Energy flexibility entails an adaption in the timing of energy supply and/or demand. Demand-side flexibility means changing the timing of electricity use, and therewith the timing of the energy demand. In this way, households’ consumption can be adapted to renewable energy generation.
This crash course explains what flexibility is, why it is increasingly important and how energy communities can benefit from providing flexibility.
The crash course is the fourth module of a series of crash courses created by the cVPP project. The other available modules are:
A guide that presents different options in which municipalities may be able to adapt their public procurement processes to better support energy communities.
A guide that identifies and shortlists practical examples of digital solutions for energy communities in different scopes of application.
Whether you don’t know where to start from or you are stuck with a specific issue in the development of your energy community, an expert can help you.
