CaCharge contributes with power at Stockholm’s first flexibility market
CaCharge contributes with power when Greater Stockholm’s first marketplace for flexibility, sthlmflex, was launched first of December 202. In the future, at a permanent market, it can be profitable for CaCharge’s customers to contribute with power.
– This is about using existing resources smarter and is based on technical innovation in combination with cooperation between new players, said Minister of Energy Anders Ygeman during the inauguration. He is convinced that the initiative will spread to other cities in Sweden.
The aim is to release power by making it possible for electricity network companies to purchase flexibility services.
Demand for power is increasing, said The Mayor of Stockholm Anna König Jerlmyr.
– In addition to the climate challenge, lack of power is one of the future issues that the world’s cities are grappling with. The initiative is likely to spread to other cities, both in Sweden and in the world, said Anna König Jerlmyr.
– This is the first step on to road towards the smart grid, said Vattenfall’s CEO Anna Borg.
– It is not a question of when we will create a flexibility market, but what it will look like, said Ellevio’s CEO Johan Lindehag.
