IndustRE project: Business models & market barriers for flexible industrial electricity consumption
The IndustRE project has just published a report that defines and describes the most suitable business models for the exploitation of demand flexibility by industrial consumers, either on their own or involving certain interaction with variable renewable energy generation.
The report also intends to provide a clear picture of the regulatory and market frameworks, highlighting how they affect the implementation of these business models, especially in a set of target countries defined in the context of the IndustRE project (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and UK).
The views and opinions of relevant stakeholders, such as system operators, regulators, industries and market agents, regarding existing barriers and opportunities for these business models have been collected in an extensive consultation process.
Finally, a set of preliminary recommendations for regulators and policymakers to help them improving the regulatory and market conditions are presented.
