Nearly Zero Energy Buildings, Home Flexibility and Electrical Vehicles impact over Energy Community Microgrid

Abstract

The recent Energy Communities paradigm led to the establishment of local microgrid solutions connecting the community members to the DSO grid. Moreover, this paradigm also led to the increase of new distributed generation units in these low voltage grids, mostly due to the uprise of nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) type of buildings inside the community. Since not all Energy Communities present the same topology (number, size and location of its buildings) it is important to research the impacts that the Energy Community topology may have on the local microgrid. This paper aims to study the impact of the Energy Communities establishment and how nZEB building conversion, local home flexibility and Electrical Vehicle (EV) charging can help mitigate those impacts. A methodology is established to study the micro grid impacts, based on 1-min resolution data, taking into account the different possible options.
