The impact and flexibility of PV based customers 58° North and Beyond : results from the FlexNett project

Abstract

This report is developed within FlexNett project (2015-2018) and summarises the results from the demonstration sites focusing on flexible prosumers, located both at NTE Nett and the municipality of Hvaler.

FlexNett project aimed to contribute to increased flexibility in the future smart distribution grid by demonstration and verification of technical and market-based solutions for flexibility on different grid levels and for different stakeholders.

For this report the main focus has been to investigate the increased flexibility of active customers in the interplay between consumption, generation and energy storage, contributing to a more efficient use of energy, reduced costs and new services. In the distribution grid by locating energy storages in substations to reduce peak loads, improve the utilization of existing grid capacity, reduce coincident peak load and postpone the grid investments.
