 In order to reduce the energy consumption and the environmental footprint of the residential sector, the use of renewable energy sources seems to be an interesting option. However, the intermittent nature of these sources necessitates the installation of a Solar Home Energy Management System (SHEMS) that would ensure both the management of the energy flows and the optimization of the energy demand satisfaction through on-site photovoltaic production of electricity. Regarding the relative incompatibility of photovoltaic production and residential energy consumption profiles, it has been practically demonstrated that the integration of a demand response strategy in the SHEMS system made it possible to adapt the consumption profile to the photovoltaic production profile by shifting the running of the controllable loads to periods of high energy production. This demand management (DR) increases the direct consumption of the PV production by 22%, reduces the energy exchanges with the network and improves, at the same time, the satisfaction rate of the demand by 14%.
