Flexibility options in low-carbon scenarios for European energy system - Online Workshop

The H2020 project Open ENTRANCE developed four European scenarios which aim to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5°C to 2.0°C.

The power system will include very high shares of wind and solar resources. In periods where the wind is not blowing or the sun is not shining, other solutions are necessary to balance to power system. This workshop provides in-depth insights about the impact on the power system of such measures as flexibility in demand, communities of actors, large-scale utilisation of batteries, pumped-hydro storage and seasonal storage in underground rocks.

The results further demonstrate how the Open Modelling Platform from Open ENTRANCE can be used. This Platform includes open and linked models as well as open data for the energy system in each country in Europe, and is another topic of the workshop.

Workshop objectives

  • Present and discuss analyses results related to flexibility options and impacts on the future low-emission energy system
  • Present and assess The Open Modelling Platform. This Platform models each European country as well as the pan-European low emission energy system

The half-day workshop is arranged in two main parts:

  • Part I: Flexibility options in an energy system with large shares of wind and solar resources
    • Consists of a detailed presentation of impacts of different flexibility options and their impact on the local to pan-European energy system
    • Panel discussion
  • Part II: Presentation and assessment of The Open Modelling Platform for analyses of low carbon futures for Europe
    • The Open Modelling Platform for integration of open models and data is presented and assessed.
