The Micro DE project was a scoping and feasibility study to identify opportunities for micro-generation storage and control technology development at an individual dwelling level in the UK. The study investigated the potential for reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions through Distributed Energy (DE) technologies. This was achieved through the development of a segmented model of the UK housing stock supplemented with detailed, real-time supply and demand energy-usage gathered from field trials of micro distributed generation and storage technology in conjunction with building control systems. The outputs of this project now feed into the Smart Systems and Heat programme.
This deliverable is number 6 of 9 in Work Package 1. It summarises the current market position and technologies associated with the control of distributed energy systems at the individual dwelling level. It is split into 4 parts:
Heating Controls : conventional controls for domestic hot water / storage and heating systems
Advanced Controls : products which integrate existing control strategies to improve the performance of micro-generation systems within the built environment
Thermal DE : control of heat pump and solar thermal systems
Electrical DE : control of solar PV and micro-wind systems used for the generation of electricity
