RESERVICES addresses changes in the future European power system:
- High share of variable renewables → changed needs and opportunities for providing ancillary services
- Electricity market liberalisation, including market and grid-related Network Codes and market coupling need for development of an ancillary services market
- Part I: analysis of both system needs for ancillary services, and of the techno-economic aspects of provision of ancillary services by wind and solar PV
- Part II: case studies to investigate the need for services in the different scenarios and the costs and options to deliver these services.
- Assess system needs at high penetration levels and set common terminology
- Assess both wind and solar PV
- Simulate future systems on Transmission and Distribution level
In this page:
- Needs and opportunities for providing ancillary services by wind and solar PV in scenarios with high renewables penetration (50% and up), backed up by simulations in representative areas of Europe.
- Specific costs of ancillary services as provided to network operators by wind (offshore and onshore) and solar PV installed at transmission and distribution level.
- Recommendations on economic aspects and cross border trading aspects of provision of ancillary services by wind and solar PV in view of designing a European market for ancillary services;
- Interaction with relevant stakeholders by thematic workshops in various regions in Europe, papers, publications, etc.
- Technical and regulatory constrains to the development of a market for ancillary services.
