Full report on Aggregation models now available
USEF’s Aggregator Workstream has been running for over a year now and its in-depth analysis has resulted in a final set of defined models for the effective implementation of Aggregators, in both the Commerce & Industrial and the Residential domains. Addressing the Residential segment separately was considered crucial as it differs distinctly from C&I in that:
- Residential Prosumers offer less flexibility per asset and so a larger pool of Prosumers is required to achieve minimum flexibility product sizes
- The flexibility Prosumers offer is predominantly load-shift (EV, heat pump) with low marginal costs of activation
- Residential markets are more regulated.
All additional implementation models and recommendations are now included in a final report which will be submitted to the EG3 workgroup and has just been released through our website. You can download it here.
