Project description

Technically, INCREASE will focus on how to manage renewable energy sources in LV and MV networks, to provide ancillary services (towards DSO, but also TSOs), in particular voltage control and the provision of reserve. INCREASE will investigate the regulatory framework, grid code structure and ancilary market mechanisms, and propose adjustments to facilitate successful provisioning of anciliary services that are necessary for the operation of the electricity grid, including flexible market products.
