FAN focuses on the following activities:
- Establishing a European open standard for access to flexibility at the source to enable optimum use of energy flexibility over time. FAN has developed a protocol that meets this requirement: the Energy Flexibility Interface (EFI). EFI is a communication protocol for controlling equipment by means of energy management software. Since there are no other or better options yet, FAN is focusing its efforts on standardising EFI.
- Promoting and disseminating the FAN philosophy to governments for the benefit of national and European policy-making, and to the energy, appliance and installation sectors. We do not do this on our own; we work with companies and organisations that share our vision.
- We have entered into collaborations and partnerships with manufacturers and/or their representatives, European and Dutch lobby partners, and partners who are helping FAN to develop the standard further.
If you are interested in working with FAN to optimally integrate flexible energy into the energy system, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to meet you to discuss the possibilities.
