The essential role of the system inertia in a future proof renewable grid
Transition Talk
by Accenture
2y ago
The decreasing stability of the grid by feeding in more renewable energy poses a future treat to the grid’s stability. What measures can we take to ensure a future proof grid? A major technical challenge associated with the energy transition is the decreasing stability in the electricity grid. By feeding in more renewable sources the system’s inertia drops, resulting in the grid becoming less capable to respond to sudden changes. The inertia, usually provided by the large spinning generators in conventional power plants, will need to be monitored and in time be substituted by new technologies ..read more

Mede mogelijk gemaakt door: Accenture The new 'Energiewet' is in the making. With this new regulation the Dutch government is changing the current Gaswet and Elektriciteitswet from 1998 with the goal to create an integrated regulation which will enable the energy transition and support the sustainability goals. However there is a lot of discussion on this new law, and what is required from legislation to facilitate the transition. What changes require new legislation? What is the role of legislation in facilitating the energy transition? And what challenges do we still have to overcome? Sander ..read more

Flexibility: Integrating more renewables in the grid
Transition Talk
by Accenture
3y ago
Mede mogelijk gemaakt door: Accenture As energy systems transition to more sustainable sources and demand for electricity increases, new challenges arise in ensuring that the lights stay on. This podcast explores the concept of energy flexibility; what is it and why do we need it now more than ever? Conventional power generation by fossil fuels provides both stability and flexibility. Supply is scheduled to match demand and gas-fired power plants can respond relatively quickly to fluctuations. Supply and demand must constantly be balanced to ensure that power failures do not occur. However, as ..read more
