T12 Tools and market mechanisms for ensuring system adequacy and efficiency in electric systems integrating very large amounts of RES generation
Market4RES: Opportunities, challenges and risks for renewables integration in European electricity markets

Within the European Commission funded Market4RES project, the consultancy company 3E N.V. assessed empirically the challenges and issues of increasing RES-E penetration for the short-term, medium and long-term electricity markets. This was carried out through a selection of case studies that cover three different market regions with different RES-E penetration levels in the European electricity market with a focus on the Nordel system, Central-Western European system and the Iberian system.

OPTIMATE: a numerical simulation platform to recommend new electricity market designs integrating massive flexible generation in Europe

The aim of the FP7 project OPTIMATE was to develop a simulation platform, i.e. to develop market simulation tools, with the aim to cope with massive renewable energy integration into the EU network.

GridTECH: Innovative grid-impacting technologies enabling a clean, efficient and secure electricity system in Europe

The achievement of the European Union’s energy target for 2020 and beyond requires extensive electricity system planning and investments. In this context, GridTech aims at conducting a fully integrated assessment of new grid-impacting technologies and their implementation into the European electricity system.

Market4RES: Post 2020 framework in a liberalised electricity market with large share of Renewable Energy Sources

The aim of the IEE-EU project Market4RES is to investigate the potential evolution of the EU electricity Target Model in order to secure the European power system decarbonisation with large amounts of renewables.

Grid Operation and market sphere – a market model based on traffic light logics

Networks in Germany do not only face structurally but also temporally different challenges. The former German Ministry for Economics and Technology (now Ministry for Economics and Energy) has instated a stakeholder working group called Smart Grids and Meters that includes several stakeholders from all E-Energy projects (E-DeMa, eTelligence, MeRegio, moma, RegModHarz and Smart Watts) and an accompanying research team that offered their project results to find new approaches to deduce an equilibrium between market and grid-dominated actions in a Smart Grid infrastructure.

Evaluation of the impacts of market closure time and load flexibility with the OPTIMATE platform

The “Day-ahead design” study performed with the OPTIMATE platform aims at analyzing, for an isolated France-Belgium setup, the influence of two variables onto CO2 emissions, electricity prices and social welfare: the day-ahead closure time, thus allowing to discuss operational rules related to market closure conditions; and several load flexibility levels, thus allowing to contribute to the debate on market instruments for generation.

Comparison of cross-border management schemes with the OPTIMATE platform

The cross-border management study performed with the OPTIMATE platform aims at comparing net transfer capacity (NTC) and zonal flow-based (FB) schemes for an isolated CWE setup. This change should contribute to improve Capacity allocation and Congestion management (CACM) towards a better EU market integration.
