DE-RISK PROJECT
DE-RISK is a project that will run from 2022 to 2025 and aims to promote the market acceptance of renewable energy systems by providing up to 100 GW of flexibility by 2030. Utilizing an innovative customer behavior change process, it seeks to minimize investments and risks.
Additionally, it integrates digital twins and multi-sided business models to reduce technical risks and enhance sustainability. Moreover, it develops regulatory recommendations to ensure fair and transparent adoption of flexibility markets.
OBJECTIVES of DE-RISK:
OBJECTIVE 1
ENGAGE THE END CONSUMERS TO TAKE AN ACTIVE PART UNDER THE LOCAL FLEXIBILITY STRATEGY
DE-RISK will motivate and engage customers to influence the energy demand curve, participate in flexibility sharing and become an active part of the underlying local flexibility market.
OBJECTIVE 2
INCREASE RES HOSTING CAPACITY AND MINIMIZE THE RISK OF IMPLEMENTATION AND OPERATION OF LFMs
DE-RISK will develop parameterizable digital twin models to streamlining the work of a system integrators and aggregators to perform high accuracy simulation before physical integration and operation and be confident in 100% error-free commissioning.
OBJECTIVE 3
EXPOSE LOCAL FLEXIBILITY REGULATORY CHALLENGES AND DEVELOP A REGULATORY RECOMMENDATION PACKAGE TO OVERCOME THEM
DE-RISK will do State-of-the-art regulatory analysis of the local flexibility markets and provide open, evidence based, modern and transparent guidelines targeting high impact local, national and EU policy makers.
OBJECTIVE 4
LEVERAGE THE ADOPTION OF LOCAL FLEXIBILITY MARKETS AND RES INVESTMENTS
DE-RISK will explore new business opportunities through innovative multi-sided business models to support all actors in the LFMS while analysing and validating new financial schemes to democratize the access to RES investments schemes and boost RES market uptake.
OBJECTIVE 5
VALIDATE DE-RISK HOLISTIC SOLUTION TO GUARANTEE ITS SCALABILITY AND REPLICABILITY
DE-RISK will demonstrate multidisciplinary integrated solution at 4 sites operating under different energy market, regulatory and climatic conditions in Spain, Ireland and Turkey over a period of at least 12 months.
DE-RISK will support the market uptake of RES by de-risking the adoption of Local Flexibility Markets to increase the RES hosting capacity of the distribution network.
High accuracy simulations de-risking the investments, implementation and operation.
Increase User Engagement and active participation in LFMs
Ensure long-term and sustainable benefits across the LFMs value chain.
Ensure fairness and competitiveness in adoption and operation of the LFMs
Democratize the access to sustainable investments,
Demonstrate De-Risk holistic solution in 4 case studies located in Türkiye, Spain, Ireland and France
