Renewable Energy Description:

Two important demand management measures stand out within this Royal Decree: - Development of a load management body: The Decree introduces a mechanism enabling the implementation of new energy demand measures addressed to electric vehicle charging. This body will allow for electricity reselling destined to electric vehicle charging. - Super off-peak hourly discrimination addressed to electric vehicle charging: In general, the off-peak hours slow charging of electric vehicles, typically taking place over-night, will enormously contribute to the harmonization of both daily curves, namely electricity demand, and its associated generation. This will result in a more efficient use of electricity infrastructures and a maximization of non-manageable renewable energy integration.
