MARKET ENABLING INTERFACE TO UNLOCK FLEXIBILITY SOLUTIONS FOR COST-EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF SMARTER DISTRIBUTION GRIDS

Deliverables

Coordination with EU-funded projects, Participatory Processes and training

The aim of this deliverable is to analyse together policy relevant issues and obstacles for novel initiatives in terms of regulation, business models, data management and consumer engagement in order to foster knowledge exchange and dissemination. The deliverable refers to task 11.3.

Identification of relevant market mechanisms for the procurement of flexibility needs and grid services

The aim of this deliverable is to describe appropriate market mechanisms for the procurement of different flexibility services. The deliverable will provide input to T2.2 for definition of the BUCs and to T2.4 for the alignment of the platform specifications and the selected market mechanisms. The deliverable refers to task 5.1.

Characterisation of current network regulation and market rules that will shape future markets

The aim of this deliverable is to identify the relevant policy and regulatory initiatives and proposals, both at EU and national level that may have a significant impact on the long-term evolution of the EU system, considering The Clean Energy Package contents, the Integrated National Energy and Climate plans. This task will analyse in detail at least 5 EU target countries (Portugal, Germany, Poland, Spain, and Belgium) showing a wide range of grid and market contexts, as well as other relevant initiatives and best practices identified for other European countries. The information gathered and processed will be used in DEMOs. The deliverable refers to task 1.1.

Flexibility Toolbox

The aim of this deliverable is to identify the most promising relevant technologies to group them according to their attributes, (flexibility at short, medium or long term; installation at customer, distribution and transmission level). As a result, the task will provide a toolbox with the main attributes of each technology and systems for different locations and flexibility needs to be identified by the relevant DSOs. The deliverable refers to task 3.1.

Business Use Cases to unlock flexibility service provision

The aim of this deliverable is to work on the definition of an open set of business use cases, to be demonstrated in WP7, WP8 and WP9. The business use cases will use a role model that will amongst others, include the different roles of DSOs, notably as neutral market facilitators, data managers and third-party relationship manager, particularly in their relations with market players, TSOs and consumers. The deliverable refers to task 2.2.

Mapping of research and demonstration initiatives on future electricity grids and markets

The aim of this deliverable is to identify the relevant initiatives, assess their available outcomes and obtain the relevant information for being used in the construction of a common future vision, participating in the different working groups of the BRIDGE initiative. The deliverable refers to task 1.2.

Definition KPI for DEMOs

The aim of this deliverable is to define some specific KPIs for the project's DEMOs and to provide regular pre-evaluation of the DEMOs activities based on these KPIs, in prevision of T7.3, T8.3 and T9.3. The deliverable refers to task 6.2.

Challenges and opportunities for electricity grids and markets

The aim of this deliverable is to collect the inputs from the previous two tasks in order to define a long-term visions beyond 2030 characterizing the challenges and opportunities of distribution grids and electricity markets (technologies, stakeholders, business models, regulation, market design) in a decentralized, decarbonized and digitalized power system. This challenges will be taken into account in the DEMOs to implement those elements aligned with them. The deliverable refers to task 1.2.

Workshops / Training sessions

The aim of this deliverable is to gather the actions carried out in workshops or in project training sessions to disseminate the project results. The deliverable refers to task 11.1.

Web site creation

The aim of this deliverable is to create a specific website for the project to collect all communication actions to show the results using several tools adapted for its target groups, languages and the use of appropriate channels communication. The deliverable refers to task 11.2.
