Three-quarters of utilities reported that they are investigating how to make behind-the-meter assets, such as distributed solar, part of their business model. That is because utilities see technology such as renewables combined with storage as key for operational demand response, and also because distributed generation is a growing threat to their near-term business.

In this live studio interview at Asian Utility Week, Peter Nemcek, vice president of research and development at Cybergrid, talks about the interesting results obtained from the e-Badge smart grid project which is an EU-funded FP7 project. Its objective is to propose an optimal pan-European Intelligent Balancing mechanism, which is also able to integrate Virtual Power Plant systems by means of an integrated communication infrastructure that can assist in the management of the electricity transmission and distribution grids in an optimized, controlled and secure manner. The three year project is now in its final year. Source: Liberalising energy data opens market opportunities | Engerati – Transmission and Distribution

Traditionally, power production has followed demand. Due to the growth of renewable power production, it is increasingly becoming lucrative to actively manage demand to profit from fluctuating power prices. Benjamin Bayer reports about first experiences with demand response in the US and explains how the regulatory framework needs to change in Germany.
