Together for a sustainable energy future in Europe
Our energy system will have to continue to integrate large amounts of volatile and fluctuating renewable energy, most of which is connected to the distribution grid. At the same time, more and more participants are entering the energy market. Both companies and individuals are transforming from consumers to prosumers, constantly changing roles; sometimes they need energy, sometimes they have some to spare. As a result, the system is becoming more complex, and currently far too much of this renewable energy is being wasted because the grid cannot absorb it at the right time.
The European-funded EUniversal project is tackling this challenge. Together with 18 partners from 7 European countries, E.ON and MITNETZ STROM in the German demonstrator are developing solutions to enable the integration of renewables into the energy system on a large scale. The aim is to enable grid customers to participate in flexibility markets and to provide distribution system operators (DSOs) with flexibilities for their active system management. A win-win situation for both the grid and customers.
As the largest distribution grid operator in eastern Germany, we manage an electricity grid that, with a length of over 73,000 km, reaches almost twice around the earth. Modern and efficient. We consistently implement legal and regulatory requirements and ensure non-discriminatory electricity grid operation for all market partners. Fair and independent. We secure the electricity supply for over 2.2 million people in Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. Reliable and competent.
You own flexible assets such as batteries, heat storage, heat pumps or PV systems and are interested to participate in innovative topics? Then get in touch at: email@example.com or via our contact form.
The start of the field test is planned for the beginning of 2022 and should run for about a year. As some preparatory measures are still planned, a specific date cannot yet be given.
The field test takes place in the network area of MITNETZ STROM in cities and towns in the federal states of Brandenburg and Saxony. The citizens of the regions concerned will be informed before the start of the field test
Citizens of the pilot areas who have flexible assets such as batteries, heat pumps, electric vehicles and are interested in innovative topics can take part in the field test.
