Suggestion for decentralised flexibility mechanisms

Association of Energy Market Innovators (BNE)

With the energy transition the amount of decentralised produced power and the number of distributed consumers is increasing which is putting pressure on the distribution grid, says the BNE, an association of independent energy suppliers and service firms. The system will therefore need to become more flexible in order to balance supply and demand, the organisation concludes. They suggest a market mechanism (flexibility bonus) that would pay power consumers to use electricity to the benefit of the grid.
