WATCH: Korleis kan fleksibilitet handtere utfordringar i distribusjonsnettet (How can flexibility handle challenges in the distribution network) - Norwegian language
In this presentation, Per-Oddvar Osland discusses how customer flexibility can contribute to solving challenges related to the increased pressure on the power grid, such as power peaks. The presentation will be held in Norwegian language.
Please note that the presentation will be held in Norwegian language.

Electrification of society leads to an increase in energy consumption and power output. For the distribution network, power peaks are the biggest challenge, this leads to reduced voltage quality, bottlenecks in the network and a weakened ability to handle fault situations. Historically, this has been solved by building more networks, but this is not economically sustainable. Here, flexibility can become an important tool in the future. Flexibility is the customers' ability and willingness to adapt consumption/production to take account of demanding situations in network operations. The hypothesis is that flexibility helps to cut power peaks, which means that one can avoid or postpone network investments. For several years, Glitre Nett has worked with analyzes and piloting to investigate how flexibility can contribute to handling challenges in the distribution network. In this presentation, we look at the results of this work.
