SmartNet Workshop Series

24 October 2018 @ 8:00 am - 26 October 2018 @ 6:00 pm CEST

The Florence School of Regulation is pleased to host a 3-day workshop series organised by the Horizon2020 project SmartNet.

We invite you in Florence to learn and discuss the results achieved by the SmartNet research on the TSO-DSO coordination theme. Each day, different perspectives and interests of the stakeholders will be taken into account by the project team.

Day 1 for TSOs/DSOs

On Wednesday, 24 October 2018 we will present and discuss:

  • A critical analysis of the possible modalities of mutual interaction between TSO and DSO for the acquisition of ancillary services from distribution (coordination schemes)
  • A cost-benefit analysis of these coordination schemes, allowing to compare ICT deployment costs with benefits in terms of reduction of total system costs for the acquisition of the resources for secondary and tertiary regulation
  • An in-depth structure analysis of ancillary services markets highlighting what could be suitable in order to facilitate the participation of resources in distribution allowing them to compete on a level playing field basis with traditional resources located in the transmission system
  • Results of scenario analyses at the 2030 time horizon referred to Italy, Denmark and Spain, allowing to get a view on prices trends and networks flows.
  • A screening of real-time market-solving algorithms with a view on possible innovative solutions allowing a more efficient clearing procedure and reduced calculation time yet considering nodal detail for T&D networks.
  • A thorough analysis of ICT requirements for implementing the studied coordination schemes
  • Three pilots studying in detail technological solutions on three “real” cases implemented on the territory.

Day 2 for Regulators

On Thursday, 25 October 2018

  • A thorough analysis of TSO-DSO coordination schemes for the acquisition of the ancillary services from distributed energy sources connected to distribution grids
  • A cost-benefit analysis of these coordination schemes, allowing to compare ICT deployment costs with benefits in terms of reduction of total system costs for the acquisition of the resources for secondary and tertiary regulation
  • An in-depth analysis on how the structure of real-time markets should evolve in order to make it possible for distributed energy sources connected to distribution grids to compete on a level playing field basis with traditional resources located in the transmission system
  • An attentive analysis of the regulatory implications to implement the studied TSO-DSO coordination schemes with respect to the evolution of the regulation in Europe and in the three focus countries (Italy, Denmark and Spain)

Day 3 for Utilities and Traders

On Friday, 26 October 2018

  • A comprehensive analysis of possible ways to coordinate TSO and DSO between themselves and with the ancillary services markets to allow participation of resources in distribution grids to ancillary services markets
  • Scenario analyses at the 2030 time horizon referred to Italy, Denmark and Spain, allowing to get a glance to market prices and dispatching of the single resources.
  • Cost-benefit analysis of the studied TSO-DSO coordination schemes, allowing to compare ICT deployment costs with benefits in terms of reduction of total system costs for the acquisition of the resources for secondary and tertiary regulation
  • Micro-analysis based on simulation results to assess profitability for the different figures participating in ancillary services markets.
