Danish Pilot: flexibility resources from indoor swimming pools

  • In this project the swimming pools will be controlled to provide ancillary services to the grid in a new market setup which will make it easier for small distributed assets to provide flexibility.
  • This will make it easier for the DSO to balance the distribution grid, variable renewables will be better utilized and grid expansions might be avoided in the long term.
  • A small test system has already been built and proved the concept of two different API solutions.
