In the EU, households represent 27,4% of the final energy consumption. The residential loads often contribute significantly to seasonal and daily peak demand. To support this variation, utility companies need to increase their generation, to avoid interruption in power supply.

Matching electricity supply and demand at all times is becoming more challenging and the electricity system needs more flexibility.

Nowadays, the European residential sector offers huge energy demand flexibility, mainly due the huge thermal energy storage and power management capabilities of the buildings.

Flexible consumption could play an important role in the residential sector.

Residential demand response can reduce the need for fossil fuel power plants and help integrate renewable energy onto the electric grid by providing increased stability and management.
