It is expected that future buildings will be able to manage their demand and generation not only according to local climate conditions and user needs, but also related to changing grid requirements. This development will introduce new challenges regarding asset management, which so far have not been explored.
This innovation adoption research identifies key opportunities and barriers for asset managers from a case study that considers changing grid conditions on a university campus in the Netherlands. The case illustrates that implementing energy flexibility is certainly not only a problem of data communication and transfer. The paper sets the scene that asset management for energy flexibility also requires detailed consideration and planning of required technical changes in buildings and grids.
