Abstract

Research on residential smart metering based demand response in Finland is presented. Hourly interval metering and settlement of practically every customer started in the beginning of 2014 as required by the electricity market legislation that aimed at enabling new forms of demand response. To some extent this already happened. 1) Customers are now offered home automation based demand response, including fuel switching. 2) There is about 1 GW of Time of Use (ToU) load, and new smart metering and settlement made it possible to make a substantial part of it dynamically respond to situations in the electricity market and network. Helsinki Energy and its partners developed an operational model for market based dynamic load control to replace static ToU load controls, and implemented it with smart meters. 3) Loiste in Kainuu has implemented smart metering based direct load control of residential ToU customers and the response is used as system reserve. The value of demand response depends very much on the accuracy of response forecasting. Both in Helsinki and Kainuu field tests to support response modelling were completed in winter 2014. This paper describes the field tests and related model development for forecasting and optimising the load responses
