Assistance for the assessment and optimization of the power grid
KMD Flex helps grid operators to incorporate flexibility in their load analyses close to realtime. By trading and activating flexibility from local flexibility markets, grid operators can avoid bottlenecks and reduce stress periods on the power grid. They can also ensure stable operations and, consequently, a longer service life of its infrastructure.
Obtain new sources of income through flexible units
Energy companies and energy consumers can benefit from demand flexibility in the form of new opportunities to generate earnings. As an energy company, it is possible to aggregate, sell to and/or balance flexibility for existing and new local flexibility markets. Consequently, it can work as a direct source of new revenue. It is possible for B2C and B2B energy consumers to connect their assets and make flexibility available to the aggregator, which can make your power consumption more efficient and also function as a source of income.
Create a green profile by contributing with flexibility
As an energy consumer, it is possible to connect your units, regardless of whether they are charging stations, heat pumps, solar cells, air-conditioning systems in buildings, etc. and sell the flexibility. This contributes to the green energy market of the future. By working with demand flexibility, you contribute directly to the green transition and a more sustainable energy system since with reduced consumption, you reduce the load and thus extend the service life of the infrastructure.
Advantages of a full flexibility solution
A flexibility solution that covers the entire value chain
KMD EnergyFlex contains modules for grid operators, aggregators, and energy-intensive consumers.
Contribute to the green transition
By way of flexible consumption, we lower the stress on our infrastructure and ensure a green transition that is also financially sound.
Increased insight into consumption patterns in realtime
By gathering data at a higher frequency, with deeper insights and by being closer to electricity consuming units, it is possible to increase insight into our consumption patterns closer to realtime.
New source of income from flexibility
The increased need for a flexible energy system and making flexibility available creates new opportunities for generating income. If you, as an actor, are able to manage a portfolio of flexible units, then this allows you to create new business models and opportunities.
Postpone investments in the power grid
By considering how you stress your infrastructure and through data-driven decisions, it is possible to extend the service life of your infrastructure.
With KMD EnergyFlex, you can be fully operational with flexibility trading in a very short time. Once your units are identified and connected to the platform, you can immediately begin trading with flexibility.
The solution contributes to the energy market of the future
KMD will support the increased use of green energy with flexibility in the power grid through a partnership agreement with NODES
With a recently signed partnership agreement, KMD and NODES in Norway will make a technological platform available in Denmark which will allow large energy consumers to contribute to an improved balancing of the grid. The platform will also give the consumers more incentives to use power at times when there is a surplus of green power in the grid.
Agder Energi and KMD will support the demand for increased flexibility in the Nordic energy markets through partnership agreement
A new partnership agreement between KMD and Norwegian energy company Agder Energi aims to accommodate the increasing complexity in the energy market and greater demand for flexibility in the electricity grid. With the partnership agreement, KMD and Agder Energi will provide technological platforms to effectively optimize the power system and manage energy consuming assets such as heating systems, cooling systems, pumps, and electric cars.

Yes, it is possible for a live demo review of the solution.
The solution is well-proven and thoroughly tested with great success across the Nordic markets.
The solution can be integrated with other flexibility solutions such as smart charging stations, SCADA systems or other control systems. It can also be integrated into the company’s existing system landscape.
Concurrently with our nation going through a green transformation as we work on meeting the 2030 and 2050 climate goals, we need to have a more flexible energy system to support this transformation as much as possible.
The solution is fully automated and just needs to be configured according to your criteria for stress and pricing.
There are several options for connection. This can be done by way of an IoT-device we set up for you, but units can also be connected via existing SCADA systems or similar ones. The solution is fully integrated with local and national flexibility markets such as NODES, FFR and FCR.
