Linear brengt verschillende actoren in het elektriciteitssysteem samen en geeft hen meer inzicht in de interesses en gevoeligheden van de anderen. Tegelijkertijd is het besef gegroeid dat de betrokkenheid van de eindklant enorm belangrijk en tegelijkertijd niet vanzelfsprekend is. Linear brengt al deze invalshoeken samen en zoekt naar oplossingen waarin voor iedereen voordelen zitten. Dit moet op termijn toelaten om steeds meer hernieuwbare energie in onze netten te integreren en toch als geheel de goedkoopste oplossing te vinden met een correcte verdeling van de lasten en de voordelen.

Maatschappelijke impact

  • Linear biedt bedrijven wetenschappelijke kennis en een testomgeving om energievriendelijke producten te ontwikkelen - de Electrabel Smart Energy Box is bijvoorbeeld gebaseerd op het systeem van Fifthplay en de ervaringen hiermee opgedaan binnen Linear.
  • Linear onderzoekt hoe gezinnen overtuigd kunnen worden om slimme toestellen in huis te halen.
  • Linear kijkt welke concepten en technologieën voldoende meerwaarde hebben om verder te ontwikkelen en in de praktijk te zetten en welke niet.
  • Linear verzamelt de meest gedetailleerde verbruiksgegevens ooit in Vlaanderen, met zorgvuldige inachtneming van de privacy van ieder deelnemend gezin.
  • Linear brengt 20 partners samen in een engagement om samen te onderzoeken hoe we onze hernieuwbare energie optimaal kunnen inschakelen.
  • 250 gezinnen worden actief geïnteresseerd voor hun eigen energieverbruik en gevraagd om over hun verbruik na te denken en het aan te passen.
  • 190 gezinnen hebben slimme toestellen in huis gehaald om ze uit te testen en te kijken of die helpen bij het verschuiven van hun energieverbruik.
  • 30 gezinnen krijgen de kans om 10 weken lang een elektrisch voertuig uit te testen en te kijken of zij die investering de moeite waard vinden.
  • 60 gezinnen worden door de variabele tarieven aangemoedigd om actief hun verbruik zo veel mogelijk af te stemmen op de beschikbaarheid van hernieuwbare energie.
