NEMO tool suite team

The NEMO senior partners DNV GL, Fraunhofer ISE and EMD strengthened their collaboration through offering the NEMO tool suite as a service for automized grid planning to DSO and grid service providers. Interested parties will have the opportunity to use the whole tool suite or a combination of the tools depending on the relevant challenges in their electricity grids with an influence on grid planning.

Ringkøbing Amts Højspændingsforsyning a.m.b.a (RAH) delivers electricity to large parts of private households, institutions and companies in Jutland with approximately 35,000 customers. The supply area covers an area of ​​1,450 km2.
The distribution of electricity to customers and shareholders is the core competence of RAH with a focus on proximity, quality, security of supply and price.



Ringkøbing Fjernvarme (RFVV) is a district heating company owned by the 4,100 heat consumers. The CHP capacity at RFVV is a 6.2 MW gas turbine and a 8.87 MW gas engine. It has installed a 12 MW electrical boiler and a 15,000 m2 solar collector. The thermal stores of RFVV could allow the flexible operation which is needed for integrating EVs and wind energy plants into the electricity network. In this context, the two thermal stores at the Rindum plant are 3,000 m3 and 2,500 m3 while the thermal store at the solar heat plant is 1,500 m3.

RFVV sells electricity in the spot market and participates in two of the balancing markets, the regulating power market (tertiary control) and the primary reserve market, with both the CHP-units and the electrical boiler.
