2nd Workshop on FLEXIBILITY MARKETS OF THE FUTURE AND TSO-DSO COOPERATION, 13/02/2020. -
2nd Workshop on Flexibility Markets of the Future and TSO-DSO cooperation will take in Brussels netx 13th February. The event is organised by the European Commission in cooperation with ENTSOe, EDSO, CEDEC, Eurelectric & GEODE.
On 24 October 2019 the first workshop on projects that address flexibility markets of the future and TSO-DSO cooperation took place in Brussels. The aim was to discuss the experiences of projects testing the requirements of the Clean Energy Package to create markets for flexibility that will enhance the integration of renewable electricity in the system as well as the active involvement of new participants in those markets at the demand-side to supply services to the system in an efficient and secure way. The more than 20 presentations showed that there are different ways to approach flexibility markets. This is reflected in the multiplicity of existing platforms, the difference in functionalities and the size of the incorporated flexibility (e.g. focus on large assets or also household appliances). It was widely agreed that the goal is not to establish a single data exchange platform but to ensure interoperability at all levels, based on open API’s.
After the projects presented themselves in October 2019, the focus of the second edition of the workshop is on discussion. In each session a presenters will briefly elaborate their views on the questions for debate, but the aim is that the discussion will be interactive with as many projects/platforms/parties involved.
