- a price difference between day and night for a kWh of energy.
- A new demand management technique currently under development in the energy domain is the ‘smart grid technology
- that operating a storage facility (in optimal circumstances)in a market environment in order to balance demand and supply will not be profitable/ viable and therefore not effective. When performance improves, the viability of this approach will decrease.
- Managing demand and supply geographically can also being done by adjusting prices. It is a practice often applied in the energy system and way of thinking which is common for economist, but not for operations management.
The effects, however, depend on the price elasticity of the good under considering.
Hence, the final conclusion is that studying supply chain literature is helpful in order to understand energy system flexibility. It is very valuable to make use of the relevant knowledge of flexibility described in supply chain literature for the development of a theoretical base of energy system flexibility and in the end, the development of flexibility services.
Therefore, this existing knowledge can accelerate these developments significantly and provide solutions for the balancing problems of hybrid energy system with increasing penetrations of sustainable intermittent energy sources.
