Distributed Flexibility – Lessons learned in the Nordics
Distributed Flexibility is a key tool to integrate growing shares of renewable electricity in the electricity system and a complement to costly investment in distribution grids. Accessing distributed flexibility makes the green transition more efficient. It also makes it more inclusive since it typically includes demand from small, distributed resources such as households and SMEs. While the Nordic TSOs have long experience using flexibility, this is a new development for the distribution system operators.
This report aims to support DSOs and all those who want to explore and use their local flexibility resources. It contains stories from successful pilot projects in the Nordic countries and draws the common lessons from them.
