How do utilities deal with energy congestion?

There is no single solution. Each player will need to define its own strategic and operational way forward. We have modeled four simplified scenarios that outline different approaches to the threat of congestion in the imaginary town of Gladville.
 

How do utilities deal with energy congestion?

There is no single solution. Each player will need to define its own strategic and operational way forward. We have modeled four simplified scenarios that outline different approaches to the threat of congestion in the imaginary town of Gladville.
 

Four options to master the congestion threat

1. Infrastructure enhancements
In this scenario, infrastructure reinforcement is the only action taken by the utility. 
2. Battery storage integration
In this scenario, the utility adds 1MW / 4MWh of battery storage in year one. 
3. Demand response program
The utility implements a demand response program for commercial and industrial and residential customers together with the same infrastructure enhancements.
4. Distributed Energy Resource Management System
The utility implements a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) as the core platform to manage the different grid assets and information.
