Transmission grid congestion is one of the consequences of an increasing power generation from intermittent renewable capacities. These are often installed in the periphery and have rare generation peaks. It thus becomes more complicated to ensure a balanced grid operation at all times. It is necessary to develop holistic strategies for the management of congestion that consider short and long operating horizons. This paper introduces several congestion management mechanisms along minimal analytical and numerical models. These solutions are then discussed in regard to the necessary data availability and their contribution to an improved congestion management strategy. The paper therefore contributes to the development of a research agenda at the intercept between economists and computer scientists in the area of energy informatics.
