A functioning market and an effective network regulation are the keys for a successful energy transition.
To achieve a functioning European energy market, an even tighter cooperation between transmission network operators in the areas of planning, system security, and market integration is necessary.
The trends of digitalization and decentralization pose great challenges for distribution system operators and municipal utilities, but also creates opportunities for sustainable positioning.
Through decentralization and digitalization, production and demand will inevitably be interconnected.
Multilateral regional cooperative projects can only be successfully and economically realized through a neutral, efficient, methodical, and energy-industry-competent project manager.
The implementation of legal and regulatory requirements demand for flexible business processes and efficient IT systems.
The core objective of the project was the development of a feasibility study providing recommendations for the establishment of the Nordic Regional Coordination Security Initiative (Nordic RSCI). E-Bridge supported the TSO working group in terms of project management, content support and drafting the report. E-Bridge’s consultants were able to take advantage of their long-term expertise and experience with other TSO multi-client projects in particular with the establishment of an RSCI. The report was the decision basis for the implementation of a joint office of Nordic TSOs to foster operational coordination in the Nordic electricity system.
ENTSO-E TSOs have decided to implement and enforce a higher level of coordination among the TSOs for operating the European transmission system as an answer…
Germany 2016The strategic tandem project pursues the primary goal of a sustainable positioning of a large distribution network operator. Based on a jointly formed opinion of the future developments of network usage, regionally specific scenarios for 2035 are developed. The effects of the modified load- or feed-in scenarios on the network infrastructure are analysed and necessary further developments of network planning- and network operation principles are determined. Based on these results, the resilience of current business models with regard to future demands is evaluated. There will be new roles and functions, new business models will be evaluated and from there, a long-term strategy is developed.
Due to the energy transition and the changes it has caused for distribution network planning and operation, a sustainable strategic positioning for distribution system operators is of great importance. In this context, future requirements of distribution networks, possibilities of technical changes, as well as prospective agent- and role allocations must…
