At the forefront of energy transition, aggregators unlock value in front of and behind the energy meter. The business models of aggregators are changing rapidly, influenced by changes in technology, the market design, and regulatory framework. This chapter provides an overview of the leading aggregators in Europe and their underlying business models. Based on an assessment of changes in technology and regulation, the authors proceed to identify new opportunities for aggregators in the increasingly distributed energy system that deliver value to customers and the energy system as a whole.
