The birth of a EUropean Distributed EnErgy Partnership that will help the largescale implementation of distributed energy resources in Europe (EU-DEEP)

Objective

A group of eight European energy utilities propose an Integrated Project to remove, in five and a half years, most of the technical and non-technical barriers which prevent a massive deployment of distributed energy resources (DER) in Europe. In partnership with Manufacturers, Research Organisations, Professionals, National Agencies and a Bank, they will implement a demand-pull rather than technology-push approach. This new approach will provide five "fast-tracks options" to speed up the large-scale implementation of DER in Europe, by defining five market segments which will benefit from DER solutions, and fostering the R&D required to adapt DER technologies to the demands of these segments. A European Competence Group will be created to exploit commercially, beyond the end of the project, the development of the methodology to create the fast-track options. This development requires a set of iterative R&D tasks by utilities, research laboratories, manufacturers of generator sets, storage and grid connection equipment, and investment bodies to qualify the prospects of the newly defined market segments. This work will be completed by one-year experimental measurements campaigns to gather realistic data on the life cycle costs of the candidate technologies. In order to validate the new demand-pull approach, a minimum of five market segments must be studied in the three market sectors (industrial, commercial and residential) for one or two types of DER demands ("incremental-DER" from existing DER applications, and/or "DER-breakthrough" from the study of disruptive behaviours introduced by new trading mechanisms). Manufacturers should then be in a position to launch industrialisation tasks of the most promising DER solutions. In addition, regulatory bodies will be able to release some of the barriers which still prevent more DER solutions from reaching market applications.
