Objectives This submission seeks to install DDMS in 6 houses with suitable control and signalling back to a central control hub, the aim being to control domestic electrical heat demand during times of network strain such as, at times of exceptionally low or high demand. Heat storage devices (immersion water heaters & space storage heaters) will be installed with control systems enabling them to become inertial energy storage devices on the electrical network, thus allowing the local DNO to have a degree of control over local demand response and frequency response. Any information gathered during this project will inform the larger Tier 2 proposal along with other modelling/projects/products around GB, regarding DDMS.
Abstract This Project will trial a small number of Domestic Demand Management Solutions (DDMS) in the Shetlands. By working collaboratively with their partners, this project is seen as the first step towards a larger roll out of the solutions under Northern Isles New Energy Solutions (NINES) Project.
