Add to Calendar 01/15/2021 08:00 Europe/Rome Storages and Power Plant Flexibility for Improving Renewable Energy Penetration

The share of renewable sources in the energy mix of several countries is constantly increasing. The idea of having 100% production from renewable is more and more realistic, but several criticalities arise from a technical point of view. Variable renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, are leading the upswing of renewable energy sources and will play a key role in the near future. Apart from the environmental benefits, this change imposes a revision of traditional power generation and management. The traditional power production systems based on fossil fuels will face new challenges since they will compensate both for load variations and variable renewable energy production. The diffusion of renewable energy systems might be hampered by the grid incapacity of absorbing their power output because of their stochastic behavior. Therefore, the transition from a fossil-fuel-based system to a renewable based one is only possible if new technical solutions are conceived and implemented. They may be oriented to allow a greater flexibility of power plants and loads and/or to guarantee a better dispatchability of renewable energy systems. These solutions may include techniques to extend the traditional plant range of operation, the use of storages, hybrid solutions or power to X to power systems. All these technologies may contribute to increase the load following capacity of traditional plant and make renewable energy easier to manage. This Special Issue would like to encourage original contributions regarding recent developments and concepts related to the management of variable renewable energy sources and the improvement of power plant flexibility. Potential topics include but are not limited to grid scale energy storages, hybrid systems, power to X to power systems, energy network integration, mini and isolated grids with high penetration of renewables, improvement of part load operation of traditional power plants, improvement of power plant start up time and load following capabilities, and strategies for the forecast and management of the power output of renewable energy systems.

Storages and Power Plant Flexibility for Improving Renewable Energy Penetration


Aims and Scope

The share of renewable sources in the energy mix of several countries is constantly increasing. The idea of having 100% production from renewable is more and more realistic, but several criticalities arise from a technical point of view. Variable renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, are leading the upswing of renewable energy sources and will play a key role in the near future. Apart from the environmental benefits, this change imposes a revision of traditional power generation and management. The traditional power production systems based on fossil fuels will face new challenges since they will compensate both for load variations and variable renewable energy production. The diffusion of renewable energy systems might be hampered by the grid incapacity of absorbing their power output because of their stochastic behavior. Therefore, the transition from a fossil-fuel-based system to a renewable based one is only possible if new technical solutions are conceived and implemented. They may be oriented to allow a greater flexibility of power plants and loads and/or to guarantee a better dispatchability of renewable energy systems. These solutions may include techniques to extend the traditional plant range of operation, the use of storages, hybrid solutions or power to X to power systems. All these technologies may contribute to increase the load following capacity of traditional plant and make renewable energy easier to manage. This Special Issue would like to encourage original contributions regarding recent developments and concepts related to the management of variable renewable energy sources and the improvement of power plant flexibility.
