Short description of the project contribution
Tapping into potentials for shiftable loads in municipalities and participation approaches for municipal players
For the four workstreams flexibilisation of electricity generation, flexibilisation of consumers, energy efficiency and smart grids, appropriate projects should be identified, assessed and realised for municipal institutions.
The implementation of specific projects should tap into as-yet unexploited synergy potentials at a profit and in the interest of the energy transition.
The findings should be collected in a study that will lead to recommended actions. This enables Dresden to function as a model city for other municipalities.
