The main Energy Informatics research for electricity can be divided into the following themes:
Demand Side Management
This usually includes all end-use sectors (households, commercial buildings, industries and transportation). General terms have been discussed popularly are, e.g.: demand response, prosumers, aggregation, Distributed Energy Resources, smart metering and building energy management system.
In general, the energy informatics research for the distribution network mainly relates to the consumption side. The general terms are, e.g., Building-to-Grid, EV-to-Grid, storage, microgrid, grid control.
the generation and transmission are not the main focus in the Energy Informatics domain compared to other themes. The general terms in this theme are, in general, renewable energy resources, large-scale battery.
