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....
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...
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...
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
Rollen til norsk vannkraft i 2050 – scenarioer for Norge som leverandør av balansekraft
Norwegian pumped hydro for providing peaking power in a low-carbon European power market – Cost comparison against OCGT and CCGT
Norwegian pumped hydro for providing peak power in a low-carbon European power market - Cost comparison against OCGT and CCGT
This paper presents an analysis of the cost of providing peak generation from new OCGT, CCGT and Norwegian pumped hydro plants in a European power system with high penetration of wind and solar power. A method for calculation of the Levelized Cost of Peak Generation (LCPG) is proposed, which builds ...
