cyberGRID – as the technical coordinator – plays an important role amongst 13 project partners from 5 different European countries. eBADGE is funded by the EU FP7 program.
The 3rd Energy Package clearly boosts the development of an Integrated European balancing mechanism. In this context in 2011, ACER has started the development of the Framework Guidelines on Electricity Balancing. It is expected from the ACER statements that Demand Response will play a significant role in the future integrated balancing market allowing Virtual Power Plants, comprising Demand Response and Distributed Generation resources (DG/RES) to compete on equal ground. However, creating an efficient pan-European system for balancing and reserve opens a range of challenges that require adequate responses on the market and technical sides.
