Scaling access to flexibility
- To increase access to flexibility, and realize the energy transition, barriers need to be lifted.
- The value of flexibility, whether its renewable aspect, but also its monetary value, need to be proven.
- Data portability needs to be improved
- This will result in more and better energy services to the consumer, creating competition behind the meter.
