The BestRES project is crossing the finish line and publishes its results.
In a changing electricity market landscape where the share of variable renewable energy in the energy mix is increasing, system flexibility becomes crucial. As part of the solution, the aggregation of renewable energy sources can significantly accelerate the integration of variable electricity sources, complement demand flexibility and decrease the reliance on renewable energy support schemes.

The BestRES project investigated the current barriers for aggregator business models (BMs) to understand how to improve the role of aggregators in future electricity market designs.
A series of documents describe in details the outcome of its three-year-long research from different perspectives:
