Energy management on a residential level can provide supplementary load shifting exibility for upcoming smart grids, supporting increased energy effciency by aligning load with surplus energy generated from renewables. This paper presents results from the EIT Digital Project HEGRID, in which a multicommodity test-bed has been evaluated in Karlsruhe, Germany. The system architecture is based on the EF-Pi framework (Energy Flexibility Platform and Interface) and integrates different energy carriers (natural gas, electricity, heat). We present the device driver architecture, user interface, simulation capabilities, and energy management through drivers of device categories. Our experiments validate this multi-commodity scenario and its components in a real device test-bed and provide lessons learned from a prototype implementation of the entire stack, thus decoupling hardware-specifc devices through software drivers from energy management.
