Experiences

EIPGRID has been offering DR(Demand Response) based energy portfolio management services globally with proven references in S.Korea, Japan, Thailand and Malaysia.

Here are the case of global projects conducted by EIPGRID. We’ve picked some of the representative case studies to show powerful & competitive-edge and technology.

THAILAND - Provincial Electricity Authority
Business Application : Demand Response, Peak-cut

Background & Objective

To design an information technology for automated demand response (ADR) architecture of PEA and support the incentive-based demand response program such as CPP, EMDR, IR and DLC based on the DRMS that is covered for Direct Load Control, Smart Home Resource(Load) management, Smart Building Resource(Load) management, we have offred PEA purpose oriented DR resource management system.

The following are the objectives of this project.

  1. Developing & customizing Thailand(PEA) electricity market oriented DR resource management system and do EPCC load connected devices on demonstration sites
  2. Verifying DR program(CPP, EMDR, IR and DLC) based DR real time DR resource management
  3. Interfacing with PEA MDMS to utilize DR resources
Result (On-going)
  1. Delivered OpenADR2.0 based DR resource management system
  2. Delivered DR resource management-supporting devices (Power meter, Gateways)
  3. Delivered DR resource operating guide

THAILAND - MEA (Metropolitan Electricity Authority)
Business Application: Demand Response

Background & Objective

In order to establish a DR market in Bangkok, it was necessary to develop and verify a benchmarking-based system for market design and operation verification. With EIPGRID’s customized references based on DR market operating rules by country and know-how, the project was expected to deliver stable resource operation and management for Thailand’s Metropolitan Electricity Authority.


The main objective of this project was to verify the DR operation/management system in order to verify participation/operation in Thailand's DR market in the Bangkok area.

<Utility-level network infrastructure and DRMS platform modules>

Result

Developed a Demand Response Management System for Thailand MEA and tested OpenADR 2.0b based DR system for the Bangkok region.


  • Understanding the MEA's DR market and designing and verifying the DR system
  • Verified the OpenADR 2.0b communication-based DR operation
  • Designed and verified the DR event creation/implementation/operation structure
