How to Replicate solutions for the flexibility challenge? ReFlex Guidebook presentation

20 Feb 2019 @ 14:00 CET
Duration: 1h

This webinar provides guidance on characteristics and specificities of replication of Flexibility Use-Cases aimed at end-user’s services, supply side services, infrastructure modifications and direct energy storage. It highlights insights from the forthcoming ReFlex Replicability-Guidebook, drawing on the learning experience form ReFlex partners’ 8 demo sites in 4 countries (AT, CH, DE and SE) and a comprehensive socio-technical replicability concept, including the levels of technical functionality, market institutions and regulation, social and political practices, social networks and micro- and macro-economy.The ReFlex-Guidebook include 4 Use-Cases. We will outline which socio-technical context factors are to be looked at before prospective replication projects are planned and implemented. The webinar will provide a checklist and information on some tools to support demo regions and the wider group of stakeholders in smart grid and smart energy system in co-creating and advancing their smart grid initiatives and replication projects.

The third Community of Practice workshop, organized in the framework of the EU-funded Project ReFlex, took place from the 4th to 6th of June 2018 in Lausanne, Switzerland. This event brought together up to 25 participants: Swedish, German, Austrian and Swiss project partners, stakeholders and experts of the eight demo sites participating in the ReFlex project. 

During the visit of the demo site Güssing from 22nd-23rd of March 2018, the mayor Vinzenz Knor, the managing director of Güssing centre for renewable energy, Joachim Hacker, as well as the managing director of Elektro-Güssing GmbH, Martin Zloklikovits, emphasised the great importance of energy topics for the development of the region in order to stop the outflow of young people from rural to urban areas. The abundance of natural resources such as forests and meadows was an advantage for the development of biomass and biogas power plants for the production of energy, heat and bio-fuel for cars.
