Abstract: The smart grid paradigm implies flexible demand
and/or energy storage in order to cope with the
stochastic behaviour of renewable energy sources.
The building stock is often put forward as a
potential supplier of flexibility services through
demand side management (DSM) and distributed
energy storage, partly as thermal energy. This
paper presents a bottom-up approach for the
quantification of this flexibility service in the form
of cost functions. The cost functions are computed
from the solution of optimal control problems
with low-order models. The method is generic
and can be applied to heating, ventilation and air-
conditioning (HVAC) services, thermal energy
storage (TES) and local electricity production.
