Unlocking Demand Response at the Building Level: a Distributed Energy Optimisation Approach Oudom Kem, Feirouz Ksontini



In this paper, we propose a distributed optimisation approach based on Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers to optimise building energy consumption, reduce energy bills, and adopt demand response (DR) schemes at the building level by exploiting building flexibility. Different optimisation models are proposed to represent the types of flexibility offered by building devices and to incorporate DR incentives. The evaluations of the approach show significant energy cost saving and prove the feasibility of DR adoption.
