  • 22. 3 Energy strategies • Build a hyper energy-efficient DC • Network data centres • Energy Demand Management
  • 23. DC Power Network • Network DC Power systems • Generate power by day, consume surplus power by night • Give control of network to TSO • TSO can now buy more wind power
  • 24. More Geek Porn!
  • 25. Energy Demand Management • Can’t control supply • => Control demand • => Energy Demand Management (EDM)
  • 26. EDM Incentives • Single Energy Market • Reduced energy costs • Reduced carbon footprint
  • 27. EDM Strategies • Demand reduction • Energy time-shift • Demand stimulation
  • 28. Demand reduction • Diesel Generators • Heating and • Cooling Thermostat Control
  • 29. Energy time-shift • Refrigeration • Ice Bank Air Conditioning • Storage heating • Smart Domestic Appliances
  • 30. Demand Stimulation • Swimming Pool Heating • Plug In Hybrid Vehicles • H2 production
  • 31. Last bit of Geek Porn!
  • 32. Synergy Module Eirgrid NCC Synergy Module NCC Synergy Synergy Synergy Synergy Module Module Module Module Diesel Refrigeration Ice Bank PIHV Generator
  • 33. Conclusion • Wind power has massive potential • Wreaks havoc on grid • EDM can counter the instability • => Greater use of wind energy
