The invention relates to a method 20 for managing a subscriber to a first network. According to the invention, the method comprises the following steps. A token 12 is coupled or connected to a device 16. The token determines and sends at least one identifier 24 relating to the device, through the first or a second network, to a first server 106. The first server receives at least one identifier relating to the token and the at least one identifier relating to the device. The first server verifies 26 whether the at least one identifier relating to the device is or is not authorized to be used in association with the at least one identifier relating to the token. Only if the at least one identifier relating to the device is not authorized, the first server or a second server sends to a HLR type entity 104 information 28 relating to an attachment to the first or the second server accompanied with the at least one identifier relating to the token. The HLR type entity sends to a VLR type entity 112 a removal request 210 for removing the identifier relating to the token from a database accompanied with the at least one identifier relating to the token. The token sends to the VLR type entity an attachment request 212 for attaching to the first or the second network accompanied with the at least one identifier relating to the token. The VLR type entity sends, through the first or the second server, to the HLR type entity a network attachment request 214 for attaching to the first or the second network accompanied with the at least one identifier relating to the token. The first or the second server intercepts the network attachment request without forwarding to the HLR type entity the network attachment request. And the first or the second server sends to the VLR type entity predetermined first information 218, the first information allowing to forbid an attachment by the device, through the token, to the first or the second network.

Four European TSOs of Central-Eastern Europe (Austria, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia), associated with power system experts, electricity retailers, IT providers and renewable electricity providers, propose to design a unique regional cooperation scheme: it aims at opening Balancing and Redispatching markets to new sources of flexibility and supporting such sources to act on such markets competitively. Thanks to a prototype aggregation solution and renewable generation forecasting techniques, flexibility providers distributed generators (DG) and Commercial and Industrial (C&I) consumers providing demand response (DR) are enabled, through retailers acting as flexibility aggregators, to provide competitive offers for Frequency Restoration Reserve (including secondary control activated with a response time between 30 seconds and 15 minutes). A comprehensive techno-economic model for the cross-border integration of such services involves a common activation function (CAF) tailored to congested borders and optimized to overcome critical intra-regional barriers. The resulting CAF is implemented into a prototype Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform, securely integrated within the four TSOs IT systems: this makes research activities about cross-border integration flexible while linking with the aggregation solution. Use cases of growing complexity are pilot tested, going from the involvement of DR and DG into national balancing markets to cross-border competition between flexibility aggregators. Based on past experience with tertiary reserve, participating C&I consumers and DG are expected to provide close to 40MW of secondary reserve. Impact analyses of the pilot tests together with dissemination activities towards all the stakeholders of the electricity value chain will recommend business models and deployment roadmaps for the most promising use cases, which, in turn, contribute to the practical implementation of the European Balancing Target Model by 2020.
