160 people joined the final EcoGrid EU conference


On Tuesday September 15th the final EcoGrid EU results were presented at the EcoGrid EU conference. About 160 people joined the conference at the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby. They listened to the experiences from the EcoGrid EU demonstration, project, which has come to an end after four and a half year.

«Despite of challenges and steep learning curve along the road, the  results of the demonstration are very satisfying» said Per Lund, (the Danish Transmission System Operator). He was responsible for the overall evaluation of the demonstration project.

The project coordinator Ove Grande from Sintef Energy Research was happy with the final results. He was also proud of the recognition the project has received such as the international nomination to the `Sustainia award´ for the best ICT solution (2012) and the `Honourable Mentioned´ prize (ISGAN/GSGF) for consumer engagement on Bornholm (2014).

Maja Bendtsen, Østkraft (host of the demonstration on Bornholm) referred to the final customer survey where 70% of the respondents (900 households) gave a positive rating to the overall EcoGrid EU project and that almost 80% would like to participate again in a project such as EcoGrid EU.

«In the current regulatory framework, incentives to have efficient system operation is too low», said Georgios Giannopoulos, ELIA, (System Operator in Belgium). He was responsible for the EcoGrid EU Roadmap and the recommendations to policy makers: «We need incentives for more efficient operation, this will improve utilization of the assets and postpone investments. Innovation is likely to result in more sophisticated and efficient operation. Smart network tariff structures should incentivize active consumers and system needs and cost of energy should be better communicated and understood by all stakeholders».
