Upcoming Events

InterFlex Community Meeting 2019 – Market Design Recommendations For a Local Flexibility Market @ Webinar
May 23 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

InterFlex explores the use of local flexibility for DSO needs through four demonstrators and shares the experience gained and the challenges encountered in establishing market models for local flexibility procurement. The webinar will present both integrated and market approaches detailing the limits and business opportunities, as well as three types of mechanisms to activate flexibilities for the DSO. The webinar will provide some thoughts on the value of the flexibility and how it is shared among stakeholders. InterFlex investigates on one hand the most profitable solutions that maximize profit for the whole community and, on the other hand, kick-starter approaches where the cost of flexibility is equal or greater than the cost of traditional solutions.

A special advisor, James Gallagher, will share his views on local energy markets and his feedback on InterFlex based on his experience as New York State Smart Grid Consortium (NYSSGC) Executive Director.
