Our long-term objective
Technical and economic developments make new solutions both feasible and necessary. Alliander wants to do its bit by facilitating the energy transition. Our objective is to have offered all customers a smart energy meter by 2020.
Contribution from Alliander
The energy transition demands new and smart applications for the energy networks. Alliander invests in these smart technologies to facilitate the transition to a sustainable society, while continuing to guarantee reliability of supply. In 2019, the amount of solar and wind energy that customers fed into our network increased strongly. In addition, we started a major pilot for smart e-vehicle charging and made improvements for better network management. We also worked on a flexibility market in Nijmegen-Noord to gain experience matching the supply and demand of energy in case upgrading the network in the short term is not possible or recommended. Through our business operations, we are discovering new markets. Realisation of planned smart meter offering in 2019: 624,000 smart meters offered.
