In cooperation with the European Union- funded BestRES project, this seminar will focus on the business models for renewable energy aggregation, providing an overview of the business models and legal framework available to aggregators acting in future markets.
Aggregators should be intermediaries to put “Consumers at the heart of the Energy Union”. Currently, aggregators are mostly acting for large scale and industrial consumers. Consumers, and prosumers, do not have means to trade directly in the energy markets and require the services of an aggregator. Aggregation service providers are therefore central players for the active participation in the energy markets.
In the short and medium term, aggregation appears to be more attractive in the field of large applications. The regulations in the “Clean Energy for all Europeans” Package envisage a situation in long term prospective where the consumers and prosumers are more integrated in the energy market.
This workshop will provide the participants with an overview on the real-life implementation of business models for aggregators acting in the future markets to support prosumers engagement and their clients of decentralised RES production units.
The workshop will also provide a set of national and European enabling conditions identified during the BestRES project for the uptake of business models for RES aggregation to support policy-makers in elaborating strategies and ease the transition towards cleaner sources of energy.
