15 March 2014

On March 15th 2014, the DREAM first public deliverable has been published. The reference object model and dictionary contains the proposition about the common DREAM framework.

The DREAM project aims to build and demonstrate an industry-quality reference solution for aggregation-level control and coordination of distributed energy resources (DER), based on commonly available ICT components, standards, and platforms for every actors (DER owners, grid operators, etc…) of the Smart Grids. The approach is a bottom-up one with a direct validation of any distributed decisions by the Distribution System Operators with a clear and rigorous methodology. The end users (DER at large sense) can participate and must be coordinated with network components: their participation can be focus on e- and balancing markets to prepare (plan) and to support (react) the operation of the distribution network in support of the power system;
DREAM is claiming that an ever evolving hierarchy depending on distribution network needs is requested to fully use the agent/autonomic computing ability and avoid the instability between several operating modes.
