Recent Publications

The rise of the energy community & its lifeline to the battery
Increased consumer engagement combined with growing availability of affordable, small-scale distributed energy resources (DERs), along with legislative changes, present opportunities for local energy community (LEC) initiatives, in which consumers can actively participate in optimizing their energy bills. These initiatives can protect consumers from high and extremely volatile energy prices. Moreover, opportunities are emerging for traditional and nontraditional market players to enable and facilitate these new community models.
Energy retailers’ business model
Phaseout of supply generation assets such as coal, a high demand for gas in Asian markets pushing down European supply, cold weather, and the shortage of Russian gas supply together have led to record energy prices across Europe. Tensions between Ukraine and Russia will likely worsen the already dramatic situation on energy markets. The consequences are dramatic, both for retailers and consumers. On the one hand, there have been a series of electricity and gas retailer bankruptcies, as they have been unable to pass the full cost of the commodity price increase to end consumers.
Industrial energy management
With sustainability commitments on the horizon, how can industrial companies reach their targets cost-effectively?
Distributed flexibility: The next pool of value
