Demand side aggregation represents an important opportunity for ancillary services provision due to the potential that the coordinated management of distributed resources has on affecting power systems' operation. In this framework, the Aggregator has a main role and takes on different relationships with the other actors of the power system, usually becoming a mediator between the prosumers and the distribution system operator. The DEMAND project introduces a new point of view in demand side aggregation by proposing a new framework where the Aggregator is no more needed and prosumers can share and combine their flexibility in a new aggregation platform called Virtual Aggregation Environment (VAE). In this paper, an algorithm for the day- ahead estimation of each prosumer's flexibility is presented. The algorithm evaluates various couples of power variation and desired remuneration to send to the VAE for further elaborations. A case study shows how the algorithm works.
