Responding to the challenges of distributed generation and large-scale renewable energy integration


Icons2013-06 Modelling and analysis

We offer advisory services, advanced models and policy analysis tools to help project developers, grid operators and planning authorities in planning power system evolutions, focusing on the key challenges of the transmission and distribution systems today:

  • The power distribution system is currently not designed to capture power from decentralized power plants working from intermittent sources
  • The power transmission system is structurally weak at coastal zones, where large power volumes will arrive from offshore wind power plants
  • The power market does not provide the correct incentives for market actors to contribute to overall system optimization
