Economic benefits of AD for stakeholders

M. Vallés, P. Frías, C. Mateo, R. Cossent, J. Reneses

The objective of this document is to assess the inherent economic benefits of Active Demand (AD) on distribution business perimeter from a societal perspective, including the different stakeholders such as the DSO, consumers and AD aggregators. Furthermore, the regulatory barriers for the implementation of AD in the different contexts of the European scene, focusing on the countries where ADVANCED demos took place, are identified and some recommendations are provided in this sense in order to facilitate the future development of AD in electric power systems. First, the economic benefits of AD are quantified as the distribution network reinforcements that a more efficient use of existing and new grid capacity due to AD could defer or avoid in a ten-year frame. This economic assessment is carried out for a set of country-specific case studies and scenarios. Each case study is made up of a set of exemplary urban and rural networks of each country in the ADVANCED project (Spain, Italy, Germany and France). The expected impact of AD on consumption has been exogenously defined according to average effectiveness levels of AD programs observed in the VaasaETT database, which includes the ADVANCED Pilot programs, and the participation rates associated to the economic and regulatory scenarios defined in task 6.1: Baseline, Optimistic and Technical Potential. The estimated investment needs are estimated by means of the distribution network planning tool Reference Network Model (RNM) to determine the optimal investments required in particular networks.
