towards the future of the energy systems

About the Webinars

INESC TEC, through its Centre for Power and Energy Systems and the Energy cluster, has launched the Power and Energy Webinar Series initiative. In each webinar, a researcher from INESC TEC will present and discuss ideas, expected outcomes, or results regarding the energy systems of the future. In some webinars, external speakers will be invited. The expected duration of the webinar is between 45 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the format. Discussion between the speakers and the participants will be held in the last part of each webinar.

Tools for promoting self-consumption and Renewable Energy Communities

July 14 • 11:00 (GMT+1) • 12:00 (CET)

Renewable Energy Community Pairing methodology applying machine learning to georeferenced energy profiles

Alexandre Lucas, Senior Researcher at INESC TEC Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES)

A pairing evaluation of potential renewable energy community participants, ahead of asset dimensioning, can ensure higher rates of collective self-consumption from the beginning. A pairing methodology can be greatly improved by using georeferenced load consumptions. In this webinar the methodology will be explained and a case study based at a district level is presented, to show real life estimations. QGIS, PlanHeat tools and a supervised statistical learning approach are used to identify the feature importance of an overall district energy consumption profile. With the main variables identified, the methodology applies standard K-means and Dynamic Time Warping clustering from which, users from different clusters should be paired with. To validate the assumption, that this complementarity of load diagrams could decrease total surplus of a typical PV generation, 18 different pairings from the case study are tested to share the results with the webinar’s audience.

Integrating energy and flexibility local markets with self-consumption regulation

José Villar, Senior Researcher at INESC TEC Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES)

João Mello, Research Assistant and PhD Student at INESC TEC Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES)

In this webinar, we will present the new self-consumption Portuguese regulation and how it may allow peers to trade energy in a post-delivery local energy market, significantly facilitating their engagement by eliminating the need to forecast energy deliveries. We also show how the provision of flexibility could be integrated with the post-delivery market by solving the energy transfer issues among suppliers and aggregators.
