Demonstrations

4 major DSOs (e-distribuzione - Italy, Endesa Distribución - Spain, Enedis- France, and Vattenfall Distribution - Sweden) will run a set of 4 complementary demonstrations with real customers, covering new services. A 5th demonstration will be run by VERBUND Solutions GmbH, as a new comer in the Austrian electricity retail market, where smart metering has not been rolled out yet, thus covering different conditions, and allowing to draw insights on existing barriers towards energy efficiency service provisions. In addition, Stromnetz Berlin will participate as a third party of Vattenfall Eldistribution to validate the envisaged project architecture in a different regulatory context where metering activities are not under the responsibility of regulated players. Applicability and replicability of the project solutions will be thus duly addressed under diverse regulatory contexts.
