HEERHUGOWAARD – The number of future power outages decreases when households are more flexible in their energy use. By connecting smart devices to a smart energy system, the peaks in the electricity grid are reduced, leading to fewer outages. Households want to contribute to such a system, as long as no extra effort is involved. These are the main results of the Dutch smart energy project “EnergieKoplopers” initiated by grid company Alliander and energy retailer Essent.

EDSO for Smart Grids welcomes the prominent focus given in today’s package to customers’ participation, security of supply, flexibility and distribution system needs as a much-needed step-change for redesigning Europe’s electricity markets. However, DSOs will only be able to thrive on these new tasks if regulatory frameworks will create the necessary conditions that would enable them to adapt to the new market realities.

Digitalisation of the electricity system is already underway, and will become even more profound in the decades to come. With the ongoing roll-out of smart meters across Europe, electricity grids will become increasingly smarter and more digital. This new flow of data will not only enhance network management, facilitating the development of new services and markets, but it will also be an opportunity for delivering better services to Europe’s citizens through increased customer empowerment, and more control of their energy consumption.

The four European associations representing electricity distribution system operators, CEDEC, EDSO, EURELECTRIC and GEODE, and ENTSO-E, representing the transmission system operators, teamed up to share their views on how to manage data and information exchanges between system operators. The resulting effort is a joint report that sets out how rules on data management and exchanges represent a precondition to deploying smart grids and unleashes all potential of the demand side of the electricity system. The report also intends to stir up the debate among stakeholders across networks and markets.
