Game Changing Impact Challenges - Infrastructure - Energinet
Stream locationInitiate! Pit
We need to create game changing impacts. The InnoEnergy GCIC are sector and business challenges that have been provided to students. The students will work in teams on the challenges and in this presentation they will present their solution to the business partner. The winning team will be in the Closing Keynote at the Energy Revolution Stage
More electricity production is connected to the local distribution grid and with expected increase in batteries/storage the flows of electricity and utilization of both the transmission and distribution electricity grid are changing. With household batteries, the use of the grid is reduced but with more electrical vehicles the need for increase in distribution grid capacity might be needed to secure charging at all time. At the same time electricity and balancing markets are getting more international and are not necessarily reflecting local capacity situations.
This challenges the existing balancing, financing and planning of infrastructure investments in the distribution and transmission electricity grid. Existing principle is to give transmission system operator responsibility for balancing and procurement of system services and to develop long term grid plans based on the assumption, that the grid must be able to connect and utilize maximum production and support peak consumption in any given area. With a fast changing energy system there is a need to think in new ways to optimize the grid development and supply of necessary balancing services.
Design a concept for use of local resources and demands in international markets and include 1 or more or the questions below:
- What kind of incentives for local consumption or production for optimal utilization of the grid and balancing can be developed?
- How can development of tariff structures support new solutions?
- What kind of cooperation between regulated and commercial parties could create the optimal framework for new business models?
