The project addresses key questions regarding the increased use of energy balancing and expansion of such flexibility including pumped storage hydropower. These key questions are investigated in the research tasks of five work packages. The inter-disciplinary project integrates perspectives on the topic according to CEDREN's vision: technology, nature and society.
WP2: Demand for energy balancing and storage
WP3: Modelling and analyses to develop relevant business models
WP4: Environmental impacts of new operational regimes
WP5: Social acceptance and regulatory framework
