A literature review of explicit demand flexibility providing energy services

T. Freire-Barceló, F. Martín, A. Sánchez

Electric Power Systems Research Vol. 209, pp. 107953-1 - 107953-17


Current power systems are characterized by the increase of renewable generation and distributed energy resources introducing more variability on the generation and enhancing the importance of the management in the consumption side. In this paper, a thorough review about the explicit demand flexibility (EDF) concept is addressed. This review, firstly, brings clarification over the different terms that have been used in the literature and the agents that are involved in the demand flexibility framework. Secondly, analyzes the different balancing services where EDF could participate, identifying the main barriers found for each market. In addition, it contributes to classify how mathematical models include EDF participation in ancillary services and congestion management, finding the main weaknesses and working lines for EDF integration in such models. Finally, a European overview is assessed to see where flexible resources have actual participation and how it is performed.

Resumen divulgativo:

El paper presenta una revisión de la literatura sobre la flexibilidad de la demanda. Desde los distintos tipos que hay y los términos que la envuelven, hasta su potencial participando en los mercados de balance, su desarrollo en países de Europa y los modelos matemáticos en los que participa.
