Energy provision is undergoing radical change. Renewable energy sources are replacing the hydrocarbon-based generation, with distributed energy systems playing an increasing role in balancing supply and demand.
Ecofys’ business area Energy Systems and Markets supports all relevant actors to make this transition. Specifically, we provide guidance on: benchmarking financial indicators; assessing feasibility and identifying potential sources of finance; eliminating inefficiencies; improving financial performance. We support utilities as well as transmission and distribution system operators to secure electricity supply within the future energy system, by evaluating options for increasing renewable energy penetration levels. Furthermore, we assist the European Commission, the public sector, and NGOs to create the regulatory framework required to effectively and efficiently invest, operate, and maintain the security of the power system going forward.
Flexibility is a key prerequisite for the integration of high shares of renewable into the power sys-tem. Ecofys takes an interdisciplinary approach to solving the technical, economic and regulatory challenges associated with developing future power systems.
Ensuring security of supply for future power systems dominated by renewables calls for new op-erational paradigms. Ecofys combines in-depth technical knowledge of the challenges of operat-ing power systems, with a clear understanding of the implications of forthcoming changes on market and policy frameworks. This makes us an ideal facilitator between diverse stakeholders.
Ecofys provides strategic end-to-end support for developing renewable energy projects. We benchmark financial indicators, identify areas of optimisation and check key hypotheses to ensure individual projects are feasible, legal and suitable for financing. In the operational phase we support the implementation process to eliminate technical inefficiencies and improve financial performance.
