Short description of the project contribution
Use of flexibility potentials by means of new flexibility platform
Within the scope of the ‘Innovative Process Platform’ sub-project, a flexibility platform is developed to integrate the additional flexibility potentials in the redispatch process. The integration of these installations should be voluntary and free of discrimination.
To that end, a web platform should be developed where installation operators, marketers or aggregators can offer their flexibility for specific locations or areas and can be acquired by system operators in need of redispatch.
The concept development involves the design of the web platform, the development of a prequalification procedure, the definition of products, the determination of the sequence for the bidding process, the communication of the flexibility potential incl. coordination between grid levels, the call process as well as invoicing matters.
Stadtwerke Jena wants to participate in the project by offering flexibility, for instance by means of a battery storage project, as well as by engaging in discussion or developing concepts.
