Benchmark of markets and regulations for electricity, gas and heat and overview of flexibility services to the electricity grid
This report (2019) is a public deliverable of the MAGNITUDE H2020 funded European project. The MAGNITUDE project aims to develop business and market mechanisms, as well as supporting coordination tools to provide flexibility to the European electricity system, by enhancing the synergies between electricity, heating/cooling and gas systems. In this context, one of the first steps is to identify and describe the most relevant flexibility services that could be provided to the electricity system by Multi-Energy Systems (MES) to achieve the project goals. This is the main objective of this report, along with the characterisation of the mechanisms for the procurement/provision of these services in the seven case study countries and a description of the gas and heating/cooling sectors, which will be affected by such provision of services to the electricity system.
Keywords: multi-energy systems, flexibility services, electricity system, markets, regulations, gas system, heating/cooling networks.
