The increase of distributed renewable electricity generators, such as solar cells and wind turbines, requires new energy management systems where real-time measurements and communication between end users, suppliers and utilities are vital. To address this need, we propose a common service architecture that allows houses with renewable energy generation and smart energy devices to plug into a distributed energy management system, integrated with the public power grid. The presented architecture facilitates end-users to optimize their energy consumption, enables power network operators to better balance supply and demand, and creates a platform where new market players (e.g. ESCOs) can easily provide new services. This service architecture has been implemented and is currently evaluated in a field trial with 21 users, of which we present the initial results.
