Research & Development
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
In this FLEXIBLE study, our focus is primarily on distribution grids since the largest impact of future changes in the electricity networks are to be expected at the LV level. The basic objective of this FLEXIBLE study is to create conditions for integration of small generation and loads instead of just connecting them to the grid. Through an integral assessment of network requirements, dispatch of distributed generation units and demand side management, a more optimal solution can be achieved than simply increasing network capacity and adding more regulating power to meet the growing mi smatch between supply and demand due to co-generation.
