CWI launches spin-off SEITA energy flexibility
More and more renewable—and cheaper—energy is reaching the market. As of January 1st 2017, new legislation in the Netherlands enables suppliers to sell energy per quarterhour. Within the next two years, it is expected that consumers can profit from variable tariffs on a large scale, where before this option was only available to large industrial clients. This shift in the market offers new opportunities to both the demand and supply side of the energy market.
SEITA now offers a complete scientifically developed consultancy package with which energy suppliers can calculate the benefits of using flexible energy tariffs. The package includes:
- Balancing risk: an instrument for energy traders to calculate financial risks due to uncertainties in price, demand and supply, and to calculate the potential savings with demand response.
- Reliable flexibility: an instrument to determine the demand response potential for a fleet of electric vehicles.
- Network traffic: an instrument to determine the influence of demand response on the electricity network, in order to prevent peak loads.
Felix Claessen (CEO): “I’m convinced that our whole society can run solely on renewable energy. To achieve that we will have to learn how to deal with the unpredictability and patterns of nature, but also of man. SEITA’s innovative analysis tools make it possible to get a grip on these patterns. This will facilitate energy suppliers to deliver all-renewable energy to their customers. A positive development for consumers, the market and our environment.”
