Abstract

The objective of this report is to layout the options for coupling demand to distributed generation (DG) under the Accelerating Renewable Connection (ARC) project. The report covers renewable distributed generators with connection agreements lower than the installed generation capacity (export limited firm connections) as well as distributed generators connected with non-firm connection agreements, both managed under an Active Network Management (ANM) scheme. The objective is to highlight ways in which demand can participated in providing flexibility for the benefit of DG that would otherwise be curtailed.
