NODES will engage in a joint project with German TSO TransnetBW, the DSOs Netze BW, MVV and Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall, as well as the flexibility providers MVV Trading, Next Kraftwerke, Entelios and Sonnen. “DA/RE” stands for “data exchange and redispatch”. It aims at providing a showcase for innovative redispatch concepts within the distribution grid. It is geographically centered around the south west of Germany, one of the economically strongest regions in the country, where conventional power plants including coal and nuclear are being phased out. The NODES marketplace will be tested as part of the project.
