Renewable Energy Integration: Practical Management of Variability, Uncertainty, and Flexibility in Power Grids, Second Edition, offers a distilled examination of the intricacies of integrating renewables into power grids and electricity markets. It offers informed perspectives from internationally renowned experts on related challenges and solutions based on demonstrated best practices developed by operators around the world. The book's focus on practical implementation of strategies provides real-world context for the theoretical underpinnings and the development of supporting policy frameworks. The second edition considers myriad integration issues, thus ensuring that grid operators with low or high penetration of renewable generation can leverage the best practices achieved by their peers. It includes revised chapters from the first edition as well as new chapters. Lays out the key issues around the integration of renewables into power grids and markets, from the intricacies of operational and planning considerations to supporting regulatory and policy frameworks. Provides updated global case studies that highlight the challenges of renewables integration and present field-tested solutions and new Forewords from Europe, United Arab Emirates, and United States. Illustrates technologies to support the management of variability, uncertainty, and flexibility in power grids.

Cross-border trade in electricity is rapidly expanding as a result of technical innovations, economic and geopolitical developments, and the ongoing decarbonisation of the electricity sector in response to climate change. The expansion of electricity networks and the integration of increasing shares of renewable energy (RE) electricity into the grid have made long-distance electricity flows both feasible and desirable. Drawing on the work of experts in trade and energy law and policy, and offering novel, multidisciplinary perspectives on the rapidly evolving landscape shaping international trade in electricity, this book examines the most important challenges - technical, economic, legal and policy-related - posed by long-distance and sustainable electricity trade. The book explores the regulatory implications of the policy instruments aimed at supporting RE electricity and considers how best to promote greater overall coherence in international electricity governance.

This book provides an up-to-date, rigorous analysis of the state of the art of solar photovoltaic (PV) generation. It focuses on the economic analysis of solar PV generation technologies as well as the policies that have been devised and implemented around the globe to support it. It provides the main theoretical tools for understanding the cost of these technologies, and discusses them from both a historical and comparative perspective with respect to other competing technologies (both conventional and renewable). In addition, it presents the conceptual rationale to maximize reader insights into whether and how public support for these technologies is justified as well as the consequences for the economy of different promotion measures. Integrating concepts from different economics disciplines (environmental economics, innovation economics, industrial economics and public economics) into a coherent basis for the analysis of the costs and policies for solar PV electricity, it provides an update to the literature to reflect recent advances in and deployments of solar electricity and the drastic reduction in associated costs.

Im Kontext der Energiewende sind Energiespeicher ein zentrales technisches, wirtschaftliches und energiepolitisches Thema. Die Autoren dieses kompakten Werkes geben einen umfassenden Überblick über die verschiedenen Aspekte der Energiespeicherung. Sie beschreiben zunächst die Bedeutung von Energiespeichern in der Energieversorgung und definieren ihre Rolle darin. Dann gehen sie auf den Speicherbedarf in der Strom-, Wärme- und Kraftstoffversorgung im Kontext der Energiewende ein. Im Hauptteil werden die verschiedenen Speichertechnologien ausführlich vorgestellt sowie ihre Vor- und Nachteile diskutiert. Praktische Anwendungsbeispiele und die Integration von Speichern über alle Energiesektoren hinweg runden das Buch ab. Zahlreiche Grafiken und Beispiele veranschaulichen das gesamte Feld der Energiespeicher und sind als Ergänzung mehrsprachig online in Farbe verfügbar. Die 2. Auflage enthält ein neues Kapitel zu den rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen, neue Studien zum Speicherbedarf, Power-to-X für die chemische Industrie, neue LOHC- und Lageenergiespeicher sowie neueste Trends zu Kostenentwicklung und Batterieanwendungen. „Endlich ein umfassendes Buch zur Energiewende, das auch für technische Laien verständlich und inspirierend geschrieben ist." Franz Alt, Journalist und Buchautor „Das großartige Werk sei allen empfohlen, die sich wirklich für die Zukunft unseres Landes interessieren. Es zeigt auf eindrucksvolle Weise: Es wird nicht einfach, aber wir schaffen das.“ Prof. Dr. Harald Lesch, Physiker und Fernsehmoderator

English summary: The legal regulations concerning the connection of offshore wind farms to the national grid have recently been amended. As part of the amendments of articles 17a ff. EnWG (the law governing the energy industry), both the public and private legal aspects of the grid connection have been fundamentally reformed. In his study, Frederic Geber addresses both these aspects in detail. As far as the public aspect is concerned, he points out the interrelation between private and public strategy and also deals with the options for legal protection. With regard to the private legal aspects, he compares the current liability system for later grid connections to the previous legal regulations. In addition, the author demonstrates how national planning fits into cross-border plans for a European super-grid. To this end, he discusses the role of the new EU guidelines for trans-European energy networks (TEN-E) 347/2013 and argues for even stricter European rules for the improvement of efforts to connect national grids. German description: Kurzlich hat der Gesetzgeber die Regelungen uber die Netzverknupfung von Offshore-Windenergieanlagen novelliert und mit den 17a ff. EnWG sowohl die offentlich-rechtliche als auch die zivilrechtliche Seite der Netzanbindung grundlegend reformiert. Beide Aspekte behandelt Frederic Geber in seiner Untersuchung eingehend. Im offentlich-rechtlichen Teil zeigt er das Zusammenspiel privater und offentlicher Planungen auf und geht auf Rechtsschutzmoglichkeiten ein. Der zivilrechtliche Teil stellt das aktuelle Haftungssystem fur verspatete Netzanbindungen der fruheren Rechtslage gegenuber. Daruber hinaus stellt der Autor dar, wie die innerstaatlichen in uberstaatliche Planungen eines europaischen Supergrid eingebunden sind. Hierzu bespricht er die Rolle der neuen Energieinfrastruktur-VO (TEN-E-VO) 347/2013 der EU und pladiert fur eine noch stringentere europaische Regelung zur Verbesserung der innerstaatlichen Anbindungsbemuhungen.
