|Abstract:||The awareness of the greenhousegas effect and rising energy prices lead to initiatives to improve energy efﬁciency. These initiatives range from micro-generation, energy storage and efﬁcient appliances to controllers with optimization objectives. Although these technologies are promising, their introduction may rise further questions. The implementation of such initiatives may have a severe impact on the electricity infrastructure. If several of these initiatives are introduced in a combined way, it is difﬁcult to analyse their overall impact.
In this paper a model is deﬁned and a developed simulator is described to analyse the impact of different combinations
of micro-generators, energy buffers, appliances and control algorithms on the energy efﬁciency, both within the house and on larger scale. The simulator is easily adaptable to new types of micro-generators, controllers and other supported devices. Simulation of two case studies with the simulator shows that the achieved results are promising.
