PR4 Business models for flexible production and storage

Current trends and policies are progressing in the direction of an increased share of electricity from renewable sources in the EU electricity system, in particular from intermittent sources such as wind and photovoltaics.


Furthermore, the share of electricity in total energy consumption is likely to increase in the coming years. Finally, there is increasing use of electric appliances in households at varying use through the day. All together, this results in potentially large and sometimes fast variation of both electricity production and consumption – as well as the need to match these – calling for temporary production or storage of electricity or conversion of electricity into other forms in a range of scales for both power and time.

These research questions were the focus for this study:
