Watch the 'Local flexibility in electricity grids - challenges and solutions' here!
In this webinar we looked at flexibility challenges in the local electricity grids, potential solutions to these challenges, as well as features and implications of the regulatory framework that applies to the sector. Watch it here!
The transition to the low-carbon society requires profound changes in the energy system including fundamental changes in electricity generation, such as an increase in distributed RES generation, and in electricity consumption, e.g. via electrification. Distribution networks are heavily affected by distributed generation and changes in load patterns, and the distribution system operators’ (DSO) ability to accommodate and handle these changes is essential. In this seminar we look at flexibility challenges in the local electricity grids, potential solutions to these challenges, as well as features and implications of the regulatory framework that applies to the sector.
