A key societal challenge faced by the European Union (EU) is to ensure secure, clean, and efficient energy provision. The specific objective is to make the transition to a reliable, affordable, publicly accepted, sustainable, and competitive energy system, aiming at reducing fossil fuel dependency in the face of increasingly scarce resources, increasing energy needs, and climate change. Increasing Europe’s share of renewable energy sources (RES) is also seen as a priority to reduce the regions dependence on energy imports and volatile fossil fuel supplies. The power grid is a key enabler in addressing these societal challenges and needs to keep up with the development of electrification and deployment of renewable intermittent energy sources.
This development result in some significant challenges. Some of these challenges and changes can, among other things, be solved through the provision of system services. System services are services provided to the distribution system operators (DSO) and/or to the transmission system operators (TSO) to keep the operation of the grid within acceptable limits for security of supply (1,2). These services and solutions necessitate greater coordination between the TSO, DSOs, and these new grid service providers as well as the end consumers offering their flexibility. The CoordiNet project is a response to this need for increased coordination and is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme. Over 42 months, in three European countries, valuable knowledge and experience have been gained.[...]
