Launch of the "Nationaal Energie Dashboard"

Data on energy generation, use and CO2 emissions are becoming increasingly important for the energy transition. For this purpose, Gasunie and TenneT have launched the National Energy Dashboard on March 21, in cooperation with the Dutch Renewable Energy Association (NVDE) and the National Climate Platform (NKP). The dashboard is a further development of the existing websites Energieopwek, the CO2monitor and the Energy Weather Report.

How Blockchain Technology enables Flexibility for TenneT

TenneT’s aspiration for Flexibility: “We are driving the energy transition by ensuring that all technologies can be unlocked by market parties and grid operators…” – to meet this aspiration TenneT has running multiple Flexibility Initiatives. One of them is connecting Flexibility Service Providers (FSPs), respectively Balancing Service Providers (BSPs), to TenneT using the Crowd Balancing Platform (CBP), operated by Equigy. The CBP is a blockchain-based system that enables communication and information flows between the parties involved in the transaction of flexibility services. By means of standardized resource registration, bidding, activation and measurement flows, the platform enables aggregators of distributed energy resources (DERs) to offer their flexibility services to the market.

Happy Holidays!

Now more than ever it is a time to reflect on what has happened this year. The pandemic changed everything, from the way we work to the way we relate to others. We believed on a new normality and even though we haven’t yet achieved it, it is still on the horizon as another goal to pursue!

Although we don’t know when this is going to change, we would like to remark our capacity as human beings to adapt and keep on working to see the good in our environment; dreams, ideas and projects are still in the making!

In that sense and on behalf of the Digital Data Days, the organizational team wishes you a joyful and healthy merry Christmas season.

Tuesday, 14 December 2021

Stay tuned!

As the year nears its end, our new Digital Data Days platform is almost ready for you. Stay with us for its coming release, soon!

The 3D's

How 3D's symbolize the energy transition?! It's been several months since we started the Digital Data Days platform, and of course it seems logical that when we refer to the 3 D's as the Digital Data Days. However, the letter D represents more in the energy transition!

The energy transition is Decarbonized, Decentralized, and Data driven!

What is the potential of Blockchain technology in the energy sector?

The architecture of Blockchain technology makes it a secure and trustable technology for data exchange, promising for the energy sector. Blockchain technology provides a secure and decentralised way of data exchange and storage . This works through sets of blocks and unique hashes which are the backbone of the blockchain. Every user within a specific blockchain has the same information or set of blocks as other users, which creates an alternative of centralized cloud storing to a decentralized infrastructure.

The energy sector is becoming decarbonized, decentralized and distributed. Blockchain technology allows the creation of smart contracts which are highly secure and useful for transparent transactions. In the Netherlands, the Crowd Balancing Platform is already making use of blockchain technology to enable aggregators to use decentralized assets to provide automatic frequency restoration reserves (aFRR). Together with other partners such as TSO’s and industry we are exploring more opportunities to make use of the technology, for instance by facilitating intelligent charging of decentralised batteries connected to the grid to reduce grid congestion.

Digitalization supports the energy system of the future through smart grids and connecting new flexibility sources. To picture how this is carried out, here is a clear example of how a new digital platform supports balancing of the electricity system: the crowd balancing platform, hosted by EQUIGY!

TenneT is using the Crowd Balancing Platform (CBP) as a portal for balancing services (aFRR) in the Netherlands and is developing the CBP for congestion management services in Germany. The CBP supports the ease of connection for market parties by making use of an API connection.

Are you interested in the use cases of EQUIGY in other countries?

Decarbonisation in the electricity sector

The energy transition is here, and the energy sector is on its way to decarbonisation. Therefore, as of now it is a matter of accelerating the implementation of sustainable energy, while at the same time keeping energy supply secure and affordable. In that sense the TSO's now face the challenge of rapid decarbonisation of the electricity system, which means major efforts should take place in grid capacity expansion, and integration of variable renewable energy. To cope with these challenges and global climate changes, the energy sector and neutral stakeholders such as TenneT must go through a digital transformation. In our joint thesis paper with the Universität Bayreuth and Fraunhofer-Institut für Angewandte Informationstechnik FIT we suggest 5 main points to be considered:

  • Sector coupling and grid expansion
  • Decentralisation requires bridging the digital gap
  • Digital certificates for decarbonisation
  • Agile sandbox testing and learning
  • Carbon emissions of grid expansion measures

Electrification across sectors

Electrification is growing across sectors, decentralised and variable renewable energy is changing the behaviour of the electricity system and challenges the TSO's core tasks. As the system asks for changes, TenneT sees digitalization as the key enabler of the energy transition. But, how so? Simple, digitalization and the development of smart grids facilitate markets for new actors and roles, such as prosumers contributing to a reliable electricity system, and even facilitating sector coupling. Digitalization is crucial to integrate the European electricity market and at the same time operate the grid safely.

Digitisation vs Digitalization

Digitization vs Digitalization, why is it important to distinguish them?

Digitization stands for the transformation of analogue information into digital, whereas Digitalization represents the conversion of processes into digital ones by means of digital technologies in order to achieve more efficient business models.

Both, Digitization and Digitalization are important to the energy transition, for example when data,obtained from digitalized sensors in cars share weather data. By sharing the data, it can be used to support weather forecasts to determine the production of renewables! TenneT and market parties can use this data to improve insights in grid loads and to act upon the behaviour of production and consumption of energy.

Looking back on a successful workshop

Looking back on a successful workshop “Flexibility and Market Trends” on the 29th of June, we are already visioning the next Digital Data Day with a focus on Digitalization of the Energy Sector taking place at the beginning of next year. As a frontrunner in every aspect of the energy transition TenneT is aware of the importance of the market parties and their input, which can be translated into project ideas. Stay tuned into our upcoming workshop.
