Three phases to flexible grid operations

1. Consulting and enabling:

  • Consulting to define the most suitable Demand Response business model, product and operating model
  • Selective support and training of the grid operator organization: acquisition of customers to participate in Demand Response, technical workshops with participants to analyze the individual Demand Response potential, support in drawing up proposals
  • Integration of Demand Response processes into the grid operator’s existing business process landscape (via standardized interfaces)
  • Depending on the type of operating model, also training of grid operator operations personnel in using Entelios Software Suite™.

 

2. Set-up and onboarding:

  • Onboarding of the participants to the Entelios Network Operations Center (NOC) via a pre-configured E-Box™ on the participant’s premises (including logistics, installation, testing of the E-Box™)
  • Technical tests (live switching events) to check connection and understand responsiveness of individual flexibility assets (gradients, continuity, etc.), validation of identified Demand Response potential
  • Pre-qualification according to the requirements of the TSOs
  • Set-up of required Demand Response infrastructure (according to selected operating model)

 

3. Operations and scaling:

  • Aggregation and intelligent management of the grid operator’s flexibility pool
  • Execution of switching events (NOC operations)
  • Information for reporting, energy logistics, billing / reimbursement
  • Continuous check for opportunities to include additional flexibility assets
