Three Dutch distribution grid operators, Stedin, Alliander and Enexis are scouting for Israeli technology that can simulate short-, medium- and long-term grid load based on customer profiles and predictions.
Energy consumption is increasing due to the energy transition and electrification (e.g. electric vehicles, use of heat pumps, electric cooking, etc.). Furthermore, energy is increasingly being generated on a decentral level by PV panels. These trends combined create complex energy consumption profiles that are difficult to predict. Therefore, we are looking for solutions that help DSOs in predicting customer consumption based on the underlying behaviour and intent. These customer insights can support in optimizing the energy system and maintaining a stable and reliable energy system.
The technology can address the following:
- Identify and characterize external data sources influencing energy consumption and supply
- Simulate consumer behaviour on a small scale (PC4) and predict future supply and demand?
- Identify customer behaviour patterns in energy consumption and show how these vary between groups of customers? For example, is a certain customer group more likely to buy energy management solutions?
- Identify patterns in (groups of) customers that are more likely to choose solutions increasing demand or supply of electricity on a specific location such as solar panels, electric vehicles, solar boilers, heat pumps or air conditioners etc?
The technology should be a proven solution, applicable for the Dutch energy grid and meet the Dutch DSO design criteria – Reliable, Safe and Accessible to everyone.
