Pushing a last cost integration of green electricity into the European grid

Objective

The core objective of this proposal is to enhance the proportion of electricity from renewable energy sources (RES-E) in the EU by applying a least-cost approach. A derived objective is to consider the costs of and the interactions between all important supply-side and demand-side options.

These options are:
(i) the technical constraints of the grid for access, transmission, and storage for RES-E;
(ii) the cost of an upgrade and/or extension of the grid to integrate an increased amount of new RES-E;
(iii) the costs and technical opportunities of advanced storage technologies;
(iv) the cost of reducing electricity consumption or load by means of DSM.

Another objective is to consider various scenarios of electricity supply and demand as well electricity prices in liberalised markets. This analysis will be conducted in a dynamic framework. Considering all these options it will be ensured that a certain quota of RES-E will be met with lowest costs for society.
