Demand-side flexibility and citizen participation through energy communities are deemed to be the future of our energy system. However, there are many possibilities behind these concepts that offer different opportunities for decarbonising our energy system. Energy cooperatives have experimented with these concepts in different EU projects, putting in place various types of services, offering different values for the grid and benefits for citizens.
During these 2 hours we will clarify the scope of these new services and illustrate them with hands-on experiences. We will deepdive into the success factors as well as the difficulties that our project partners and energy communities are facing in the field when rolling out flexibility services.
