Webinar – What DSOs need to know about transactive energy
Webinars
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...

“The way that residential customers pay for distribution networks is set to change. In summary, we’re likely to see more charges based on capacity (kW), compared to the current system which is largely based on energy (kWh).” This blog article will discuss how the opinions captured in December’s online survey regarding network tariffs compare with...

Obtaining electricity network connections for new housing developments is often constrained by the current regulatory investment methodology as well as by technical and other factors. This is being exacerbated by increasing electrical demands arising from the electrification of heat and mobility to meet decarbonisation targets. This can result in sub-optimal investment decisions focused primarily on...

We asked our research team what they thought we’ll see in the energy transition in 2022. Here’s what they had to say. Robert Bloom, Hydrogen Research Manager “To date, many green hydrogen projects have been planned and announced in Europe across the world, bur relatively few of these have reached final investment decision. I believe...

Historically, network tariffs job has been to finance the maintenance, upgrade and operation of the electricity grid. However, as the energy transition unfolds, tariffs are starting to have another job as an additional instrument for DSOs (distribution system operators, also known as distribution network operators) to operate the electricity grid by influencing consumers’ consumption. At...

Electricity distribution networks will increasingly come under the spotlight as the energy transition gathers pace.  Distribution networks are entering a brave new age. They have done their job excellently in Europe in the previous decades – distributing electricity from the transmission system to households and businesses in an increasingly efficient, cost-effective, reliable manner.  But the nature of...
Is transactive energy really such a great idea?
Blog
Transactive energy is, according to the Gridwise Architecture Council: “A system of economic and control mechanisms that allows the dynamic balance of supply and demand across the entire electrical infrastructure using value as a key operational parameter” To some observers, this is an exciting innovation, using financial incentives to optimise performance of the energy system....
