A work of Telecom Italia and RSE highlights that more than 60% of the energy demand of an Italian residential customer has a degree of flexibility and might be potentially shifted or modulated in energy by temporary modifications of the temperature set. Or, looking at the power profile, 50% of the power demanded at peak time by a residential customer.
What if we might exploit flexibility of 20 Million customers?
- 6 GW of flexibility between 19 PM and 21 PM
- 2.4 GW of flexibility available over all 24 hours
- 100 GWh/day of flexibility
