© 2016 IEEE. Subject of this analysis is to show how storage is operated optimally under renewable and load uncertainty in the electricity system context. We estimate a homogeneous Markov Chain representation of the residual load in Germany in 2014 on an hourly basis and design a very simple dynamic stochastic electricity system model with non-intermittent generation technologies and storage. We compare these results to perfect foresight findings and identify a significant over estimation of the storage potential under perfect foresight.

While the 2009 EU Renewables Directive allows countries to purchase some of their obligation fromanother member state, no country has yet done so, preferring to invest locally even where load factors arevery low. If countries specialised in renewables most suited to their own endowments and expandedinternational trade, we estimate that system costs in 2030 could be reduced by 5%, or €15 billion a year,after allowing for the costs of extra transmission capacity, peaking generation and balancing operationsneeded to maintain electrical feasibility.Significant barriers must be overcome to unlock these savings. Countries that produce more renewablepower should be compensated for the extra cost through tradable certificates, while those that buy fromabroad will want to know that the power can be imported when needed. Financial Transmission Rightscould offer companies investing abroad confidence that the power can be delivered to their consumers.They would hedge short-term fluctuations in prices and operate much more flexibly than the existingsystem of physical point-to-point rights on interconnectors. Using FTRs to generate revenue fortransmission expansion could produce perverse incentives to under-invest and raise their prices, sorevenues from FTRs should instead be offset against payments under the existing ENTSO-Ecompensation scheme for transit flows. FTRs could also facilitate cross-border participation in capacitymarkets, which are likely to be needed to reduce risks for the extra peaking plants required.

Green R, 2015, Climate-change Mitigation from Renewable Energy: Its Contribution and Cost, The Economics and Politics of Climate Change, ISBN: 9780191808616

© Oxford Review of Economic Policy, 2009. All rights reserved. This chapter examines the role of renewable energy in mitigating global climate change. It begins by considering what renewable energy resources are available to the EU before assessing the impacts of renewable energy consumption targets set by the EU on the energy system and on energy costs. It also discusses the cost of renewable energy to consumers and the reasons for supporting renewable energy. Finally, it outlines the design of policies to support renewable generation for climate change mitigation.

Green RJ, Staffell I, 2015, Evidence on Wind Farm Performance Decline in the UK, Evidence on Wind Farm Performance Decline in the UK

Onshore wind farms in the UK have aged at about the same rate as other kinds ofpower station. The average wind farm has an annual load factor of about 28% whenfirst commissioned, which declines by about 0.4 percentage points per year. After 15years, the load factor would have fallen to 23%. This ageing does not appear to havemade developers replace their farms early. Forty out of the first forty-five windfarms commissioned in the UK were still operating at this age; four had beenrepowered. Taking this deterioration into account raises the levelised cost ofelectricity by around 9% over a 24-year lifespan, discounting at 10 per cent a year.This is a summary of the peer-reviewed paper “How does wind farm performancedecline with age?” published in Renewable Energy, vol. 65, pp 775-786, which isavailable to download from http://tinyurl.com/wind-decline.

Green RJ, 2013, The Future Role of Energy in Manufacturing, London, Publisher: Government Office for Science

This report considers the present and future role of energy in manufacturing, in the context of the need to deliver a low-carbon economy. That need presents two threats to UK-based manufacturers, and two opportunities. The first threat is that the price of energy in the UK will rise, compared to the cost faced by competitor firms abroad, placing UK manufacturers at a significant disadvantage. The second threat is that a low-carbon electricity supply will be unreliable, and that the cost of power cuts will rise. The first opportunity is related to this threat – manufacturing sites that can reduce their electricity imports at times when the power system is under stress are already paid for doing so. The need for such demand-side management, the options for providing it, and the price paid are all likely to increase over time. The second opportunity is that new low-carbon products will be needed – not least in the transport sector – and UK-based firms may be able to break into these new markets.
