Optimising power systems

How can you optimise your power system by utilising renewables?



Capturing the opportunity of renewable energy

Around the globe, the energy market landscape is in transition, largely due to the rapidly decreasing cost of renewables. Major players are moving towards more flexible and sustainable energy systems with a rapidly increasing share of renewable energy, declining inflexible baseload generation, and a wider application of energy storage technology.

What does an optimal power system look like? The answer varies for each country, city and customer. Read the white papers on power system optimisation for various countries below.

Ukraine

The optimal path forward for Ukraine’s power system

The recent rapid growth of wind and solar-generating capacity in Ukraine, supported by high feed-in tariffs (FITs), has put financial and technical pressure on the power system and sparked a debate about the country’s ability to sustain this trend.

What are the best paths for an island to go green with an optimal system cost? Read more in the white paper.

Italy

Utilising the full potential of Italy's renewable energy future

Italy could save up to 400 million euros annually in system cost reductions, by better utilising renewables in their power system.

Ukraine

Flexibility to future-proof the Ukrainian power system

Adding 2-3 GW of flexibility in the Ukrainian power system by 2025 would reduce the curtailment of renewable energy from 30% to almost 0% and the overall system cost by 200-450MUSD per year.
