COMPILE: GENERALIZED OPERATIONAL FLEXIBILITY FOR INTEGRATING RENEWABLES IN THE DISTRIBUTION GRID
With the technological development and the increasing integration of RES, storage of various energy vectors supported by new organisational measures and business models is used to foster the development of local energy systems and to boost the use of local energy sources.
COMPILE project aims to activate and use Local Energy Systems to support the fast growth of energy production from RES in constrained networks and foster the transition from a centralised system with passive users into a ﬂexible network of active users featuring energy communities.
In COMPILE, we focus on showing the benefit of cooperation through energy communities that will solve current grid problems in a coordinated way, avoiding the costly network reinforcement while leading to an increased RES share. The demo cases in COMPILE are positioned along the spectrum of this passive-/active consumer transition and will show different approaches to coordination of consumers, technology and business models.
Our vision is an interplay of ﬂexible energy community-supported networks with current centralised system, increasing societal benefit with optimised planning. This leads to the more economical use of resources, help local businesses and to decarbonise local areas.
