The electrical energy system is transitioning in the way that electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed. Due to these changes, system operators are faced with various challenges (technical, ICT, regulatory and economic) to accommodate new technologies due to the drive toward modern power systems. However, these changes have also allowed for the increased opportunity for system development and the inclusion of new market players. Flexibility will provide network operators (together with other stakeholders such as prosumers, aggregators, etc.) with the possibly to increase the stability of the electrical system and ensure the safe, secure and reliably of supply. Stakeholder interaction is key to facilitate and enable the integration and utilization of flexibility in future power systems. Furthermore, flexibility has traditionally been utilised in the operation stage, for balancing power flows, solve congestions, maintain stability; now, the next level of flexibility can be defined and deployed since the power system planning stage, being integrated into procedures for long-term planning and correspondent market mechanisms for procuring and adequately reward the flexibility providers also in terms of resilience increase.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
- Engage in discussion and collaboration to address the topics related to flexibility and power system resilience
- Share experiences and lessons learned based on the outcomes of various pilot projects related to stakeholder interaction
- Share best practices on the topic of “Flexibility for resilience” in integrated systems, through collaboration.
- The information collected from the workshop will be incorporated into dissemination material (policy briefs, discussion paper, etc)
