• pic2245_eudeep.JPGInvolving 42 partners from 16 countries over 5,5 years, the EU-DEEP project  aimed at developing innovative business models to integrate Distributed Energy Resources (DER) into the electric system.


  • The project, coordinated by GDF SUEZ, detailed the conditions under which all players will be able to cope with the growing demand for Distributed Energy resources units. It identified the “hosting capacity” of the current electrical power system and the conditions that will enable this to be increased at an acceptable cost. Following this, an in-depth economic analysis of DER revealed that they can provide significant added value for the electrical system when they comply with network design constraints and contribute, in a reliable way, to better management of peak consumption.


  • Using three aggregation business models extensively tested in the field, the project highlighted the most promising directions to take from now on, to ensure efficient and sustainable integration of DER in the current electrical power system.


  • Tractebel Engineering was responsible for the technical direction of the project and for the coordination of the DER system integration issues. EUROSTAG® was used extensively for simulation.EGIDE was also used to develop training on DER integration.
