A flexibility product for water-heater aggregators on the electricity markets
Intermittent renewable energy, such as solar and wind, bring uncertainty into the grid. To increase their contribution into the energy mix, load management solutions are necessary. In this work, a mean field control of water-heaters is used to provide load flexibility to the grid while keeping the disturbance of the consumption, after the control, as low as possible.

Energy management in hospitals using demand dispatch
In this paper, we present a bi-objective formulation for using renewable energy sources (RESs) in hospitals to minimize costs and dissatisfaction by scheduling activities of hospitals. Since the main goal of the hospital is providing health care services, they will decrease energy costs while maintaining the comfort of patients and surgeons using the proposed model.

Evaluation of the impact of the power production function approximation on the maintenance scheduling
Maintenance planning for hydropower plants is a crucial problem. We evaluate the impact of the HPF formulation on the maintenance scheduling. We compare three approximations: first a convex hull approximation, then a piecewise linear approximation and third, a nonlinear approach using a polynomial function fitted on real data.

Optimal allocation of demand response resources considering the electric transmission network
The growing concern about the environmental impacts caused by energy generation has incentived investment in renewable energies and in demand response (DR), which creates several challenges when operating the grid. Thus, we develop a short-term horizon
model for allocating optimally the DR and generators resources when supplying un-
expected demand considering the network topology.
