Project 10: Enable a Fair Deal to All Consumers through a Local Flexibility Market

The introduction of solar production and high power demanding loads, such as charging systems for electric vehicles, will in many areas represent a challenge for the existing grid and potentially cause damage to grid components.

Without new solutions, local districts will be facing costly grid reinforcements within the next few years. As such, flexibility will become as valuable as energy itself and will become its own emerging market.

+CityxChange will explore this emerging market and the value of flexibility over generation. Through the Limerick and Trondheim DPEBs, the potential and value for that flexibility will be explored as well as the mechanisms for doing so.
