"Flexibility" is one of the buzz words related to the debate on the integration of renewables. It's clear that in the transition to a decentralised energy system based on renewable resources, flexibility services and digital technologies will play a major role. The horizon 2020 project FLEXcoop released a report providing an overview of possible flexibility-based services using residential equipment control. The report is illustrated with real experiences of two cooperative actors, Energie Samen (NL) and Som Energia (ES) who together with their members experimented with these new services. Som Energia is also involved in the REScoop VPP project.
Take a look at this comprehensive report and explore how demand-side flexibility services and digitalisation may support an (even) more dynamic energy grid. Bringing along new possibilities for new actors, these services and technologies may enable cooperatives and citizen energy communities to keep on being the pioneers of the energy transition!
