Project description

Leafs evaluates the effects of increased costumer and energy market driven utilization of energy storage systems and load flexibility on power distribution grids. Technologies and operation strategies are developed that enable optimal use of distribution grid infrastructure by activating flexibilities using direct or indirect control also by the local grid operator or even incentives. The consumer benefits from more flexible integration of distributed energy resources at minimum network reinforcement costs as well as achieving a higher self-consumption level for customers operating their own DG-unit.
