Norway’s EV purchasing spree is climate friendly
If every other passenger car in Norway is plugged into the electric network by 2020, Europe will have to produce more electricity – mainly from coal-fired power plants – to meet the demand. But it will be a plus for the climate nonetheless....
Hva kan Europa tjene på å bruke Norge som grønt batteri?
Det er lønnsomt for Europa å bruke norsk vannkraft for å balansere vind- og solkraft i Europa, viser tysk studie i samarbeid med CEDREN. Resultatene skal nå brukes for å se på lønnsomheten for norske kraftprodusenter....
Value of additional Norwegian hydropower to the European electricity system
The increase of volatile generation from wind and solar power in Europe leads to a higher demand for flexibility in the electrical energy system. As part of the HydroBalance project this paper assesses the potential of Norwegian hydropower to provide this flexibility to the European energy markets b...
Value of Additional Norwegian Hydropower to the European Electricity System
Applying successive linear programming for stochastic short-term hydropower optimization
We present a model for operational stochastic short-term hydropower scheduling, taking into account the uncertainty in future prices and inflow, and illustrate how the benefits of using a stochastic rather than a deterministic model can be quantified. The solution method is based on stochastic succe...
Scheduling when Reservoirs are Batteries for Wind- and Solar-power
In this paper we take the perspective of a competitive hydropower producer located in Southern Norway, and calculate the profitability of investing in a pumped storage facility in price-scenario for Europe in 2050. A methodology to analyze the combined supply of day-ahead energy and real-time balanc...
Rollen til norsk vannkraft i 2050 – scenarioer for Norge som leverandør av balansekraft
A methodology to assess the impact of capacity remuneration mechanisms in a detailed power system model
Reduction of CO2 emissions due to wind energy - Methods and issues in estimating operational emission reductions
This paper presents ways of estimating CO2 reductions of wind power using different methodologies. Estimates based on historical data have more pitfalls in methodology than estimates based on dispatch simulations. Taking into account exchange of electricity with neighboring regions is challenging fo...
