Energy Revolution Europe

Energy Revolution implies a more flexible grid. New tech to tuckle that challenge has been developed and is continuously under development. The new role of TSOs and DSOs and their relationship with aggregation is focused on. From microgrid experiences to upcoming virtual power plants and from prosumers and aggregators to large scale renewables or conventional generators living together in the same ecosystem Energy Revolution represents a natural link with the existing focus on renewable integration and energy storage. The focus on innovation and flexibility shedding light on the renewable energy sources of the future will play a prominent role in the track.

The consumer as key resource to bridge the gap between renewables and system stability

Customers are shaping the energy system of the future by transforming into prosumers through the increase of the number of decentralized energy resources. These customers have a new focus and different needs. They impact the grid stability and our future energy supply that should be intelligently managed to integrate them efficiently in to the energy system. To allow this, utilities and device manufacturers have to meet new types of customer needs, finance the development and continuous management: new business models have to be created where all stakeholders can benefit.

Introducing Energy Flexibility

Introducing Energy Flexibility Interface (EFI) Next to the business value of energy flexibility, there is a strong need for flexible use of energy flexibility. Flexibility should be usable in different current and future scenarios; especially end-users with flexible energy-equipment must have freedom of choice to select or switch between energy service providers. Energy system will require changes in the way energy-flexibility is utilized. Applicable open standards for flexible utilization of flexibility will add robustness various usage scenarios.
