Facts & Mission


The significant rise in distributed renewable energy sources has placed an enormous burden on the secure operation of the electrical grid, impacting both the transmission system and the distribution system operators.

INCREASE wants to focus on how to manage renewable energy sources in low and medium voltage networks, provide ancillary services in particular voltage control and the provision of reserve. The market design and regulatory framework will also be considered. Finally, the costs and benefits for different actors will be assessed.
