The demand for electricity in Amsterdam is growing dramatically. On the one hand due to the growth of Amsterdam and the region with additional homes, companies, social functions, data centers... On the other hand, we are experiencing an energy transition with a transition from fossil fuels to clean fuels such as electricity for air quality and CO2 reduction ambitions.
As a result, there is congestion on the electricity network, and therefore (large) customers cannot be connected. The network in Amsterdam must be increased by a factor of 3 to 5. In addition, it appears that the current infrastructure is not being used to its full potential. It is technically possible to make better use of it. The stumbling block is organisational. Could we jointly optimise storage, consumption and generation of energy so that less is demanded from the network operator's existing and future electricity infrastructure?
Or: How can we better organise and distribute the generation, storage and consumption of energy in the future?
