Economic comparison of technical options to increase power system flexibility

Abstract

Flexibility is required to integrate variable and partially unpredictable sources of power generation like wind and solar. The paper compares several flexibility options from the economic perspective using unit commitment and dispatch model for Nordic countries and Germany. The analyzed scenarios have 20 % electricity from wind power on annual basis. At this penetration level flexibility from different heat measures appear to economic, new transmission between the Nordic countries and Germany is also profitable while other flexibility measures are not economic. Demand response, pumped hydro power, and more flexible conventional generation show markedly low system benefits, but this may be due to the high flexibility in the existing reservoir hydro power.
