Attaining Grid Flexibility is Essential for Integrating Europe’s Decentralised Power Networks
This study provides insight into the key enablers affecting the flexibility of grids. The intermittency and unpredictability of renewable technologies has led power suppliers to invest in smart and flexible grid solutions. Investments in technological developments will also ensure grid flexibility during voltage dips and capacity overloads. Grid flexibility has become extremely vital for energy security. While key countries such as Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom have already defined regulatory frameworks to support energy security and efficiency, others still need to work out a robust strategy to integrate large quantities of renewable energy coming on the grids.
-As a result of global warming and climatic change, the government agendas across major European countries have been stressing the need to reduce emissions. One of the most important methods of carbon reduction is to increase the amount of electricity produced by highly efficient distributed and renewable generation technologies.
-Energy security is the key demand driver for managing grid flexibility both in eastern and western Europe. Grid instability and power outages due to capacity overload in the eastern countries and stand-by demand for intermittent renewable power source in the west continue to drive the need for a flexible and resilient grid infrastructure.
-The electricity grid can cope with higher levels of renewable energy. The volume that can be handled depends on a number of key factors including: interconnectivity with other grids, flexibility of the installed base to start or stop, and the ability to manage demand. EU markets are investing to improve interconnectivity while investing in flexible fuel capacity.
-The intermittency and unpredictability of renewable technologies has led power suppliers to invest in smart and flexible grid solutions. Fluctuations in both the demand and supply of energy has created a need for predictive analysis and forecasting methods. These tools will enable power operators to work out a robust distribution strategy.
-Political willingness and cost allocation initiatives to facilitate grid integration across various distributed generation technologies will be a key driver to improve grid stability and flexibility. Investments in technological developments will also ensure grid flexibility during voltage dips and capacity overloads.
