    First CASSANDRA Webinar - Introduction by Jessica Stromback, VaasaETT First CASSANDRA Webinar - Introduction by Jessica Stromback, VaasaETT Presentation Transcript

    • Cassandra Network ofInterest WebinarWelcome to CassandraA multivariate platform for assessing the impactof strategic decisions in electric power systems
    • Welcome to the Cassandra Webinar During this Webinar we will review: 2. Concept and theoretical aspects of CASSANDRA– By Giorgos Andreou, Lecturer at Power Systems Laboratory Departmentof Electrical and Computer Engineering Aristotle University ofThessaloniki 3. Explanation and demonstration of CASSANDRA ModelingPlatform– - By Christos Diou, Postdoctoral Research Associate at Centre forResearch and Technology Hellas ITI - CERTH 4. Next steps and opportunities in platform developmentfor NOI Members 5. QuestionsCassandra Webinar Network ofInterest2June 11, 2013
    • Network of Interest Bring together stakeholders who can provide insight onpossible user requirements Form a community of possible users Allow companies to either test the platform or have their dataprocessed Enable interested parties to adapt this open source platform forcommercial useCassandra 1st Project Review 3Brussels, 11 Jan 2013
    • Cassandra at a glanceDuration: 30 monthsPartners: 91 Research Center, 5 Universities, 3 SMEsPerson-months: 340,5Workpackages: 8Deliverables: 39Requested ECcontribution: 2,834M€
    • Cassandra 1st Project Review 5Brussels, 11 Jan 2013Power System Status – the near future Lack of tools for modeling the new Power System status Inability to aggregate the market power of small-scale consumers Necessity for dynamic models for assessing the impact of actionsand policies to be applied Decentralized, small-scaleproduction sites Renewable energy Market liberation Smart grid More players involvedBig market potential unexploited!
    • The Consumer Individual consumption is insignificant with respect to theconsumption of “bigger” players (Industrial, Commercial,Public Service, Recreational) However aggregate small-scale consumption is significant– Entire residential and large part of the commercial sector In fact, consumer modeling is difficult to achieve, due to:– Lack of metering equipment (i.e. smart meters)– Inability to model consumer activities– Inability to model response to incentives (Demand side)Cassandra 1st Project Review 6Brussels, 11 Jan 2013
    • Filling the gap… Cassandra!A software platform for modeling the energymarket from an end user perspective Main Cassandra objectives:1. Theoretical and software modeling of stakeholders in terms ofenergy profiles and consumption patterns, as well as theirinteractions2. Increase the market power of low level consumers throughConsumer coalitions (Consumer Social Networks - CSNs)3. A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) methodology, in order toassess energy performance and CO2 emissions reduction4. A modular, expandable software platform to model andbenchmark scenarios and act as a Decision making tool.Cassandra 1st Project Review 7Brussels, 11 Jan 2013
