In Europe, the growing variability of energy produced, self-produced and consumed leads to the need flexibility in the electricity system. Flexibility on the demand side could be used by the Energy Aggregators to optimize their portfolio as well as by system operators for balancing and constraints management purposes. The Energy Aggregator model here proposed is the combination of value provided to customers and the reciprocal value received from customers in return. In this context, the Energy Aggregator modelling offers the opportunity to evaluate and subsequently exploit the potential flexibility of smaller customers.
