|Description:||How can a ‘future’ mission package drive distribution grid managers in such a way that they no longer (have to) limit their activity to merely purchasing and selling electricity? An analogous line of reasoning can be followed for a broad spectrum of services. This thinking exercise will certainly not lead us to a clear picture of the future but will rather yield several possible solutions, to be ranked following their increasing ‘degree of complexity’ and decreasing ‘probability’. As a matter of fact, each possible solution will consist of a set of elements that constitute a technologically coherent whole as well as a combination of specifications for the distribution grid manager to meet. At the same time, attention must be given to the technical and economic aspects (such as the requirements concerning know-how and the eventual gaps as far as the available technology is concerned), in addition to the societal issues (e.g. the citizen/consumer acceptance, the cost allocation for the delivery of energy services and the social issue of technological exclusion and/or new energy poverty).|
