The developed energy management and decision support systems for energy positive neighbourhoods will be validated in two demonstration field tests in Helsinki, Finland and Langenfeld, Germany. Furthermore, a complementary simulation based virtual demonstration study will be carried out for tor the municipality of Asparrena, Spain. Within the frame of the demonstration tests, the benefits and costs of the new energy management and decision support systems for energy positive neighbourhoods will be analysed.
The three different demonstration sites are located in different climate zones and are characterized by different energy generation and consumption habits of the consumers. The research results will be exchanged between the pilot sites and the corresponding stakeholders.
