GENERALIZED OPERATIONAL FLEXIBILITY FOR INTEGRATING RENEWABLES IN THE DISTRIBUTION GRID
The GOFLEX project will innovate, integrate, further develop and demonstrate a group of electricity smart-grid technologies, enabling the cost-effective use of demand response in distribution grids, increasing the grids’ available adaptation capacity and safely supporting an increasing share of renewable electricity generation.
GOFLEX enables active use of distributed load ﬂexibility sources to provide services for grid operators, balance electricity demand and supply, and optimise energy consumption and production at the local level of electricity trading and distribution systems. The sources of load ﬂexibility include thermal (heating/cooling) and electric storage (electric vehicles charging/ discharging).
A backbone data-services platform offers localised estimation and short-term predictions of market energy demand/generation as well as load ﬂexibility to support effective data-driven decisions for the various stakeholders.
