Prosumage of Solar Electricity: Tariff Design, Capacity Investments, and Power System Effects

We analyze how tariff design incentivizes households to invest in residential photovoltaic and battery systems, and explore selected power sector effects. To this end, we apply an open-source power system model featuring prosumage agents to German 2030 scenarios. Results show that lower feed-in tariffs substantially reduce investments in photovoltaics, yet optimal battery sizing and self-generation ...

DIETERpy: a Python framework for The Dispatch and Investment Evaluation Tool with Endogenous Renewables

DIETER is an open-source power sector model designed to analyze future settings with very high shares of variable renewable energy sources. It minimizes overall system costs, including fixed and variable costs of various generation, storage and sector coupling options. Here we introduce DIETERpy that builds on the existing model version, written in the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS), and ...

Coronavirus Pandemic and Low Oil Prices Putting Pressure on the Gulf Countries

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the Gulf countries in a particular way. In addition to the direct consequences of the pandemic, the spread of the coronavirus has led to a collapse in demand for the Gulf countries’ most important source of revenue: oil. Its price, which had fallen initially due to the price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, collapsed in spring 2020. Although it recovered somewhat ...

Techno-Economic Criteria to Evaluate Power Flow Allocation Schemes

We develop novel quantitative techno-economic evaluation criteria for power flow allocation schemes. Such schemes assign which nodes are responsible for which proportion of power flows on a line in a meshed electricity transmission network. As this allocation is, as such, indeterminate, the literature has proposed a number of dedicated schemes. To better understand the implications of applying different ...

An Open Tool for Creating Battery-Electric Vehicle Time Series from Empirical Data: emobpy

There is substantial research interest in how future fleets of battery-electric vehicles will interact with the power sector. To this end, various types of energy models depend on meaningful input parameters, in particular on time series of BEV motor electricity consumption, grid availability, and grid electricity demand. As the availability of such data is highly limited, we introduce the open-source ...

The Impact of Transmission Development on a 100% Renewable Electricity Supply: A Spatial Case Study on the German Power System

In this paper, we analyze the interdependence between the structure of transmission infrastructure and the electricity mix, applied to the case of Germany today and into the future. In particular, we are interested in how an energy system based on a high share of distributed renewable sources operates under different transmission regimes, for example, copper plate or more constrained network topologies. ...

An Introduction to Transmission Network Investment in the New Market Regime

Transmission network investment has emerged as a pivotal problem for the electricity industry, as it adapts to the change from traditional to renewable generation, from large scale to distributed generation and from vertically integrated monopolies to vertically separated production stages in various states of competition. Because transmission coordinates the generation, distribution and sales activities ...

A Green COVID-19 Recovery of the EU Basic Materials Sector: Identifying Potentials, Barriers and Policy Solutions

This paper explores which climate-friendly projects could be part of the COVID-19 recovery while jump-starting the transition of the European basic materials industry. Findings from a literature review on technology options in advanced development stages for climate-friendly production and enhanced sorting and recycling of steel, cement, aluminium and plastics are combined with insights from interviews ...

Linear and Nonlinear Granger Causality between Electricity Production and Economic Performance in Mexico

Understanding the Granger causality directions between electricity production (EP) and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is helpful for policymakers in order to design, redesign, and implement effective energy policies. Although there are plenty of studies on this issue, no consistent conclusion about said relationship exists. In this paper, we provide an updated analysis for the case of Mexico in the context ...
