This report presents a framework for assessing the distribution system and distribution system operator’s (DS0) current status and required development to meet different future scenarios. The framework is not only considering the required advancement of technology, but also with regards to markets and services, as well as policies.
The framework is based on a number of baseline indicators that describe the current status of the distribution systems. From these indicators, the development gap can be identified, and the possible development required for different scenarios can be obtained. The report include a short assessment of three distribution systems in France, The Netherlands, and Sweden, respectively, to investigate their status and possible development gap required to become future intelligent grids envisioned by UNITED-GRID.
