E-distribuzione intends to demonstrate that the technologies that will be developed or improved within the EU-SysFlex project allow a distribution system operator to acquire total autonomy in the control of distributed resources connected to its own network. Currently, the distribution networks in Italy are characterized by a high penetration of distributed generation. In 2017, about… » read more

The concepts for enhancing system flexibility are tested in seven European large-scale demonstrators. EU-SysFlex focuses on improving flexibility and system services to address technical challenges arising from the continuously increasing share of renewable energy resources (RES) in our electricity supply. The concepts for enhancing system flexibility are tested in seven European large-scale demonstrators. Concepts and… » read more

  Germany’s law demands a new process to integrate renewable energy resources in the redispatch process for solving congestion in the transmission and distribution grids. Such a process is already being tested by innogy and MITNETZ STROM in the German demonstrator of EU-SysFlex.   A change in the German law, including significant modifications related to… » read more

Three EU-SysFlex demonstrators located in Germany, Italy and Finland enable flexibility provision from the distribution grid to the transmission grid and thereby improve the cooperation of distribution and transmission system operators. EU-SysFlex focuses on improving flexibility and system services to address technical challenges arising from the continuously increasing share of renewable energy resources in our… » read more

  Customer should be the one deciding who, how and when their flexibility and data can be used. Easy market and data access will be designed to avoid customer lock-in to a single system operator, to a single flexibility service or to a single market platform. May 2019 has seen quite some spot-on discussions in… » read more

In a future electricity system with high share of renewable energies, system operators will need to rethink the way they procure flexibility, driven by their actual needs on the one hand and a low-complexity process for flexibility providers on the other hand. The needs of the future electricity system – such as system adequacy, frequency… » read more

Developing the needed flexibility will require economic incentives provided by well-functioning electricity markets. The objective is to reward the right flavour of flexibility at the right time and on the right place. The 2030 power system will be very different and complex when integrating 50% of RES. The current European power generation accounts for around… » read more

The overall aim of the EU-SysFlex project is to provide a roadmap for Europe in meeting the challenge of integrating 50% renewables by 2030. Europe has ambitious plans to become greener and more decarbonized by increasing levels of renewable energy and implementing energy efficiency measures. Today, electrical energy accounts for approximately 20% of energy consumption… » read more
