[Q2 2022] Allow for  annotations on time series, e.g. to model processes and operator feedback. [work has started in Q1]

[Q2 2022] Better plotting support (via API/vega-lite) for plugins.

[Q2 2022] Dockerization – allow to start a FlexMeasures node to be deployed quickly.

[Q3 2022] Actuator & sensor-dependency models for more customizable plugins.  For forecasting and scheduling.

[Q3 2022] Authorization model for allowing "super-accounts" to manage other accounts (e.g. for ESCos) or add data to them (e.g. meter data companies).

[Q3 2022] Smarter monitoring.

[Q4 2022]  Build out the flexibility modelling, by supporting Fraunhofers Energy Flexibility Data Model (EDFM)

[Q4 2022] Scheduler compatible with ShapeShifter (based on USEF flex trading protocol)

[Q1 2023] Better tooling to work well at scale (e.g. support load balancing, db sharding etc). Also using Docker to scale up more flexibly (e.g. in Kubernetes).
