Abstract in another language

Rising and volatile energy prices are forcing production companies to optimize their consumption patterns and reduce carbon emissions to remain competitive. Demand-side management (DSM) or energy flexibility (EF) is a promising option for the active management of electricity demand. With DSM, energy procurement costs can be effectively reduced, for example, by reducing peak loads and taking advantage of volatile energy prices. In addition, renewable energies can be better integrated to reduce carbon emissions while stabilizing the power grid. Although the benefits of DSM for production companies are well known, implementation is not yet widespread. A key barrier is the high requirements of IT systems and the associated effort and complexity involved in setting them up. Companies often lack appropriate IT systems or have historically grown systems that do not allow continuous communication from the machine to the energy market. A variety of different platforms promise solutions to address these challenges. However, when selecting platforms, it is often unclear which aspects and functionalities of a platform are relevant for a company’s specific application. To address this gap, we developed a multi-layer taxonomy of digital platforms for energy-related applications in the industry that includes a general, as well as a more specific data-centric and transaction-centric perspective. We develop, revise, and evaluate our taxonomy using insights from literature and analysis of 46 commercially available platforms or platforms developed through research projects. Based on our taxonomy, we derive implications for research and practice. Our results contribute to the descriptive knowledge of digital platforms in energy-related applications. Our taxonomy enables researchers and practitioners to classify such platforms and make informed decisions about their deployment.
