Launch of the report on Flexibility for the energy transition: a toolbox for electricity and gas DSOs
Join us for the launch event where we will present our joint report – on Electricity and Gas Flexibility – providing a holistic approach on how DSOs can use flexibility and thus contribute to the transition towards decarbonisation, and a set of solutions enabling DSOs for operating grids in a cost-efficient way. The report offers a sound overview to policy makers on how the regulatory framework should be adapted to facilitate and reward the use of flexibility by DSOs and other stakeholders.
The report also brings forward solutions for flexibility issues of DSOs, technologies available to get the needed flexibility services to system operators, together with alternative ways to acquire these services.
This event will take place on 27 February 2018, from 11.00 to 13.00, followed by a Networking Lunch
Venue: The Office, rue d'Arlon 80, Brussels
