Dissemination strategy on electricity balancing for large scale integration of renewable energy

Objective

DESIRE will disseminate practices which will integrate fluctuating renewable electricity supplies such as wind power into electricity systems using combined heat and power. This will allow an increase in pan-European trade in electricity, it will improve the economic competitiveness of both CHP and wind power, and allow the proportion of renewable electricity that can be absorbed by the system to increase throughout the ED.

As proportions of renewable electricity rise, so does the threat to pan-European trading in electricity. Trans-boundary electricity inter-connectors will become blocked with international transfer of excess wind power supplies. We shall spread knowledge about the short and long term solutions to these problems. In the short term we can use wind power and CHP plant to co-produce a balanced, non-fluctuating, electricity output. Accumulators are heat stores which enable CHP plant to shift energy production from one time to another.
