Grid friendly flexibility in the low voltage networks – learnings from the project leafs

The webinar will focus on key lessons learned from the grid simulations and customer trials in the Austrian project.

Recorded on 04 Dec 19

  • Field Demonstration of different concepts: Grid friendly operation and market services with residential PV-BESS, Community storage system for multiple customers, Monetary incentive schemes for grid friendly behaviour of customers
  • Rollout and scalability analysis: Grid simulations PV, EV, flexibility, storage systems, etc. for about 10.000 low voltage grids (representing the supply area of two Austrian DSOs) to quantify future grid reinforcement requirements
  • End customer perspective: Large-scale survey with more than 14.000 responses to PV, EV, community storage, etc. to assess end customer perspective
