OSGP Alliance, founded in 2006 as the Energy
Services Network Association, is an
independent global, non-profit association that
promotes the adoption of the Open Smart Grid
Protocol (OSGP) and related services  and
infrastructure for smart grid applications.
Founded in 1985, SolarPower Europe (the European
Photovoltaic Industry Association)  is the voice of the
photovoltaic industry in the world’s largest PV market,
with Members active along the whole solar PV value
chain: from silicon, cells and module production to
systems development and PV electricity generation
as well as marketing and sales.
The Association's main objective is to increase exchange of
information and experience among its members and to
expand access to energy regulatory experience around the
world.

The Founding Members identified the purpose of ERRA as
follows:
COGEN Europe promotes the widespread development of cogeneration in Europe and worldwide.
To achieve this goal, COGEN Europe works at the EU level and with member states to develop
sustainable energy policies and remove unnecessary barriers to implementation.

COGEN Europe is involved in a wide range of functions such as:
•  Representing the interests of COGEN Europe members and of the cogeneration sector
•   Organising the COGEN Europe Annual Conference.
•   Participation in European projects.
•   Coordination of internal expert Working Groups.
•   Production of COGEN Europe publications.

The COGEN Europe network covers the whole of the European Union, Central and Eastern
Europe, and also includes Japan, Australia and the United States.
COGEN Europe’s status is that of a Belgian non-for-profit organisation
COGEN Europe is the European association for the promotion of
cogeneration. Its principal goal is to work towards the wider use of
cogeneration in Europe for a sustainable energy future. Cogeneration or
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the most efficient way to deliver
heating, cooling and electricity. It is based on the simultaneous
production of electricity and thermal energy, both of which are used. The
central and most fundamental principle of cogeneration is that, in order
to maximise the many benefits that arise from it, systems should be
based on the heat demand of the application.

Lead Demand Flexibility Partner
a transformative real-time energy-balancing platform that optimizes distributed energy assets,
leveraging their power system flexibility to increase renewable energy adoption and reduce fossil-
fueled generation.
                     
The
Symphony by Enbala.TM  distributed energy resource management platform provides a
revolutionary, highly flexible approach for creating controllable and dispatchable energy resources.  
In 2016, it was named the #1 virtual power plant (VPP) software in the world by Navigant Research.
Symphony unobtrusively captures and aggregates customer premise generation and consuming
loads, energy storage and renewable energy systems to form a network of continuously controlled
resources. It intelligently and dynamically optimizes and dispatches these energy resources to
respond to the real-time needs of the power system.

Enbala’s customers include regulated and unregulated energy service companies and vertically
integrated utilities looking to leverage or deploy customer premise assets for wholesale and retail
energy markets, power system balancing operations, distribution grid operations and aggregation
applications. Customers using the Enbala platform have been able to firm renewable energy
resources, leverage customer-side assets for ancillary services like frequency regulation, mitigate
substation upgrades and reduce the use of traditional generation resources for spinning reserves.  

Through the better management of distributed energy resources enabled by Enbala, reliance on
fossil-fuel-based generators is minimized, greenhouse gasses are reduced, capital asset
construction costs are deferred, the problems of renewable intermittency are solved, grid efficiency
and reliability are improved, new revenue generation opportunities are created, and stronger utility-
consumer partnerships are forged.
