The main objective of the BestRES project was to improve the role of renewable energy aggregators in future electricity market design. In order to achieve this, the work has been structured for achieving the following objectives:
- Investigate existing European business models for the aggregation of renewable energy sources, gain a deep understanding of their technical, market, environmental and social benefits and legal barriers preventing their implementation
- Improve the current business models considering market designs with a focus on competitiveness and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). These improved business models were then be implemented with real data and monitored in the following target countries: United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Cyprus, Spain and Portugal.
- Replicate the renewable energy aggregator business models across the European Union and increase the integration of the renewable sources
