MERGE Match demand/response
MERGE matches energy demand and supply.
Effective and acceptable energy management systems and user interfaces to match energy demand and supply.
Merge aims to develop an energy managing system and related user interface that can match demand and supply from various energy sources and that is likely to be adopted and properly employed by (potential) users. Future energy systems will integrate energy from various sources, that can be tailored to user preferences.
User autonomy versus system automatization
To secure efficiency of the system, the system requires almost continuous decisions making. We will study the impact of user autonomy versus system automatization in these decisions, as well as the effects of feedback to encourage energy conservation.
We will collaborate with researchers from the faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Groningen, in order to design effective and acceptable user interfaces.
