The second in line of a number of informative and fun factsheets to highlight some of the research and developments in the Sim4Blocks project in order to promote its work and results, has been published.

The factsheet will explain Sim4Blocks’ contribution to understanding methods that can be used to estimate how the EU’s building stock can contribute to demand response and the wider stability of the grid: “Understanding the potential energy flexibility of buildings”.

This fundamental, simplified and yet informative piece of communication is a picture of how the project studied two approaches, classification and clustering models to help build the dataset on the DR potential of buildings in the EU based on tests at the pilot site of Wüstenrot in Germany. The project aimed to find methods that can be up-scaled to see which demand response services are suitable for different building groups.

This is the second in a series of Sim4Blocks factsheets. Keep an eye out on the website for more.
