Non-technical drivers and barriers related to Energy Flexibility for consumers and industry
In this presentation TNO will highlight the design and adoption of flexibility means for example (industrial) heat pumps, PV, EV and home batteries from a consumer and industry perspective. Providing flexibility through these assets can strengthen business cases for consumers as well as industry. In several national (e.g., Kickstart, GO-E) and European projects (Bright) the adoption of assets and flexibility means are explored on the non-technical drivers and barriers that consumers and industry experience. Based on new insights in these drivers and barriers improved designs for assets and means are developed to boost adoption of these assets and flexibility means.
Presented by Nicole de Koning and Kevin Broecks from TNO.
