Webinar: Integrating renewables and enabling flexibility of households and buildings – IEA DSM Task 17
About the webinar
Demand response is seen as a measure to increase the power system flexibility. Recent developments from research projects and pilots pave the way to large scale deployment and commercialization. This webinar will present the potentials of different DR technologies and different national and international approaches and discusses how flexibility of demand is making its way into markets and network operation. IEA-DSM Task 17 addresses the current role and potential of flexibility in electricity demand and supply of systems of energy consuming/producing processes in buildings (residential and commercial) equipped with DER (Electric Vehicles, PV, storage, heat pumps, …) and their impacts on the grid and markets.
