Innovations and challenges of the energy transition in smart city districts
Changing the energy supply system to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is a huge challenge on many different levels. In the urban environment, district level solutions for heat and power supply offer a multitude of improvements when it comes to integrating renewable energy sources, reducing energy prices for customers, and reducing the impact of renewable energies on the power grid. These goals can be achieved by managing the local energy systems, optimize schedules for costs, CO2 emissions, and wear. Furthermore, the system can be used to inform customers to make better decisions about their consumption.This paper describes a software system architecture design for a district energy management system. The focus lies on managing diverse energy systems within an urban neighbourhood while providing information to interested parties to manage the system or to provide further services. It is shown that a variety of different energy systems can be integrated using Internet of Things and cloud technology to optimize the system operation
