Deployment of a datahub shared by all system operators to support electrical flexibility

08-03-2018

The first shared central datahub for the Belgian grid is up and running. This new IT system – the result of close collaboration between the distribution system operators (Eandis, Infrax, Ores, Resa and Sibelga) and the transmission system operator (Elia) – will encourage market flexibility.

The distribution system operators AIEG, AIESH and Regie De Wavre will also participate in the datahub. Against a backdrop of growing intermittent renewable energy generation, greater flexibility in the grid is increasingly necessary to ensure balance between supply and demand at all times and at the best cost.
