Streaming flexibility to the power system

Project: EU project

Project Details


The ambition of the STREAM project (STREAM) is the creation of an innovative and robust flexibility eSTREAM project aims to create an innovative and robust flexibility ecosystem (“STREAM Ecosystem”) on the low voltage (LV) grid side of existing power markets connecting data, technologies, stakeholders and markets, thus facilitating the flexibility provision. A variety of benefits for both technical- and non-technical aspects of energy services supporting power market and power grid operations will be created. STREAM will empower data from flexible devices and support creation of other citizen services through a User-centric Approach to improve their acceptance. The exploitation of both types of services will benefit from new business models, built upon local LV flexibility markets and novel barter-like mechanism, developed in STREAM. Presently, such services and business models don’t exist in either established- or developing power markets. The STREAM ecosystem covers their implementation, includes various stakeholder groups on all levels of power markets, from small-scale end-users, energy communities, ESCOs, service providers, to market- and system operators. To achieve the goals, STREAM consortium comprises relevant actors to capture the entire flexibility value chain within STREAM ecosystem from end users, energy communities to service providers, flexibility services providers, market operators, DSOs, and TSO, complemented by technology and research partners. The latter will supply knowledge in a form of STREAM tools that will enable the realization of STREAM ecosystem. They will be adapted, deployed, calibrated, and demonstrated in the 4 STREAM pilots that serve as a basis for benchmarking of STREAM ideas. They cover geographical, economic, size and type diversity of the consumers. While complementary, the pilots focus on a specific part of STREAM Ecosystem. The pilot partners have all the essential roles and authority to carry out the specified activities.
