FLEXIBLE ENERGY FOR EFFICIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE INTEGRATION OF RENEWABLES IN POWER SYSTEMS (UNITED KINGDOM)


flexible-power

In this paper, we set out analysis to demonstrate that using new forms of flexible generation (Smart Power Generation) can achieve significant savings over using traditional forms of flexibility from generation, particularly as the penetration of renewable generation technologies increases in the future.

Electricity market arrangements need to value this flexible energy explicitly in order for new technologies to be deployed. Regulators and/or market operators should review their markets to ensure that the signals for flexible energy are fit for purpose given the significant changes in the generation mix on the horizon. The key arrangements to focus on are market balancing and ancillary service arrangements, and the incentives that these place on market participants.
