Abstract

This work investigates the effectiveness of Collective intelligence (CI) in demand side management (DSM) in urban areas to cope with extreme climate events. CI is a form of distributed intelligence that emerges in collaborative problem solving and decision making. It is used in a simulation platform to control the energy performance of buildings in an urban area in Stockholm, through developing CI-DSM and setting certain adaptation measures, including phase shifting in HVAC systems and building appliances. CI-DSM is developed based on a simple communication strategy among buildings, using forward (1) and backward (0) signals, corresponding to applying and disapplying the adaptation measures. The performance of CI-DSM is simulated for... (More)

This work investigates the effectiveness of Collective intelligence (CI) in demand side management (DSM) in urban areas to cope with extreme climate events. CI is a form of distributed intelligence that emerges in collaborative problem solving and decision making. It is used in a simulation platform to control the energy performance of buildings in an urban area in Stockholm, through developing CI-DSM and setting certain adaptation measures, including phase shifting in HVAC systems and building appliances. CI-DSM is developed based on a simple communication strategy among buildings, using forward (1) and backward (0) signals, corresponding to applying and disapplying the adaptation measures. The performance of CI-DSM is simulated for three climate scenarios representing typical, extreme cold and extreme warm years in Stockholm. According to the results, CI-DSM increases the autonomy and agility of the system in responding to climate shocks without the need for computationally extensive central decision making systems. CI-DSM helps to gradually and effectively decrease the energy demand and absorb the shock during extreme climate events.
