy on a household level. Further, we defined methods to predict the energy supply and demand in the small (i.e., for households) and in the large and to update predictions over time. We aggregated (and disaggregated) the micro-requests on a regional level, and we developed a scheduling approach for energy production and consumption based on aggregated requests.
