Danes model clean power value
Web-based tool offers broader picture of renewables deployment
The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has launched a tool for assessing the value of renewable energy in different electricity systems.
The web-based Balmorel Lite tool can simulate various scenarios to represent potential system effects of different investments in renewables, such as wind and solar, to provide a better understanding on how they affect power markets.
It analyses various effects, including curtailment of clean power and changes in electricity prices due to an increasing share of renewable energy in existing power systems.
“The objective of the tool is to provide a broader picture of the possibilities and challenges for deploying more renewable energy, integrating it into a flexible electricity system and to perform initial localised calculation of system costs,” the DEA said.
The model can be accessed and used at www.balmorellite.dk.
