Smart Grids for Smart Markets















CEDEC, the representative of more than 1500 local energy companies in Europe, proudly presents its new position paper on the future of Smart Grids and smart energy market developments.



Presented during a dinner in the European Parliament, kindly hosted by some MEPs, the publication was discussed with CEDEC members, representatives of the European Commission and Parliament as well as other stakeholders. .



This result has been accomplished by contributions of a numerous CEDEC members andshows a unanimous vision on the locally anchored energy future. Smart distribution grids will be the backbone of a reliable and secure energy system and market according to Gert de Block, Secretary General of CEDEC.











Why this position paper called Smart Grids for Smart Markets?




  • The way to a sustainable energy future depends on smart grids, enabling strongly reduced GHG emissions, with high penetration of renewable energy production and with more efficient energy use.




  • Smart Grids will change the energy landscape drastically by enabling consumers to become prosumers and to participate actively in the energy markets. Creating new markets and changing business models for energy companies should result in more benefits for the consumer.




  • DSOs will play a critical role in the implementation of Smart Grids due to their:

















    • Responsibility for a reliable, affordable and secure grid

      The penetration of renewable energy is mostly taking place at the DSO level and influences the way grids are operated and developed. Smart Grids provide the possibility of managing the balance between volatile energy supply and more flexible demand, keeping the grid reliable, affordable and secure through flexibility services.



    • A long standing relation with the consumers


      To use the full potential of a Smart Grid, consumer acceptance is key but for the moment still a barrier. To gain the necessary trust and commitment, sufficient, simple and transparent information that is delivered by a neutral market facilitator with a long standing consumer relationship is crucial.



    • Independence and neutrality


      Smart Grid deployment will render the roles and responsibilities within the energy market more complex, affecting also the roles and responsibilities of the DSO. Because of their neutrality as market facilitator, DSOs are best equipped to handle the smart grid data and to ensure a level-playing field in smart markets.





  • A successful Smart Grid future depends on finding adequate answers to the technological, financial and regulatory challenges. Necessary adaptations include clear and stable incentives for the obvious need for investments in grid development and upgrades.
