In recent years, a lot of energy-smart community demonstration projects are being conducted around the world. The principal concept is the optimization of energy utilization in the whole community not the individuals in order to contribute to the coexistence of CO2 reduction and QOL(Quality of Life). CEMS (Community Energy Management System) is one of the key technologies,which manages power demand and supply appropriately in the community. We developed Community EMS which cooperate with and request demand response to consumer EMS involving HEMS,BEMS, EV-charging management center through “Keihanna Eco-City Next Generation Energy and Social System Demonstration Project ”. CEMS also control community storage battery in order to compensate for the lack of demand response. In this paper we propose the method to improve the effect of demand response and describe the verification through Keihanna Demonstration Project.
