These resources usually refer to energy consumption, locally distributed electricity generation, and energy storage. The building structural mass has an inherent potential either to modify consumption or to be used as a storage medium. In this paper, the energy flexibility potential of a residential building thermal mass for the winter design day is investigated. Various active demand response strategies are assessed using two flexibility indicators: the storage efficiency and storage capacity. Using simulation, it is shown that the available capacity and efficiency associated with active demand response actions depend on thermostat setpoint modulation, demand response event duration, heating system rated power and current consumption.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Residential buildings; Thermal mass; Demand response; Rewnewable energy resources||Other versions:||http://buildingsimulation2019.org/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||The 16th International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA 2019), Rome, Italy, 2-4 September 2019|
