Guiding a Least Cost Grid Integration of RES-Electricity in an Extended Europe (GreenNet-EU27)
Title: Guiding a Least Cost Grid Integration of RES-Electricity in an Extended Europe (GreenNet-EU27)
Funding: European Commission, "Intelligent Energy - Europe" Programme
Budget: 1 288 958 EUR
Timeframe:
Description: The core objectives of GreenNet-Europe can be summarized as follows:
  • Derivation of least-cost strategies, best-practise criteria and policy recommendations for large scale RES-Electricity grid and market integration.
  • Consideration of different unbundling, cost allocation and cost remuneration principles and policies in this context, taking into consideration also the heterogeneity of legislation and regulation in the different European countries.
  • Identification of existing regulatory barriers from the grid operator’s and system operator’s point-of-view hampering large scale RES-Electricity grid and market integration.
  • Identification of additional measures and cost for both grid infrastructure extension and stable system operation due to large scale and intermittent RES-Electricity generation.
  • Modelling large scale RES-Electricity grid and system integration in several different European countries based on the simulation software tool GreenNet-Europe and a comprehensive empirical data base on potentials and cost for RES-Electricity generation.
  • Dissemination of results and policy recommendations as well as creation of networks between several important decision makers and stakeholders in the field of RES-Electricity grid and market integration.
