“Less power waste thanks to smart markets”
Regional smart markets can help lower re-dispatch costs in the German power grid, according to a new study by think tank Agora Energiewende.* Depending on the local conditions, measures such as using more power-to-heat or actively controlling night storage heaters or charging e-cars could help avoid grid congestion, lowering costs for re-dispatch as a result.
