Project: Ancillary services of regions with high shares of renewable energies for regional and European markets

Acronym REgions (Reference Number: 91439)
Duration 01/04/2019 - 31/03/2021
Project Topic REgions will enable fluctuating renewable energies (RES) to further support the energy system on several levels: regional, interregional and the European markets. RES, mostly grid connected at lower voltage levels, can help stabilizing the regional grid if intelligently operated. In addition, RES can also contribute to the stability of the higher-level grids, e.g. by intelligently rescheduling their balancing bids in the event of re-dispatch. REgions will analyse how RES can support the stabilisation of the energy system by improving traditional Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) to include also regional and interregional services and further improve the participation on the markets. Therefore, the whole tool-chain of the VPP will be enhanced in REgions as well as the interaction of different VPPs on regional and interregional level: nowcasting of PV, price forecasts (intraday, imbalance, redispatch) as well as the probability of grid accurances (re-dispatch, congestion, voltage, balancing).
