Abstract

The beverage industry is a typical food processing industry, accounts for significant energy consumption, and has flexible demands. However, the deployment of energy flexibility in the beverage industry is complex and challenging. Furthermore, activation of energy flexibility from the whole brewery industry is necessary to ensure grid stability. Therefore, this paper assesses the energy flexibility potential of Denmark's brewery sector based on a multi-agent-based simulation. 239 individual brewery facilities are simulated, and each facility, as an agent, can interact with the energy system market and make decisions based on its underlying parameters and operational restrictions. The results show that the Danish breweries could save 1.56 % of electricity costs annually while maintaining operational security and reducing approximately 1745 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Furthermore, medium-size breweries could obtain higher relative benefits by providing energy flexibility, especially those producing lager and ale. The result also shows that the breweries' relative saving potential is electricity market-dependent.
