In broad terms, Demand Response refers to the operational, regulatory and technical framework for inducing changes in the power demand of buildings or settlements during the day. Time of Use (ToU) pricing can be vital to leverage advancements in building or district energy management systems to shift loads, exploit storage capabilities, increase renewable energy penetration and ultimately relief stress from the grid. This is an important feature of the smart grid and a step closer to the necessary open and transparent market framework according to which energy consumption costs reflect actual costs of production, transmission, distribution, infrastructure maintenance and upgrade etc. In this paper Neural Network power predictions are performed and a genetic algorithm based framework for energy management in a group of buildings is developed and tested on real data.According to the results ToU pricing could be exploited by the industry using ANN based day ahead prediction to perform load shifting and minimize associated costs.
