Transactive Energy is a term that’s emerged in the last years, but what does it actually mean, how is it emerging, and what does it mean for distribution networks? In this episode of Talking New Energy, host Jon Slowe is joined by Gerben van den Berg, Senior Consultant in Strategy and Corporate Development for Alliander, a distributer of gas, electricity and heat in the Netherlands and Germany; and Delta-EE expert Jeremy Harrison, who leads our Local Energy System research.

Climate change is rising up organisations' agendas, and a good example of this is cities declaring climate emergencies and net-zero or carbon neutrality goals. Targets, visions and aspirations are great, but they need to be backed up with a clear strategy, plan and action. In this episode, we’re delving into cities and the growing number of net-zero declarations, looking at what’s actually going on, and what we can expect to see in the next years. On this episode of Talking New Energy, host Jon Slowe is joined by Sandra Fives, CEO and Co-Founder at Urbanomy, a subsidiary of EDF; James Sterling, Communications, Engagement and Partnerships Manager at Bristol City Council in the UK; and Delta-EE expert Alix Weil.

Many thousands of thermally driven heat pumps – driven by combustion of natural gas – have been installed across Europe. While boilers are efficient, thermally driven heat pumps are a step higher, as they capture low grade heat from the air, operating at efficiencies of 160% and more. In this episode of Talking New Energy we look into the state of the thermally driven heat pump market today, and explore where it may be heading. Host Jon Slowe is joined by David Dupuis, Project Manager for Innovative Gas Products at Engie; Stefan van Uffelen, CEO of Cooll Technologies in the Netherlands, and Delta-EE expert Steven Ashurst.

DSOs are facing an ongoing challenge: They need to ensure the quality of electricity supply, while at the same time facilitate the energy transition by allowing an increasingly large volume of renewable energy into their networks. This webinar will look at what those challenges to the quality of supply look like and what are some of the solutions deployed by DSOs in the UK and the Netherlands, two of the leading countries in Europe with regards to the energy transition.

Transactive energy is about using economic mechanisms to balance supply and demand, potentially across the whole electricity system, while meeting customers needs. In this webinar we will explore the drivers and enablers bring the topic of transactive energy into the spotlight today, how the energy system could evolve under transactive energy and what can this transition means for DSOs.

Watch this webinar to find out:
• Where in Europe is DSF most attractive today?
• How do 21 European countries compare against five key metrics for DSF activity?
• How is European policy designed to facilitate DSF markets being implemented by member states?

During the launch webinar we share highlights from the 2nd edition of the EU Market Monitor for Demand Side Flexibility. A public version is available for free. Delta-EE Flexibility Research Service subscribers and smartEn members can access additional content on the seven top DSF markets in Europe.

The EU Market Monitor for DSF is a holistic and independent view of the progress of DSF across 21 European countries in 2020.
