Interaction with external environment

This task force focuses on the requirements of smart solutions enabling interactions between the building and its external environment, including multiple systems interactions.

The task force will investigate three topics:

TOPIC A: Providing flexibility to power grids:
Smart solutions and data interoperability to provide flexibility services to the electricity grid (e.g. smart grid-ready buildings)

TOPIC B: Providing flexibility to District Heating and Cooling grids:
Smart solutions and data interoperability to provide flexibility to the DH&C grids

TOPIC C: Smart building integration into multiple networks:
Smart network integration (sector coupling), dmartness requirements for interactions with building blocks and smart cities, mobility, water and waste networks, Local Energy Communities.

For each topic, a white paper will be collectively produced according to the following schedule:
