BALANCE THE GRID
Vattenfall invites you to help in the challenge of incentivizing consumers to communicate energy demand and production to allow all stakeholders to balance the grid.
Find out below what you can do and how you can participate in Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, 2020.

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP
Balancing the power grid is and will be more and more difficult and expensive. While technological advances have already disrupted many areas of the power system and, for example, empowered consumers to become producers and traders of their own electricity, the balancing markets still resemble an exclusive club of the big industry players. How can we enable also small consumers and prosumers to contribute to balancing?
The power grid is one of the most sophisticated infrastructures ever built. By building the energy flexibility ecosystem on a digital protocol layer, the network will become fit for a fossil-free future and will prevent major and costly physical grid investments that will impact the grid and its customers. It will make the power system more robust and transparent, enabling anyone to build an infinite amount of business cases on top of your solution.
WHAT WE ARE BUILDING
The challenge for the teams and everyone helping them:
“Enable the entire energy sector to transition from an ego-system to an eco-system, where everyone and anything is incentivized to share demand AND production of green power. You will co-create the fast and energy efficient digital power market commons by developing a protocol communication layer to power an awesome fossil-free future within one generation.”
Find out what each team is building and which part of the problem they are tackling, and how you can contribute.
