  • Responsibilities:

  • - grid management < 30 kV

  • meteringcompany

  • data administrator

Wallonia

1. INFRAX = multi-utility

2. Regulatoryframework

1.Electricity market is totally unbundled since 2003

2. TSO = ELIA

DSO = EANDIS, INFRAX, ORES, SIBELGA

Local regulators = VREG, CWAPE, BRUGHEL

Federal regulator = CREG

Suppliers: Luminus, Nuon, Essent, …..

2. Regulatoryframework

  • 3. incentives for Smart Gridprojects are ratherlimited

    Regulatorinstalled a policyplatformto prepare an action plan for the implementation of smart grids

  • 4.Federal clearing house ATRIASwillbeinstalled in 2015

  • 5. INFRAX is a regulated and therefore an independentparty

3. Role of DSO in an open electricitymarket

  • 1.Facilitator of an open electricitymarket

  • 2.Buyer of flexibilityto defergridinforcement and enhancehostingcapacity of renewables

  • 3.Multiplemeter hardware and communication layersshouldbeavoided decreasescosts

  • 4.Control signalsmay not workagainsteachother

  • 5.Avoiding of fragmentation of responsabilities increasesefficiency.

  • 6.DSO = grid manager & data manager / independablepartner

4. Role of DSO in Smart Grids

From“building and connecting” towards

“connecting and managing”,

5. Experience of pilots and projects

SMART METER PROJECT (proof of concept phase)

.400 smart meters are in place

.Communication medium = cable network

offers good results and is applicable for smart grids

. problems: lack of standards,

lack of productsavailable on the market

cost/benefits

.roll out in phases / first clients whocanactivalyparticipate to the concept of smart grids.

5. Experience of pilots and projects

META PV

Goal:1. Increase the hosting capacity of DER with 50% with the same

costs as 10% of the costs of regularly needed grid reinforcement.

2. Development of new grid planning tools

How:Smart invertors that can control active and reactive power to keep the voltage profiles within the permitted boundaries

5. Experience of pilots and projects

  • Partners:

  • 3E(B), LRM (B), INFRAX (B), SMA (D), UoL (University of Ljubljana (Slovenië)), AIT (AustrianInstitute of Technology)

  • Demosite: Lommel / Opglabbeek : 130 households with 4 kW PV installations – 30 industrial installations of 200 kW :

  • Status: demosite operational end 2011 Website: www.metapv.eu

6. Expectations for the future

  • INFRAX participates in ‘’Living labsEVsFlanders’’

  • (170 EVs, 350 charge points)

  • Rolls out charging infrastructure on public domain for municipalities

  • Investigates how EVscanbeused to support grid management

6. Expectations for the future

  • Aggregation of DER - Commercial Virtual Power Plants

  • Provision of demand and generation flexibility based on commercial drivers

  • Offering flexiblity on global and local markets

  • New Market Designs

  • Allowing distributed generation and demand to participate in global and local markets

  • Incentives for DER to provide flexiblity

SLim

  • System Observability

  • Nowcast and forecast of distributed generation

  • Monitoring of distribution grid status

  • Data exchange between TSO and DSO

  • Smart Distribution Grid Control Technical Virtual Power Plant

  • Combining technical grid constraints and CVPP requests

  • Optimising grid operation by using availlabe generation and demand flexibility

6. Expectations for the future

  • Province of Limburg started a veryambitiues plan ‘’TACO2’’ to reach CO2 neutrality in 2020.

  • INFRAX participatesactivily in the DO-TANKS supporting TACO2

  • INFRAX, as multi-utility, wants to bepartner in Smart Citiesprojects
