The steadily growing share of volatile renewable energies in power generation poses a major challenge for energy producers and consumers. One possibility for increasing grid stability and thus the security of electricity supply is Demand-Side-Management (DSM). Since a load adjustment in the manufacturing industry is often followed by an intervention in the production process, logistic targets in production can be adversely affected. In order to evaluate the risk that occurs for energy flexible manufacturing companies, an approach based on existing evaluation methods is developed.
