From design to daily operation: the flexibility journey of a System Operator


Unlocking the power of flexibility to maintain the security of supply and increase the cost-efficiency is the ultimate goal of many actors across the energy value chain.

The path for reaching this objective is different for each actor, TSO or DSO, and across each geography. The starting point of this journey is key to ensure a successful end. All technical, economic and regulatory factors must be carefully considered and balanced to find the right market models that fits your specific needs.

Through a series of breakthrough pilot projects demonstrated across several countries, N-SIDE has supported multiple TSO and DSO along their flexibility journey, from the choice of the most appropriate market design, including the best coordination model, to the continuous operation of local flexilibility markets with our solutions.

Through this presentation, N-SIDE will be glad to share and exchange with you on our learnings.
