Effects of decentralized new-gas injection in relation with sustainable electricity on the market system dynamics
What are the effects of the new decentralized injection and control of gas on the information and communication architecture?
Researchers have thoroughly investigated the effects of decentralized feed-in and control of electricity on the information and communication architecture. Yet, they did not pay attention to a parallel phenomenon in the gas industry. This research, therefore, takes this last subject matter head on. Since gas and electricity are interconnected, it will study both systems not as autonomous ones but in relation to each other. A first part of the research deals, from a business perspective, with the decentralized control of the gas grid. It models and design value networks of enterprises that provide information services in the future energy market supply. It will result in a set of requirements, from both organizational and technical aspects, for the architecture of intelligent grids of the future that will combine gas and electricity. A second part of the research concerns the architectural requirements for intelligent decentralized gas grids. A common view on the industrial organization of the energy industry holds that a central orchestrator, usually a transmission system operator, owns and manages the intelligent grid. This view can be challenged both from the supplier’s side, whereby comes local injection, and the consumer’s side, for which new information and data services are developed.
