Abstract

The penetration and growing diversity of Distributed Energy Resources in Renewable Energy Communities (RECs) are currently on the rise. The challenge with these emerging ecosystems is that their effective integration and management are becoming increasingly complex. The Collaborative Virtual Power Plant Ecosystem (CVPP-E) concept was proposed as a contribution to their effective management using a collaborative approach. Here, the CVPP manager promotes collaborative behaviour such as collaborative consumption by influencing the consumption behaviour of members through incentives. The objective is to influence community members to “delegate” their “deferrable loads” for effective management by the manager. In this work, a framework for modelling and simulation of incentivization and related behavioural intervention, adapting the CVPP-E as a digital twin model of a REC is described. The architectural structure, context of incentivization, behavioural change techniques, modelling methodology and expected outcomes of the model are outlined. Some key definitions for the model and future works are also introduced.
