In this paper, we present a novel distributed framework for real time management and co-simulation of Demand Response (DR) in smart grids. Our solution provides a (near-) real-time co-simulation platform to validate new DR-policies exploiting Internet-of-Things approach performing software-in-the-loop. Hence, the behavior of real-world power systems can be emulated in a very realistic way and different DR-policies can be easily deployed and/or replaced in a plug-and-play fashion, without affecting the rest of the framework. In addition, our solution integrates real internet-connected smart devices deployed at customer premises and along the Smart Grid to retrieve energy information and send actuation commands. Thus, the framework is also ready to manage DR in a real-world Smart Grid. This is demonstrated on a realistic smart grid with a test case DR-policy.
