This talk discusses how market mechanisms and automated trading strategies can be used to control the flexible consumption and generation units of the community members in such a way that they make the best possible use of existing distribution networks and support the network operator in avoiding and eliminating congestion situations. This ultimately helps avoiding grid reinforcements or allows to provide a better service with the existing grid, keeping in mind that it takes much longer to reinforce the grid than to build and connect many new (fluctuating) decentralized renewable generators and new loads such as heat pumps and electric vehicles. Bio: Since 2017: Professor of Control and Integration of Grids at INATECH; before: Professor for Energy Systems Technology and Energy Economics, in particular intelligent decentralized structures for sustainable power supply (Smart Grids) at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences, Fellow and head of the research project “Smart Grids” at the foundation neue verantwortung, Berlin, Senior Researcher and Project Manager in the research area “Future Energy Systems”, SAP AG, Research Assistant at the University of Mannheim, Research Fellow at the Iowa State University, Research Assistant at the University of Karlsruhe (TH).
