THE VALUE OF THE GRID IN THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
The electricity grid is the key to achieving the electricity sector of the future
Electricity grids provide consumers with a series of services that extend beyond merely delivering electricity. They enable the optimum development of both distributed and centralised energy resources, guaranteeing the most efficient form of supply.
- The grid provides value to its users: the connectivity it offers, integrating generation and consumption globally, minimising the investment required to guarantee the supply of electricity and increasing the efficiency of the system. The connection to the grid allows the optimum development of both the distributed and centralised energy resources.
- Grid tariffs must be upgraded, avoiding cross-subsidies.
- The grid remuneration model must incentivise the optimum use of existing infrastructures, the new smart networks and the distributed resources integrated with the grid.
- The regulation on distribution activities should create incentives for technological innovation and for the digitisation of the networks of the future.
