More than 1/3 of the EU's power will need to be generated from Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in 2020. This implies a profound transformation of Europe's energy system, grid and markets. The integration of distributed and micro generation in the electricity grid will provide more options for Distribution System Operators (DSOs) to balance their grid areas on the Medium Voltage (MV) and Low Voltage (LV) levels, thereby reducing stress at the Transmission System Operator (TSO) level. At the same time, this will place new requirements on TSOs and DSOs, particularly in terms of operational security. This paper describes the impact of intermittent distributed generation (DG) on distribution grid operation and how load balancing can be used to reduce that impact and to take advantage of it.
