EcoGrid 2.0 is an attempt to organize a market for flexible electricity consumption. The project is set on the Danish island Bornholm, and organized around two major areas: the design and development of a market for exchanging flexibility services, and a qualitative study of every-day life of energy consumers as they are being ‘reconfigured’ as increasingly flexible.
The researchers involved in the project are Trine Pallesen and Peter Holm Jacobsen, both from IOA. Apart from researchers from IOA, EcoGrid 2.0 comprises the following partners: DTU, Danish Energy Association, Bornholm Energi & Forsyning, IBM, Insero Software, Uptime-IT, Krukow and 2+1.
