Redispatch 2.0 for German Utilities

What does Redispatch 2.0 mean?

With the adoption of renewables and distributed generation, Germany legislators have revised the NABEG 2.0 regulations that require the shutdown of generating units in the event of network bottlenecks. Redispatch will no longer be the responsibility of the four German transmission system operators (TSOs). In the future, the new regulation will also extend to RE and CHP systems from 100 kW and systems that can be remotely controlled by the network operator at any time.

What impact will this have on utilities?

With the new Network Expansion Acceleration Act (NABEG) in place, network operators have started to implement these new requirements for the redispatch process, before they are enforced in October 1, 2021. In order to fulfil these new obligations, German utilities need uniform automated data exchange processes, intensive cooperation between network operators and an improved database and standardized control processes to reduce the overall costs for network operators and ultimately for consumers.

What role does Utilihive play in this context?

The focus for many utilities in Germany today is how the implementation of Redispatch 2.0 will require additional data to be shared, such as planning and forecasting for the network operators as well as the data exchange between operational managers and network operators. Utilihive provides the ideal platform to integrate systems and manage the dataflows for all related process between the various market participants. As the leading integration platform for utilities and specialists in the automated management of energy data, we help clients like EnBW ensure grid stability and avoid network bottlenecks.
