Electricity Storage Systems and Their Allocation in the German Power System

Babrowski, Sonja; Jochem, Patrick; Fichtner , Wolf

The need for daily electricity storage systems increases with the growing share of volatile renewable energy in the generation mix. Since the loca-tion of decentralized electricity generation (based on reneweable energy resource potentials) and electricity demand (depending on industrial facilities and population density) in Germany are geographically apart from each other, at the same time more electricity has to be transported. At certain times, this might challenge the transmis-sion grid. Storage systems can be used for storing the surplus production of renewable energy and also help to prevent congestions in the grid. However, besides the tech-nical feasibility there are economic criteria decisive for the installation of storage systems. These depend firstly on potential alternative technologies as gas turbines or the load shift potential of electric vehicles and secondly on the price development of storage systems. In order to estimate the future demand and the strategic allocation of daily storage systems in this context, expansion options for storage systems are implemented in the optimizing energy system model PERSEUS-NET-TS. ... mehr
