Flexibility Standards for Device & DER Flexibility: Exclusive Interview with Wilco Wijbrandi of TNO - [an Energy Central Power Perspectives™ Interview]
- Sep 5, 2019 7:16 pm GMT
The state of the electric grid is undergoing a massive evolution these days, the likes of which haven’t been seen since the legacy utility companies first electrified the world. Smart grid technologies and devices are bringing about more energy data than ever before, distributed energy resources (DERs) are changing where power is produced and who controls that generation, and many stakeholders in the sector are just trying to keep up.
However, it’s the forward-looking entities that will dictate how this evolution continues, the organizations that seek to stay ahead of the curve and solve problems before they truly arise in this nascent field. Wilco Wijbrandi, an Energy Management Researcher at TNO, is one such innovator who is looking to prepare the industry for some of the critical needs that many might not even realize are going to be needs. Namely, Wilco is pushing the need for flexibility standards across this new grid, and he will be discussing this topic at the upcoming Smart Grid Flexibility 2019 conference with his presentation entitled “Flexibility Standards – designing a standardized interface for device and application agnostic procurement of flexibility services from a wide range of actors.”
