Impact assessment of AD on electricity systems

In WP6 the impact of Active Demand on electricity systems will be assessed and quantified. Moreover, overall project conclusions will be drawn.
In detail, this includes to quantify potential flexibilities and to give a realistic view on what services can be provided to ensure system performance and stability. Besides, the economic benefits of Active Demand for the key stakeholders which are consumers, Distribution System Operators and aggregators, will be evaluated and quantified, which allows to identify the most relevant regulatory barriers to the development of Active Demand from the perspective of stakeholders. Furthermore, the framework for a privacy and data protection impact assessment (PIA) for generic Active Demand systems will be finalised. Finally, the results achieved in the whole project will be consolidated and the overall conclusions and recommendations will be elaborated.
Leader: RWE
Participants: Comillas, Enel Distribuzione, Entelios, ERDF, FEEM, Iberdrola, TNO

Objectives

The objectives of WP6 are the identification and quantification of flexibilities based on Active Demand with industrial, commercial and residential
consumers, the sssessment of the quantitative impact of Active Demand on system performance and stability with focus on MV and LV
grids, the assessment of economic benefits of Active Demand for the key stakeholders, the provision of a framework for data security and data protection and the elaboration of overall project conclusions.

Planned outcomes

The planned outcomes are a scenario-based report on the flexibilities Active Demand might offer to the electricity system, a report on Active Demand based system services, a report on the  economic benefits of Active Demand for stakeholders, a report on privacy and data protection impact assessment, and a consolidated report on the key ADVANCED conclusions. The quantification and pre-validation of flexibilities resulting out of Active Demand is ADVANCED Milestone no. 3.
