    IIT participate actively on «Industre» proyect. The flexibility of the industrial electricity demand has been identified as a potential that through innovative business models can facilitate further growth of variable renewable energy, while reducing the industrial electricity costs and contributing to the European energy policy goals. In this project the large industry is working with the renewable energy community to identify and implement business models for supplying variable renewable electricity to industrial users with flexibility in their demand, creating win-win situations. Several variations of the business models will be described covering different options like on and off-site renewable energy production. The business models will be adapted to 5 industrial sectors (chemicals, non-ferrous metals, cold storage, steel, and water treatment) and 6 target countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and UK).

    Recently published the report authored by several researchers from IIT, and led by Ignacio P. Arriaga, for IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) «Adapting market design to high shares of variable renewable energy». Liberalised electricity markets require timely adaptation to support higher shares of variable renewable (solar and wind) energy and distributed power generation. This study from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) presents the latest knowledge on the adaptation process for such markets, aiming to inform policy makers, regulators and system operators on the options available.. The report analyses challenges and solutions, and provides recommendations, on how to adapt electricity market design to high shares of variable renewable energy.
