Taking a look back at the success stories of 2022, the Luxembourg Institite of Science and Technology (LIST) contributed to the “Flexibility possibilities and user behaviour analysis” (Flex-BeAn) project, focusing on society and network flexibility.
"In the long term, the FlexBeAn project aims to contribute to the active participation of households, SMEs, industries and e-mobility actors in the energy transition by the active provision of flexibility to grid operators or energy market participants. This would help with the integration of distributed energy resources, such as renewable generation, e-mobility or heat pumps, and supports the economic optimisation of grid assets, to the benefits of society and economy." Daniel KOSTER, Lead Engineer
Luxembourg is increasingly dependent on renewable energy sources, which fluctuate more than traditional sources. The country is also facing other forms of consumption due to the decarbonisation of the heating and transport sectors. In fact, it is essential for its electricity network to adapt.
Encevo, a leading player in the field of sustainable energy in Luxembourg and the Greater Region, has signed a framework partnership agreement with LIST and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) of the University of Luxembourg with the aim of uniting their innovative forces to speed up the transition to a sustainable energy landscape. The first project resulting from this partnership, entitled “Flexibility possibilities and user behaviour analysis” (Flex-BeAn), focuses on smart networks.
In this partnership, LIST focuses on the areas of society and network flexibility. The objective is to implement an integrated model capable of assessing the flexibility of different sectors (households, industries, SMEs and in the field of e-mobility) to enable users to adapt their consumption in line with the overall demand for electricity on the network in the long term.
