    Abstract

    The paper analyses the economic value of using electrical heat boilers and heat pumps as wind power integration measures relieving the link between the heat and power production in combined heat and power plants. Each of these measures has different technical and economic characteristics making a comparison of the value of these measures relevant. A stochastic, fundamental bottom-up model taking the stochastic nature of wind power production explicitly into account when making dispatch decisions is used to analyse the technical and economical performance of these measures in a North European power system covering Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
