In this report we have developed extensive conceptual proposals for the further development of system adequacy monitoring for increasingly European integrated electricity markets based on fluctuating renewable energies.
We have also carried out extensive scenario analyses and evaluated them with regard to their adequacy. This includes a sensitivity analysis for the planned coal phase out in Germany.
We, as r2b, have significantly enhanced our European electricity market models during the working phase of the project. Our investment and dispatch model is now in a position to take full account of the uncertainty and stochastics of feed-in from renewable energies on an hourly base. Thus, 'dry periods', 'dark lows' and 'rainy periods' can be modelled in detail on the basis of sun, wind and water. Of course, this analysis always includes corresponding electricity price forecasts for the wholesale markets.
r2b energy consulting GmbH is an independent consulting company focused on energy economics, energy-intensive industry and political institutions. Fundamental changes to the regulatory framework – and the increasing demands of the energy policy ‘target triangle’ (environmental compatibility, competitiveness, and security of supply) – pose new challenges to companies, regulators and politicians, but also numerous opportunities.
