Abstract
Enexis is a distribution system operator (DSO) in the Netherlands and one of the front runners for facilitating the energy transition in the Dutch electricity grids. The Interflex project is initiated in 2017 under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme of the European Union. The Dutch demonstration project is conducted in the city of Eindhoven, where a mixed urban neighbourhood is chosen for integrating local battery storage in the low voltage (LV) electricity network along with several public charging facilities for electric vehicles (EVs) and local electricity production from photovoltaic (PV) panels. In this project, Enexis aims to solve congestion problems in the network efficiently while maintaining the voltage quality within the Dutch standard boundary limits. To attain this goal, Enexis may purchase the required flexibility from the local flexibility market based on the price of flexibility. In addition to that, the variable connection capacity mechanism is also introduced that allows the DSO to manage the network’s congestion efficiently. In this paper, the importance of smart battery storage for testing the proposed concepts is discussed. Furthermore, a short description is given about the current status of the project.
