|Business Model Name||Buildings Flexibility Services|
|Business Model Description||With more variable renewable sources (wind and solar) in the future, the power grid is facing increasing challenge to manage the real time balance between the supply and demand. With advancements in smart sensing and metering, smart appliances, electric vehicles, and energy storage technologies, demand side management of residential buildings can help the grid to improve stability by optimizing flexible loads. Business models that value building flexibility will incentivize this service for grid operators and aggregators.|
|Customer class||Any building with some flexibility assets|
|Mechanism for response||Price Signal|
|Remuneration or compensation||Revenues for providing flexibility|
|Entities and their roles||TSO/DSO: need for flexibility|
Aggregators: pooling flexibility
|Business Model Reference||https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2666792421000469|
|Does the Business Model harness any of these technologies?||Distributed Ledger Technology / Blockchain, Machine learning / Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things - IoT / Smart metering|
|Does the Business Model targets any of these asset classes?||Social Housing, Privately Owned, Rental|

Frequently Asked Questions
We have fund our selves at a crossroads. Buildings energy efficiency is not moving fast enough to meet the Paris Agreement goals. Innovative financial instruments, business models and regulatory frameworks are urgently needed.
We can continue in this direction. Or we can explore a new way forward. The encyclopenergy aims to do just that in a bid to streamline and optimise the way the built environment community shares knowledge.
The enclyponergy aims at creating a comprehensive compendium to support the spread and scale of innovation in financing solutions, business models, and regulatory frameworks to accelerate the transition to a less carbon-intensive built environment.
The project ‘Climate Positive Circular Communities’, short name ARV, is funded by the European Green Deal initiative as an Innovation Action within the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme. The enclycopenergy is a flower germinating from the ARV in order to map the world state of art when it comes to energy efficiency financing, business models and regulatory frameworks. The Green Digital Finance Alliance as an ARV Consortium partner is in the lead of such an effort.
The Encyclopenergy is a crowd-open-sourced encyclopedia of energy efficiency enablers. It is a crowdsourced global catalogue of financing tools, business models, and regulatory frameworks enabling, empowering, and scaling energy efficient solutions for the built environment. It also offers intelligence to list demonstrations and organization working in the field with the hope this will be a boomerang to boost the renovation wave.
Everywhere. Ubiquitus. Onlline. And in your pocket. The encyclopenergy wants to be a practical tool available to all at all time. You can surf it, download it and populate it from anywhere.
The encyclopenergy is still in its infancy. It was kickstarted on March 1st 2022. Help this living knowledge hub to grow, refine and ameliorate so that it can graduate into a useful tool for a climate positive built environment.
