How the aggregator works
The aggregator is a cloud-based solution for administrating and controlling a large pool of heat pumps. The aim is to attain better prices or other benefits by trading energy on the different electricity markets such as day-ahead or intraday.
The aggregator collects and includes data from weather and price forecasts in order to assess when it is most profitable to move energy consumption. Overall information and historical data are also collected to ensure optimisation of the pool.
Data is also collected from the heat pumps individually. Their respective requirements and comfort settings such as room temperature, allowable temperature, and prioritization of domestic water heating set by the user are also taken into account to ensure maximum comfort.
