This IndustRE report was developed by the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT), of Universidad Pontificia Comillas, with contributions from all project partners. It defines and describes the most suitable business models for the exploitation of demand flexibility by industrial consumers, either on their own or involving Variable Renewable Energy (VRE) generation. This report also provides a clear picture of the regulatory and market frameworks, highlighting how they affect the implementation of these business models, especially in a set of target countries defined in the context of the IndustRE project (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and UK). In addition, the report presents the views and opinions of relevant stakeholders, such as system operators, regulators, industries and market agents, regarding existing barriers and opportunities for these business models and as a result, it exposes a set of preliminary recommendations for regulators and policymakers to help them improving the regulatory and market conditions.
