Flexibility

Ability and willingness of power prosumers to adapt their power demand and production

The energy transition is inevitable and electric supply companies must respond to the massive penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs), electric vehicles and growing demand resulting from a decarbonised economy.The traditional passive management of Low Voltage (LV) networks is not enough any longer. A new model is required in order to manage bidirectional energy flows, supply electricity to consumers that also produce energy and adjust energy demand and storage to intermittent renewable generation. In this new scenario of flexibility, supply companies take an active part in the electric power management, adopting the new role of Distribution System Operators (DSOs). They need tools that allow them an active and flexible real-time management of their grids.

Where is ARIADNA Grid?

Smart Energy System
With the distribution network under increasing congestion as a result of growing demand, the integration of DER and the massive penetration of electric vehicles, the risk of supply interruption is increasing, which may lead to financial penalties for DSOs. The traditional way to expand the networks is expensive and will imply an increase on electricity bills. As the role of DSO is increasingly demanding, ARIADNA Grid helps utilities to be active agents in the energy decarbonisation, providing digital solutions to adapt existing distribution grids to new flexible market frameworks allowing to:
