Denmark is facing rapid development in distributed generation. Currently, wind plus local CHP account for more than 50% of generation. On the western side of the system, hourly wind generation at some points of the year exceeds the domestic demand.
The scenario for the close future is an increase of wind energy share up to 50%. This paper explores the current and future tools to accommodate such great renewable and decentralised generation. To give an example, local CHP has learnt to manage its electricity generation, responding to market signals and contributing to system stability. Cross-border trading is also an essential tool. Renewables growth will definitely need reinforced interconnections and flexible markets.Log in to post comments
