Intelligent flexible energy demand management in coupled hybrid grids


GEDERA is a research project whose objective is the study and development of a multi-agent architecture that enables the development of applications for the smart grid, focusing the project on the management of flexibility in buildings. The vision of the project is that the multi-agent architecture will enable the possibility of interconnecting different services for data provision, control, prediction, optimal planning, etc. in a transparent way for the user.



    • Research and develop an architecture for the management of energy flexibility that contemplates sectoral coupling and enables the implementation of services in a scalable, secure and sustainable manner.
    • Research and develop a new generation of electrical and thermal loads adapted to the provision of flexibility and enabling sectoral coupling.
    • Research and develop advanced algorithms for the optimal planning of the operation of coupled hybrid grids with demand flexibility.
    • Investigate the involvement of demand flexibility management in current and future electricity markets.
    • Research and develop algorithms for applications that facilitate end-user participation in demand flexibility services in coupled hybrid energy grids.


  • Research into new M2M communications protocols and standards, with devices in the electricity grid, as well as with user interaction devices.
  • Prediction of energy generation and demand in residential environments.
  • Flexible power prediction resulting from demand flexibility in residential environments.
  • Development of algorithms for market trading for future aggregators.
  • Ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of communications between storage plant operators and with the market.

Expected Results

  • Selection of an M2M communication protocol appropriate to the architecture and needs of the project. Programming and implementation of the same.
  • Algorithms for predicting energy generation and demand in residential environments.
  • Algorithms for predicting demand flexibility in terms of available active power.
  • Algorithms for market negotiation for future aggregators.
  • Registration of activities with Blockchain.

R&D Line

  • Research on control algorithms for flexible demand, demand response and market participation.
