Under normal conditions, the pan-European adequacy analysis indicates no risks of electricity supply shortages during system-wide peak moments. Nevertheless, extreme cold spells, combined with low renewable generation and unplanned outages of generation and transmission, indicate a risk of supply shortages in Belgium and France in January 2020, said the European Network of Transmission System...

Considering all the obstacles the energy sector is facing when constructing new facilities, “the year 2030 is tomorrow, and even if we start working today on everything Slovenia's National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) includes as well as what it doesn’t, it is simply impossible to build anything until 2030,” said the CEO of Holding Slovenske elektrarne (HSE), Stojan Nikolić, at...

Since the Slovenian electricity distribution network was not built to handle the loads envisaged in the European and national energy policy as part of the mass electrification of personal transport and heating, this means that we would have to build most of the LV network from scratch and then step up efforts to construct a stronger MV network and transform the 110/20 kV and 110 kV charging...

Although the level of efficiency in the use of interconnectors in Europe in the balancing timeframe improved somewhat (by 1 percentage point to 23%) in 2018, it is still relatively low when compared to the level of efficiency recorded in the day-ahead (87%) and intraday (slightly above 50%) timeframes in 2018, said the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) in its Electricity...

Electricity | RES and EE | New technologies

While it is possible to safely operate the power transmission grid with 70% of power electronics (PE) penetration in terms of grid stability and other protection issues, an even higher share of PE-based generation units (90%) is possible when talking about ensuring adequate power quality. This has been proved by the EU-funded MIGRATE (Massive InteGRATion of power Electronic devices) projects, said...

The aim of the new electricity market design is to ensure that renewable energy sources (RES) become part of the market. One of the important provisions in this regard is short term trading and increased cross-border trading, which will help keep down the overall system costs in Europe, said Elaine O’Connell from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy at the MIGRATE work...
