Demand side management is one of the novel techniques enabled by introducing ICT in the distribution grid. Controllable assets and energy buffers make it possible to maintain a properly functioning grid, improve the efficiency of the grid and prolong the current grid infrastructure. This work describes the development and techniques of a Home Energy Controller (HEC), located in a building. The HEC is a system that controls (smart) appliances in a building to exploit local optimization potential. Furthermore can it offer flexibility to a (DSO owned) Smart Operator to maintain a properly functioning grid. The paper describes the requirements of the system and provides a system design for the HEC.
