"Renewable Energies & Flexible Industrial Consumption" Conference
The IndustRE project, organised together with BBH the 26th BBH Energy Conference with the title "Renewable Energies & Flexible Industrial Consumption".
The BestRES and IndustRE Consortia organised jointly the workshop “Enabling PV integration by delivering flexibility to the energy market” in Amsterdam on 26th September 2017, on the occasion of the EU PVSEC, the European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition.
A workshop was organised on the 30th of June 2017 in London (Imperial College) focusing on the use of flexibility in industrial electricity demand as a means to lower the cost of energy for the industry, while contributing in developing a cleaner and more secure power system.
IndustRE co-organised with IFIEC, SEDC and ECOFYS a session at the policy conference of EUSEW 2017 with the title: "Engagement at scale — the role of industrial energy users for a successful Clean Energy package". For more information visit the EUSEW website.
There was a session dedicated to the IndustRE project at the 1st Smart Energy Summit on the 6 April 2017 in Brussels. During that session there was discussion on how policy decisions affect the feasibility of business models for valorising the flexibility of large industrial electricity users.

The preliminary results from European Commission's public consultation on Electricity Market Design have been published. The first item that is listed as having received the backing from a large majority of stakeholders is the need for scarcity pricing.
Stakeholders discuss potential business models at IndustRE conference
A more flexible electricity consumption of industrial plants in return for financial benefits can tackle two major challenges at the same time: the integration of variable renewable energy systems on the grid, and the rising electricity cost for industry. This requires successful Business Models that create actual win-win situations. The IndustRE workshop of 27 October 2015 in Brussels surveyed the standpoints of various stakeholders on the topic.
