Call for experts: ACER expert group on demand side flexibility

What is it about?

The EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) launches today a call for a new consultative expert group on demand side flexibility. The group will advise the Agency on topics related to the Regulation on the internal market for electricity and specifically on demand side flexibility. 

The scope of the Expert Group

The group will focus on providing advice on demand side flexibility subjects, including rules on aggregation, energy storage and other provisions. In providing advice, experts can explore various topics such as product(s) provided by distributed energy resources to Transmission System Operators and/or Distribution System Operators, investigating the coordination options between them, as well as distributed energy resources’ access to wholesale markets.
