Objective and Timeline

Main aim of the DRES2Market project is to develop comprehensive and affordable approach to facilitate effective participation of distributed generation based on renewable energies in the electricity markets, and enable to provide balancing and reserve services according to market criteria.

DRES2Market is focused on overcoming existing barriers (technology and regulatory framework) for developing integration of RES technologies:

  • Identifying main regulatory barriers and restriction due to the regulatory framework for the RES penetration to develop business.
  • Identifying other barriers to develop RES projects, administrative and logistic barriers, restrictive trade rules, and evaluating measures to mitigate them.

Evaluation of existing technologies (power generation, energy storage solutions, smart technologies, etc.) will be focused on designing appropriate approaches for effective integration of distributed generation in the electricity and ancillary services markets, proposing evolution of technology to fulfil requirements to participate in these markets and recommend standards for these technologies.

Analysis of existing grid codes and markets rules in the European markets to assess their capacity to enable participation of variable renewable energy.

Identification of opportunities for the active participation of final consumers (based on distributed generation) in penetration of these technologies, according to market criteria, proposing collaborative schemes.

Identification of arguments of positive impact of these technologies, to obtain social acceptance of these technologies.


The project started on 1st August 2020 and will last until 31st of January 2023.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Grant Agreement No 952851
