A sharp increase in the use of renewable energy, wind power and solar power presents many challenges to Central Europe’s large electricity system. Issues such as real time balancing production and consumption and, in particular, unexpected changes in transmission flows have caused a lot of headaches for our colleagues in terms of maintaining security of supply. Fortunately, they’ve been able to avoid extensive electricity blackouts since 2006.
The change in the electricity system is underway. The driving force is climate change and its prevention. Emissions trading and targets for renewable energy and energy efficiency are speeding up the change of the entire energy and electricity systems to carbon-free. PUBLISHED 2.11.2016
