Future Power Grids are imagined to turn into an "Internet of Energies" with intelligent distributed control of a vast amount of controllable consuming and producing devices. This asks for advanced information systems to support the evolution to extended demand-response grid operations impacted by interactive communication control between different stakeholders and demands for high power quality. The proposed Energy Consumption Control platform aims to optimize the power grid by balancing rising and declining consumption demands against the production capacity over volume and time. A mechanisms is proposed to predict and control the energy consumption applying a time-shifted consumption pattern to electronically controllable devices either in form of device usage as passive storage or with re-scheduling of the consumption. The prime balancing trigger is the actual status of the distribution grid and not simply pricing signals.
