The volatility of renewables will increase the need for flexibility, and therefore new services and technologies, alongside additional grid reinforcements. Since most of the renewable capacity (up to 90%) is connected at DSO level, major infrastructure investments are needed. Wherever new services (storage, demand response, etc.) are more cost-efficient and can provide the necessary security and quality of supply, these solutions should be implemented. The needed (financial) incentives to make use of these services should be in place.
