Factsheet: Adding flexibility to our energy markets

Sim4Blocks will be producing a series of factsheets explaining some of the main issues surrounding energy flexibility and demand response in Europe.

Sim4Blocks has published an informative and fun factsheet to highlight some of the progress that is currently being made, results that have been found and what lies ahead for Sim4Blocks. The factsheet, the first of a number of factsheets that will explain the current progress of the project, is titled, “Adding flexibility to our energy markets”. A picture of the current status of demand response in Europe is presented, as well as the barriers and challenges that Sim4Blocks has identified when looking at the feasibility of integrating flexible energy services in six countries: France, Belgium, UK, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland. The factsheet also highlights the next stage of the project based on these results, which will involve finding suitable business models to help implement demand response in the right markets. There will be more factsheets coming your way, so keep your eyes peeled on the website! (
