Major European companies with considerable interests in energy exchanges abroad are now seeking to represent local industrial producers for demand response services in Greece’s balancing market.
Two major international players, currently assembling new related divisions in Greece, have already approached Greek producers to take on their representation.
Demand response system entry into Greece’s new balancing market is expected to begin within 2021, barring unexpected developments.
Once launched, foreign representatives will be able to assume demand-response, green-aggregator roles in Greece, offering balancing services to the system.
Power grid operator IPTO, in its effort to ensure grid stability, will be able to utilize the flexibility major-scale electricity consumers are capable of offering.
