Energy production has shifted heavily from centralised to decentralised. As part of the energy transition, most of the disruption will happen in distribution network and DSOs has to change the way they manage the distribution network. In the traditional world the electricity was delivered through a passive network but when the electricity is generated more locally, it challenges DSOs and other market participants to develop dynamic network management tools including both market products and technical solutions. The key is to collaborate and find the ways to activate customers to balance the weather-related production when required. This challenges the energy sector to put customers in focus and solve the challenge without affecting too much for daily living. One solution is to utilise smart meters as part of the demand response, which could be used to open the demand response market and attract customers be active players also in the energy market.
