Abstract: The purpose of this work is to provide an insight for a possible methodology to implement demand response strategies at a city scale. The objective is to determine a range of values for the energy and power that can be made available through the large deployment of a residential energy management system. This work can help the distribution system operator to assess the impact of the usage of such technology at the grid level. The paper describes a methodology that identifies the start of operation cycles of appliances and other loads on a given general load diagram, enabling the simulation of load shifting caused by the operation of residential energy management systems. A simulation of an hypothetical 20% deployment of a residential energy management system on the city of Coimbra in Portugal, was performed. The results show the release of almost 3% of the demand on periods of higher price, but also the occurrence of a pronounced peak during the night period, an occurrence which may need to be dealt with, and for which some solutions are proposed.
