Blog
On a sunny Friday afternoon, I found myself pondering fast-acting ancillary services and the barriers they face. Since I’m sure most other normal people also think about such things, I decided to share some of my musings on the topic. Starting with the ‘basics’ – we know having more renewables on the grid and the...
Can local energy communities and DSO flexibility co-exist?
Blog
These are two hot topics that have currently been making headlines across the industry.
