Active Demand Value And Consumers Experience Discovery


ADVANCED vision is to make AD adopted at large scale in Europe by residential, commercial and industrial consumers and the energy market players and stakeholders.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° 308923.


Leveraging on the empirical data and lessons learnt in real Active Demand (AD) experiences, the overall objective of the 24 months project is to develop actionable frameworks enabling residential, commercial and industrial consumers to participate in AD.

The benefits of AD for the key stakeholders and the inherent impacts on the electricity systems are to be quantified taking different scenarios into account.
