Our demonstration in northwest Germany focusses on a low voltage network in a rural area with a high penetration of distributed energy resources (DER). It is these regions where a high potential for DER meets a low residential and commercial load where the challenges of the energy transition surface first.
The main objectives of the trial are the coordination between local balancing mechanism and centralized grid operation and the allocation of flexibility in local networks between the local network and higher-level networks. A further objective is an effective informational and temporal uncoupling of low and medium voltage networks by handling energy supply and export in bulk packages rather than a real time exchange.
