Grid Flexibility Solutions: Navigating Congestion Issues


Axel Meeuwissen is a network strategist at Enexis, a distribution system operator (DSO) that develops and manages energy networks in the Netherlands. His team’s work focusses on the development of flexibility in network congestion management, a contemporary issue due to the increasing scarcity of network capacity. Axel holds a MSc in Applied Physics from the Delft University of Technology and has gained experience in the energy sector by exploring several professional roles in his career. In his talk, he will discuss the current challenges in identifying and utilizing flexibility in existing energy networks.
