Local Inclusive Future Energy (LIFE) City Platform
The LIFE project aims to develop a district-scale energy management platform to resolve grid problems while integrating local stakeholder interests in its design and implementation. LIFE is funded with the MOOI 2020 subsidy by RVO.
An energy trading platform for Zuid Oost that alleviates net congestion, and brings about energy savings to the residents.
A user-centric design process of the LIFE platform, that can be replicated and scaled up in other areas
A localized energy market of energy prosumers, i.e. consumers + locally produced and stored energy sources
Digital Twin to simulate economic market for peer-to-peer energy exchange
Socio-economic emulator to simulate behavioral economics and decision-making of prosumers
Local & flexible energy markets, associated new governance structures
Design ethnography for stakeholder engagement
Living Lab framework for local user-centric experiments & iterative design
The LIFE Work Packages
LIFE platform operating system
The inner workings of the platform are translated into easily accessible and comprehensible data visualizations for the end-users, and also provide the run-time environment for the (virtual) trading of energy and flexibility among users
A data-driven digital twin
The digital twin model will be used to simulate and experiment with different system configurations, control strategies, and operational policies for the area-level energy system.
