Short-term flexibility in power systems: drivers and solutions



The Technical Brochure "Short-term flexibility in power systems: drivers and solutions" explores the need for flexibility in the time frame between real time and up to 12 hours ahead in the future power system. First drivers are discussed, followed by a range of solutions. The main contribution of the report is based on a survey that was answered by 22 countries across the globe, about drivers for the need for flexibility, expected future providers as well as future market arrangements. The increased penetration of wind and solar PV are clearly seen as the main driver, while hydro and batteries are expected to give the most important contributions, however with some variation between continents.
