Addressing flexibility and efficiency within the European energy market,

Flexiciency, a four year project, launched in early 2015, was part-funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research programme, with the aim of addressing flexibility and efficiency within the European energy market, putting focus on consumers and making use of data from smart metering.

The European Market Place was developed in order to catalyze the interactions between relevant stakeholders in an open and standardised way and to encourage cross-border and cross-player access to innovative energy services.

The FLEXICIENCY project addressed several critical components of the modernising steps required for the European electricity grids to better enable a low carbon electricity value chain. The FLEXICIENCY project involving four major DSOs from Italy, France, Spain and Sweden, demonstrated large scale projects of new services based upon data accessibility in real time, i.e. advanced monitoring, local energy control and flexibility of aggregated customers (including demand response in action), together with an innovative solution building on the integration of existing systems towards offering such services at EU level to all players of electricity retail markets (e.g. Distribution System Operators, electricity retailers, aggregators, ESCOS and end consumers), either new or existing ones.

The demonstration also tested the new economic models and evaluated benefits in terms of possible achievements of 2020 energy consumption goals and CO2 emission targets.
