The energy transition towards the 2050 goals requires more decentralization, sector coupling and digitalization with scalable flexibility platforms playing a major role in this process. Interoperability of those platforms on national and international levels along with standardization is crucial for security of supply and for fostering an economically efficient and coordinated allocation of flexibility.
The aim of DigIPlat is to develop new digital solutions targeting interoperability of flexibility platforms along ICT, economic, or process-related dimensions. To derive these solutions, we test and analyze a unique use case of cross-border and cross-platform coordination of flexibility for redispatch, balancing and intraday markets. Possible welfare benefits of platform interoperability and standardization of flexibility are measured using market and network simulations.
This project has received funding in the framework of the joint programming initiative ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems’ focus initiative Digital Transformation for the Energy Transition, with support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 883973.
