In a changing electricity market landscape, where the share of intermittent renewable energy in the energy mix is increasing, system flexibility becomes crucial. As part of the solution, the aggregation of renewable energy can significantly accelerate the integration of intermittent electricity sources, complement demand flexibility and decrease the reliance on renewable energy support schemes. Aggregators of demand and/or generation are therefore expected to have an increasingly important role to play in the future.

The energy landscape is shifting away from fossil fuels towards more sustainable electricity sources, and from vertically integrated monopolies to unbundled and competitive markets. Energy markets have been historically designed around centralised sources, however renewable energy generation requires a different approach – integrating different decentralised sources, energy storage and strengthening linkages with the demand side.
