User Community Meeting March 2020
The main goals of the second USEF User Community Meeting was to exchange knowledge across different USEF users to learn from each other, to involve active users in the improvements of the USEF Framework and explain the latest changes of this Framework.
Four DSOs, eight aggregators from three different nations were actively present in this meeting. The DSOs showed that local congestion gets more fierce and flexibility is becoming a much more important appliance in the near future. The aggregators presented the projects they actively participate by solving local congestion with flexibility from a variety of sources. Additionally the Dutch vision on changes of the Dutch Congestion Grid Code was presented which should pave the way for future proof market based flexibility.
USEF presented the latest version of the newly released USEF Flex Trading Protocol. This protocol mainly focusses on the relation between the DSO and aggregator and is the result of the lessons learned and ideas and change requests which were submitted during the first community meeting.
The next meeting is planned in Q1 2021. See you there!
