Market Access for Smaller Size Intelligent Electricity Generation
The project will provide tools and guidance for investors / owners of renewable energy sources (RES) and Distributed Generation (DG) for finding innovative marketing options and approaches to make their engagement more independent from subsidies or grants.
With this aim, the project will elaborate marketing concepts and technological approaches to help investors and RES owners to sell electricity products generated by DG in a power range of up to several hundred kW.
A special focus is attributed to technologies using RES resources and co-generation. The project will identify and describe pre-conditions for entering electricity exchanges and offering various service products (e.g. minute reserve) and devise action plans on how to achieve the required properties (e.g. by clustering a number of generation units or by combining different technologies). As far as co-generation is conerned, the relationtionship between thermal demand and electricity generation will also be addressed. The application of load- / generation prognoses as well as operation management as tools to tailor to the properties of decentralised “virtual power plants” will be explored.
