Flexible Connections and Dynamically Managing Distributed Energy Resources: Exclusive Interview with Joris Soens of Fluvius - [an Energy Central Power Perspectives™ Interview]
- Apr 17, 2019 12:56 am GMT
Fluvius is the distribution system operator (DSO) in Flanders, Belgium, working to provide – amongst other things - electricity and natural gas to customers across the region. While Fluvius does not buy or sell energy, the DSO is responsible for ensuring the energy reaches customers reliably and affordably, and recently that has meant staying ahead of the curve when it comes to distributed energy resources in addition to traditional baseload power plants.
As distributed energy resources continue to take on a greater role in the Flemish grid and investors continue to seek opportunities to build local renewable energy generation, of which a large share consists of wind turbines, Fluvius has had to figure out how to best manage these new sources of energy in the optimal way. These challenges are so critical that they are the focus of Joris Soens’s presentation at the upcoming the Grid Asset Management 2019 conference, where his talk is titled “Flexible Connections – dynamically managing distributed energy resources to optimize reinforcement costs and reduce network congestion.”
