Introduction of Laboratory
Feasibility study on demand response in Japan:
Power systems contain a mechanism to maintain a balance between supply and demand. In the future, a large amount of renewable energy resources such as solar power and wind power generation will be connected to the power system, Thus, it is necessary to prepare additional resources to maintain this balance, such as energy storage and demand-side resources, because predicting the output of variable generators is very difficult. The demand response should maintain a balance between the supply and demand using the demand-side resources.
My research includes overseas case surveys, the study of technical potential applications in Japan, and a feasibility study from an economic viewpoint.
