    Abstract

    This paper presents a quantitative data analysis of smart wet appliances in two residential smart grids. The energy consumption patterns and flexibility of 175 smart washing machines and 9 smart dishwashers’ data were analyzed for the whole year (5 min. resolution, monitoring fraction > 90%) on two Dutch smart grid pilots; Jouw Energy Moment (JEM) 2014 and PowerMatching City (PMC) 2012. The research results show annual use of 540 hours of wet appliances for an average household. Besides, 770 hours of flexibility are realized annually thanks to users’ active participation and the energy management systems that were employed. In conclusion, energy demand could be identified as self-consumption for almost half of the smart appliances’ consumption in both pilots (PMC: 47%, JEM: 45%), showing a noticeable consumption shifted towards solar self-consumption.
